Bushwalking is the most accessible sport within the club and offers an opportunity to enjoy amazing landscapes in the company of  great people. Beginner 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, other places in the Victorian Alps, Wilson's Promontory, 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 challenging overnight or multi-day bushwalks.

The club has most the gear necessary for hiking available to rent for our members including, raincoats, tents, sleeping bags, navigational equipment, personal locator beacons and first aid kits - see our gear hire policy here. 

We also love protecting the environment on our adventures! We sometimes travel far and wide for our trips, and often we find ourselves using a lot petrol to get there. We want to motivate you all to save the planet by trying to use more sustainable forms of transport to get to your trips, so we have some pretty nice incentives - check out our Human Powered Discount Policy!
