Newcastle Bushwalking Club Inc

Activity Program

Newcastle Bushwalking Club (NBC) welcomes you. Newcastle Bushwalking Club arranges a program of activities including Bushwalking, Cycling, and Kayaking. Our activities include both day walks and overnight walks and also extended walks within Australia.

Visitors are welcome at no cost and can attend up to three activities before joining. You must attend at least one before applying to join.

NOTE - If you are not a member of the club you MUST contact the leader before attending even if booking is not required.

Booking is required for some activities. Help leaders to keep track of bookings by always using the contact method given – do not ask during another walk as it is easy to forget when several people do that.

When booking is required the leader will give you the starting location and starting time the day prior to the activity. If booking is not required then the start time and location will be shown on this page.

When attending please ensure you comply with the following social distancing requirements:
  • We recommend you do not car pool except with members of your own household.
  • Leaders will not require members to take part in car shuffles/sharing. If public transport is required it will be stated in the program.
  • Do not attend if you show the symptoms of COVID-19 or are unwell – go to a COVID-19 testing station instead.
  • Maintain a 2m gap from others on the walk at all times (except members of your own household).
  • When stopping along the walk or for morning tea maintain your 2m distance and do not share food or drinks.
  • We encourage everyone to download the COVID Safe App and have it active on the walks and rides.
