Welcome to Townsville Bushwalking Club

Townsville CityHidden around Townsville are some very scenic jewels that not many know about or access. Some of the best waterfalls you will find anywhere, some that flow all year. Or climb some of the regions peaks to great views, or just for the challenge. Traverse magnificient gorge country. The club regularly bushwalks to these scenic gems. Most are non-track walks, true bushwalking, rockhopping and clambering up scenic mountain creeks and through gorges, or to mountain peaks.

The club conducts a bushwalk every fortnight except for December / January. Many of the walks are within an hours drive of Townsville. One-day walks are held on Sundays, and multi-day bushwalks are often conducted during the year.
