Our History

During the latter part of 1976, Drs Chapman and Murrell conceived the idea of a Bushwalking Club for the local community, as part of the St Agnes Health Centre‚Äôs Preventative Medical Programme, the idea being to promote fitness in body and mind, by which local families could  take part in healthy outdoor activities.
                     The first programme commenced in August 1977, with meetings on alternate Friday evenings, when talks were given and slides shown on a variety of natural history subjects.
