CAEX generally organises two actovities per calendar month and these are typically on a Sunday.  Most walks are easy-medium day walks of around 10kms or less.  Weekends away are also a regular feature and can involve either camping or accommodation in a caravan park or shared accommodation, with day walks organised on each day. We also organise occasional extended trips interstate.  The calendar is regularly updated as activities are added to the program. Click or tap the activity in the calendar for more information.

Prospective members are welcome to attend most walks and activities. For all walks and some other activities, Prospective members are required to sign an Acknowledgement of Risk form acknowledging the risks and obligations of participating. This is a requirement of the insurance cover we obtain through BWV.

More information on becoming a prospective member 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 Catastrophic or Extreme 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.
