Geelong Bushwalking Club

Welcome to the Home Page of the Geelong Bushwalking Club, a lively and friendly group that will welcome you warmly, whether you are a beginner or an experienced walker. From a group of 6 people in 1973, the club has grown to over 200 of varying ages, interests and experience. 

Why would I join the GBC?

Here’s what our members tell us: they enjoy the chance to expand their walking experiences in a friendly and knowledgeable group. They feel safe and supported walking with us. They enjoy the high level of social interaction during a walk and the feeling of belonging the shared experience brings. They find inspiration in the attitudes and capabilities of other walkers.

If you like the sound of that, head to our Program page to see details of upcoming walks. 

Our walking days are Tuesday (easier walks), Thursday and Saturday or Sunday. 

We walk in the Otways, the Brisbane Ranges, the You Yangs, along the Surf Coast and Great Ocean walk, Ballarat, Daylesford, and sometimes further afield, with overnight or base camp walks in different parts of the state or interstate.

We ask visitors to come on 3 walks before joining the club. Contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange your visitor walks. All walkers must show proof of double COVID vaccination.
