Peninsula Bushwalking Club was founded in 1979 and is based in Mount Martha on the Mornington Peninsula. Our club is affiliated with Bushwalking Victoria (BWV) which is the peak body for Victorian bushwalkers.
The primary role of Peninsula Bushwalking Club is to promote, encourage and foster positive experiences associated with walking and bushwalking, and to ensure the members are made aware of the safe and correct procedures in bushwalking through activities and the sharing of experiences with other club members.
We have an active program for members of all ages and all fitness levels, including suburban morning walk, day walks (suburban and bush), multi-day walks from a camp site or lodge accommodation (base camp), overnight backpacking, car camps and extended trips in both interstate and overseas.
Our club also programs outdoor activities other than bushwalking, such as rock climbing, bike hikes, snow shoe camps, sailing and canoeing/kayaking. Social functions occur frequently throughout the year and are enjoyed by all.
Feel free to browse through some of our past events as well as our future events. If you are interested in participating in any of our walks, read the information on walking as a visitor and then come to our next meeting for more information.
The Club meets on the first Tuesday of the month, except in January when there is no meeting, and in November when we meet on the second Tuesday of the month.
The meetings are held at Mount Martha Community House on the corner of the Esplanade and Dominion Road. The meetings commence at 8.00 p.m. At each meeting we discuss the walks that will be held the following month and hear from the walk’s leaders. There is frequently a guest speaker presenting topics on outdoor activities and environmental conservation.
