BWQ is a member of the Queensland Outdoor Recreation Federation (QORF).
You will find bushwalkers everywhere; men and women of all ages and from all walks of life who enjoy the outdoors. We like to try something different, to stay fit and healthy while discovering hidden treasures in the forests and parks. It becomes an adventure with friends; a challenge requiring enthusiasm more than equipment.
We all share a love for the outdoors. We all want to...
It is not easy to define what is Bushwalking in comparison to walking city parks and popular tourist tracks. Bushwalking's easy start is a substantial walk on the graded tracks of urban bush areas and state national parks. Although special skills are not required to start bushwalking, some degree of physical fitness is desirable. Physical fitness will improve quickly by starting with easy walks and progressing to the more challenging. Bushwalking's degree of difficulty increases until it meets rockclimbers. If you need a rope to climb, it's rockclimbing. If you don't, it's bushwalking although many bushwalkers carry ropes for safety or packhauling.
Those attracted to bushwalking are also attracted to other outdoor pursuits and you will find many clubs have activities that include kayaking, birdwatching, abseiling and nature photography.
If you interested in bushwalking, you are encouraged to join a bushwalking club whose members have the experience and knowledge to help you go bushwalking safely.
