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. The club regularly bushwalks to these scenic gems. Most are non-track walks, true bushwalking, rockhopping 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.

Want to have the chance to bushwalk the region secret gems ? Visitors and members who wish to participate are encouraged to attend the pre-walk meetings for a briefing on the upcoming walk and to register. Pre-walk meetings are held at the Blessed Mary Mackillop Parish meeting room (building behind the Church), 43 Ross River Road Mundingburra at 6pm. Refer to Calendar for dates.

Visitors are most welcome to attend the pre-walk meeting where members will be available to provide information about the Club, bushwalking in the region, and answer any queries.
