The club holds a number of other activities as follows. For more specific details see Upcoming Activities.

  • The club meets on the first Thursday of each month (except January) starting at 7:30 pm and usually finishing by 9:00 pm. Club Members and visitors are welcome.  Also, everyone is welcome to enjoy a classic pub dinner, @ 6:30 pm, prior to the Club Meeting. Unless otherwise advised the venue is the Malvernvale Hotel 1321 Malvern Road, Malvern 3144 (Melways: 59 / D7). Easy access to public transport (Glen Waverley line train; No. 72 tram; Route 624 bus); also free onsite parking as well as on Malvern Road & nearby streets. Should exceptional circumstances arise, that prevent a Club Night to be held at the Malvernvale Hotel, the event will be conducted via Zoom. Members should book online for each of the club night and the dinner beforehand.  Visitors should email the secretary at to enable the booking of correct numbers for the dinner, and to ensure the club night has not been shifted to online via Zoom.

    The ordinary business of the meetings is to discuss the forthcoming walks for the month and raise any other club business. Annual General Meetings are also held in this forum. The formal business of each club night is followed by a presentation or activity loosely related to walking. There have been presentations of overseas walks, recent base camps, first aid in the bush, walking equipment, trivia nights and films.

    The meetings also provide an opportunity for members to meet and compare notes.

  • Restaurant nights are held monthly, usually on the fourth Friday evening, in a suburban restaurant. This allows members to socialise in a relaxed environment. The restaurants may be BYO or fully licensed. All Club members, partners and friends are welcome.

  • Lunches, generally scheduled for the second Friday in the month, are usually at pubs, have an optional seniors menu (or alike) and are close to public transport. They provide an opportunity for those who do not wish to drive at night to attend restaurant nights, but would like to meet up for a meal and a chat with their Club friends. All Club members, partners and friends are welcome.
  • WCV celebrates Christmas with a lunch on both a Wednesday and a Saturday in December. All Club members, partners and friends welcome.

  • Cycling events or cycling base camps are held on an occasional basis for members interested in a change and/or cycling.

  • Social activities (music events, movies, arts, book club, etc) are arranged informally between members using a platform called Slack. For more details see Social Networks.
  • Interstate or overseas trips involving walking and/or base camps are held on a less frequent basis. Advance notice is given in the program. These events give members the opportunity for a great holiday with like-minded people.
