Bushwalking with a disability

Bushwalkers walk in groups for safety

Walking with a disability

Phone the bushwalking or hiking club secretary or walk leader well in advance of the walk, introduce yourself and explain your abilities and limitations. The club secretary or activity leader will be able to recommend a suitable activity for you to participate in. The leader may need to consult with the committee before accepting you on a walk. If a particular club is unable to meet your needs, don’t hesitate to contact another club which may be more responsive to your needs.
