General club information

All the stuff you want to know before joining or coming on a few trial walks!

Club history

 

The Logan & Beaudesert Bushwalkers was originally formed in October 1991 as the Village Bushwalkers. They still meet in the Old School house, Wharf St., Logan Village 4207 on the second Tuesday of every month.

 

It was always intended to be a casual group of like-minded people who get together for weekend walks and sometimes camping. Through our short history we have had Saturday walks, weekday walks and ventured into abseiling, canoeing, camping and through walking.

 

Occasionally the club organises more distant trips away (to Tasmania, New Zealand and to the Snowy Mountains - for example) with the object of taking on a variety of walk related activities. We try to offer a variety of walks and encourage visitors to become members to enjoy outings with us on a regular basis.
