Planning is underway for the 2023 FedWalks event to be held in the Wombat State Forest on 21-22 October 2023, around the Trentham/Blackwood area.

An organising committee is being formed with volunteers from previous events ready to assist in activities such as producing the detailed walk maps, activities booklet and managing the website and online booking system.

However, we desperately need to hear from Walk Leaders who are willing to assist with leading our activities.  If we do not receive sufficient leaders, the event simply cannot go ahead.  Walk suggestions are also needed as there are still tracks closed due to storm damage.

If you are interested in leading a walk please contact Col Purchase at colwilpurc@gmail.com


FedWalks2023 is scheduled for the Wombat State Forest.  The base for the event is still to be determined.

Participants will be required to organise their own accommodation.


The event will be held on 21st and 22nd of October 2023 (with registration Friday 20 October 2023).


Failure to secure a host club has meant that the event will be organised by a collective of volunteers from various clubs.  This is not ideal but we are trying to pull the basics together to be able to offer activities on both days.


Planning for FedWalks2023 will ensure it is a COVID-safe event, conducted in line with the restrictions and best practices existing at the time.
