What to Take on a Day Walk

Clothing:

  • Boots/shoes – need to be flat, comfortable, and preferably waterproof, with appropriate socks.
  • Depending on weather and season you should carry hat, gloves, waterproof jacket, over pants and sunscreen.

Jeans are not suitable for bush walking and not acceptable on our walks.

Equipment:

  • A suitable day pack (lined with strong plastic bag to keep contents dry).
  • Water – a minimum of 1 litre is recommended.
  • Personal First Aid Kit including triangular and elastic bandage, sterile dressing, assorted strips, antiseptic, blister kit, insect repellent, salt (for Leeches), matches, tweezers, hand sanitizer and any personal medication
  • Current Medical Information Form (form 2) (to be carried in outer pocket of pack).
  • A whistle, pencil and paper.
  • Provisions for morning tea and lunch. Some members carry a hot drink 
  • A small waterproof groundsheet to sit on at food breaks.
  • Money for an after walk coffee and for transport.

Take care of the environment – take nothing but photos and leave only footprints.

Carry out all your own rubbish.
