South Coast

Bushwalking Club

Due to COVID-19 the South Coast Bushwalking Club has suspended its walks program until further notice.

The South Coast Bush Walking Club (SCBW) is based in Wollongong. Most members reside in the Wollongong, Southern Sydney, Kiama and Southern Highlands areas. We are a member club of Bushwalking NSW and abide by its guidelines.

Where do we walk?

Our walks cover all of these regions and beyond, usually with the starting point within a 30 minute to 3 hour drive, depending on the walk duration. We have bushwalks in the local Illawarra area, and in many parts of southern , south east and south west NSW.

How fit do I need to be?

Our walks are suitable for anyone from moderately fit to very fit. You don’t need experience, but you do need a moderate level of fitness to start bushwalking. All walks are graded and leaders can assist you to choose which level of walk might be suitable for you. As a minimum guide, you should be able to walk 8 to 10 km on undulating terrain.

How far do we walk?

We go for single day bushwalks which can vary in distance depending on the terrain. But you would expect to walk for 5 to 6 hours on an average day walk. We offer many multi day bushwalking adventures, which involve camping overnight. Our club also regularly offers members the opportunity to join a group for walking trips interstate and overseas.
