Also remember that banking transfers are completed on business days only, so that an EFT made on a public holiday or weekend may not be credited to the Bush Club account for three or four days.

As a Prospective Member you may participate in all activities of the Club, including attending (but not voting at) general meetings.

You are not restricted to attending particular walks. However, you must contact the leader of any walk before you attend it and obtain his or her permission. The leader may ask about your bushwalking experience, level of fitness etc to assess your ability to complete the walk. The main attribute we seek in new members is enthusiasm for bushwalking.

Prospective members may apply for full membership at any time after satisfactorily completing three qualifying walks (designated M in the walks program).
