Cocktails on the Castle 2013 - the heatwave edition!

Arguably, bushwalkers are not always the most elegant outdoor enthusiasts. They don't have the cat-like sinewy leanness of rock climbers, the presence of sleek lines of carbon fibre mountain bikes, nor the sheer Baywatch hair-shake sexiness of surfers.

However, once a year, outdoor enthusiasts from all inclinations within the ANU Mountaineering Club go bushwalking up to The Castle within the Budawang Range, and there don dinner jackets and cocktail dresses for a night of elegance, cocktails and the most delicious food any bushwalker ever dreamed of.

Expedition and Adventure Fund - Now Open!

You may have heard of our expedition fund – since 2007, it’s helped to get some awesome and inspiring trips off the ground, including mountaineering in New Zealand and kayaking down Tassie’s Franklin River. It’s also given a lot back to the club - through the upskilling of members, and subsequent trips that increase opportunities for all.

However, in recent years, it doesn’t seem to have met the needs of our members. So, in 2014, we’re trialling an addition – The Adventure Fund.
