Bushwalking is the most accessible sport within the club and offers an opportunity to enjoy amazing landscapes in the company of  great people. Novice and experienced bushwalkers alike are all welcomed at MUMC.

We have trips occurring year round to destinations such as the club hut on Mt Feathertop, Bogong High Plains, Mt. Howitt in north-east Victoria, and the Grampians in the west. MUMC members have also been known to venture further to places like Tasmania, the Blue Mountains of NSW and as far as the Larapinta Track in the NT and New Zealand.

Beginners are encouraged to participate on one of our regularly-run day trips before moving onto more serious and committing overnight or multi-day bushwalks.
