Nimbin Bushwalkers Club Walks Program 2018
The Walks Committee has compiled the program with one day walk per month and one weekend/2separate day walks. You can come for one or both and also stay overnight if you prefer.
This program however may be subject to change due to bad weather. In case of any cancellations, there will be substitute walks. Therefore it is advisable to phone the walk leader a few days in advance to check that the scheduled walk is still going ahead and to inform the trip leader that you would like to participate in the club activity. Walk leaders’ phone numbers will be provided in the month before the walk on this website and in the Club's regular feature report published in Nimbin Good Times.
Each Trip is graded according to our Walks Grading System
