Events Calendar

This page hosts the previews of our upcoming events that in the foreseeable future will be conducted in accordance with our COVID-19 Safety Plan.

The page is normally updated towards the end of the month, except in November and December, and all events are generally open to the public.

The details of our upcoming events are also contained in our Club Newsletter, which you can download using the links at the bottom of the page. The newsletters are published every month except January, and also contain reviews of events from the previous month and general Club news.

COVID-19 Safety Plan

The Club has implemented a COVID-19 Safety Plan to enable activities to resume within current Victorian Government regulations.

  1. Social distancing of 1.5 m to be enforced at all times during Club activities.
  2. Car pooling, in line with social distancing, is restricted to participants from the same household. All other participants must self-drive to the meeting point and walk destination.
  3. No more than 10 people may attend an indoor or outdoor activity.
  4. All participants must sign-in on the Activity Sheet at the meeting point. It is recommended that participants have the COVIDsafe app enabled on their mobile phone.

Register To Attend An Event

red exclamation markPlease note that registration for an event closes at noon of the day before the event.

WBOC Member

If you are a member of the Werribee Bushwalking & Outdoor Club you should register directly with the Leader.

Guest

If you want to participate in an event as a guest you must register using the Contact Form. Your details will be forwarded to the Leader who will then contact you to assess your level of experience and determine if the event is appropriate for you. If you are approved to participate, download the Guest Walker Form and sign the acknowledgement of risk, then present the completed form plus the $5 participation fee to the Leader at the meeting point.

You may participate in up to three events as a guest before deciding to join the Werribee Bushwalking & Outdoor Club.

Children may participate in an event as a guest at the discretion of the Leader. They must be accompanied and supervised at all times by a parent or guardian.

Member of Another BWV Affiliated Club

If you are a member of another Bushwalking Victoria affiliated club you are welcome to participate in our events but you must register as a guest using the Contact Form and advise the name of your regular club. Your details will be forwarded to the Leader who will then contact you and generally approve your participation. In this case a Guest Walker Form is not required and the $5 participation fee will be waived.

Things You Need To Know

  1. The majority of our events involve car pooling and it is expected that each passenger will contribute to the cost of fuel by making a small donation to their driver, normally $5 or $10 depending on the distance. Our events often conclude with a visit to a local café for refreshments before returning to Werribee.
  2. The rating of a walk is based on the most challenging aspect of the track as determined by our Walk Rating Scheme. Apart from distance, the rating may be influenced by the conditions in one section and therefore not indicative of the entire walk. The walk preview should provide sufficient details for you to determine if the walk is within your capability.
  3. Typically on an event you will need a backpack, good walking shoes or boots, 2-3 litres of water, lunch, snacks, and your own small first aid kit including any personal medications you may need. Depending on the time of year you might also need sunscreen and a hat or cap. We also recommend a lightweight rain coat or poncho that can be stored in your backpack.
