CAEX organises activities for most weekends during the year and occasional mid week walks.  The walks above are available to club members and prospective club members and this list will be progressively updated as more walks are added to the program.

Prospective members are welcome to attend most walks and activities as temporary members for the duration of the walk or activity that they register for. Prior to commencing the walk or activity temporary members are required to sign an Acknowledgement of Risk form acknowledging the risks and obligations of participating. More information is provided on the Join Us page.

During summer months, walks in forest areas are automatically cancelled on total fire ban days or if a Code Red fire danger warning has been issued for the area in which the activity is being held.  Walks in all areas may be cancelled when the forecast temperature is 32 degrees or higher.
