Pakenham Bushwalking Club

The Pakenham Bushwalking Club was formed in 1990 when two walkers turned up for the inaugural walk at Lysterfield.  The club became an incorporated club in 1994, officially known as the Pakenham Bushwalking Club Inc.  PBWC uses the laughing Australian Kookaburra as their emblem, and has a philosophy to "walk, talk and gawk".

PBWC enjoys a membership of approximately 35 people ranging in ages from early 40s to the very energetic members of 80 plus.  A good advertisement indeed to keep fit by walking regardless of age.

PBWC enjoys close ties with the Berwick Bushwalking Club, with both clubs having some overlapping memberships.

PBWC runs their walks each Tuesday and the usual radius for walks is anywhere within 100km of the local area.  However we do have at least one week away each year at other Victorian locations.  Regions such as Halls Gap, Lorne, Bright, Daylesford, Lakes Entrance etc. have provided our club with some spectacular walking.

For a summary of the current walks program, please visit the Activites page.  PBWC encourages new members by offering three introductory walks.
