We organise regular bushwalking, hiking and camping trips, as well as canyoning though the rugged gorge country surrounding Armidale. Whether you’re an experienced bushwalker or just keen to give it a try, we run a range of walks to suit everyone.

What we we mean when we talk about bushwalking?
Bushwalking is what we locally call “hiking” in Australia, it refers to recreational walking in natural Australian landscapes.
A bushwalk might simply be a walk along a trail through urban parks or forest near where you live, or it could be a full day walk in a national park or reserve. For more experienced bushwalkers, it can also be a multi-day expedition where you are self-sufficient carrying a tent and food.
