Welcome to Townsville Bushwalking Club

2020 the club celebrates its 60th birthday. May 1960 the club was formed and has been active for 60 years.

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. They are strenuous walks, but lot of fun.

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. Must be over 18 yrs old to participate.

Want to have the chance to bushwalk the region secret gems ?
