The Club
Shoalhaven Bushwalkers Inc. is a bushwalking club based in the beautiful Shoalhaven region on the south coast of New South Wales which is centred in Nowra - approximately 160 kms south of Sydney. The club is a non-political, community group affiliated with Bushwalking NSW. The club has a "live" program (unavailable to the public) of weekend walks, Wednesday walks (the main walking day for most club members) and social events, and also produces an e-newsletter containing various articles, walk reports and photographs.

Images from the club's walks and social activities are posted regularly on our Facebook page which can be accessed by clicking the button at the top of any page or by clicking this link - our Facebook page

We also have a Youtube channel which is occasionally updated with movies taken on our walks as well - see our Youtube channel
