Welcome to Hobart Walking Club (HWC), the oldest and largest bushwalking club in Tasmania. Established in 1929 and now with well over 800 members, HWC has groups walking, cycling, kayaking and skiing all over Tasmania and beyond. The club promotes an interest in the preservation of flora, fauna and natural scenery.

Our members go on a variety of bushwalks, from short easy rambles to long multi-day bushwalks into the more remote areas of Tasmania. There are walks on every day of the week, cycling four times a week, and regular kayaking trips on Tasmania’s rivers and lakes. The Club has experienced Trip Coordinators and is a vast resource of bushwalking information, including track notes on most of the mountains on the Tasmanian Peak Baggers List.
