Federation Walks

Bushwalking Victoria is pleased to announce that the Bayside Bushwalking Club will be hosting the 2024 FedWalks event to be held at Wilson Promontory on 11-13 October 2024, ably supported by the Melbourne Bushwalkers and the South Gippsland Walking and Adventure Club.

2024 marks the 90th Anniversary of Bushwalking Victoria (originally the Federation of Victorian Walking Clubs) and we will be celebrating in one of our favourite bushwalking locations.

More information will be shared as it comes to hand.


Wilsons Promontory National Park or ‘The Prom’ as it is well known, is located 220 kms south east of Melbourne.

It covers over 48,000 hectares of land, plus more than 15,000 hectares of marine park.  It is Victoria’s largest coastal wilderness area, as well as our largest marine park.

It is renowned for its pristine beaches, glorious views, lush forests and abundant wildlife.


The event will be held on the weekend of 11-13 October 2024.


The Prom is a great place to visit. It’s a magical place that is enjoyed by many bushwalkers.

Accommodation for Fedwalks 2024 will be at Tidal River. Group lodges, powered and unpowered campsites have all been booked by the Event Organisers.
