Welcome to the Gold Coast Bushwalkers Club (GCBW)

We offer a wide variety of activities to cover most levels of fitness. Come join us bushwalking through beautiful rainforests to scrambling off track up a mountain. Breeze the rivers and seaway on kayaks or try our bike rides from a leisurely meander to the more serious 100 kms events. We also offer weekends where you can put your feet up and enjoy a social yarn beside a campfire on one of our many base camps.

Our club attempts to offer most of these activities on every weekend of the year.

Membership is open to anyone over the age of 18 years. Children are welcome when accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. 

You can come and try an activity for as little as $5 (this is to cover the necessary insurance requirements). If you are already a member of an affiliated club there is no charge.

Full membership is currently $35 per year with no limit on the amount of activities you wish to participate in.

Our activities are listed in our monthly newsletter Friends on Foot (FOF) or you can access them on our website www.goldcoastbushwalkers.org.au Refer to ‘Walks Gradings & Abbreviations” page to understand the type of activity, level of fitness and terrain you can expect.

Our activities are also discussed at our monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of every month at Meeting room 1.2 Ground Floor, Robina Community Centre (green & white building), San Antonio Court, 196 Robina Town Centre Drive, Robina.

If you would like to join an activity we ask that you contact the leader (listed in FOF) to check availability and suitability. All activities will have a meeting point and you will need to arrive 15 minutes prior to departure so we can organise sign on and car pooling.
