JOIN THE LEADING BUSHWALKING GROUP IN NSW
The NPA Activities Program is the largest of its kind in NSW. We offer over 600 walks per year, with over 100 volunteer walks leaders guiding walks with minimal impact on the environment (see the Confederation of Bushwalkers Code of Ethics). Enjoy the safety of a group while exploring the spectacular & unique bushland of NSW. As an NPA member, you walk free on as many walks as you wish - both midweek and weekends. Become a member and enjoy our excellent member benefits, meet new friends, and know your membership will be helping one of the leading conservation groups in NSW to continue its important conservation work.

ALL ABILITIES AND INTERESTS
From easy, short walks right through to full pack overnight treks, NPA caters for every ability and interest. All activities are graded with easy to understand terminology so you know the distance, elevation climbed or descended, even the terrain you will encounter on the walk. Match walks to your level of fitness. As well as our regular bushwalks, we offer walks from base camps, adventurous full pack walks and a range of outdoor activities including canoe trips, bike rides, and easy & educational walks for children and families.

GREAT WALKS LOCATIONS
Walk with us from the coast to the mountains and beyond. NPA offers walks in the spectacular national parks close to Sydney, such as Royal, Ku-ring-gai Chase and the Blue Mountains and in many other places across NSW. Many walks are accessible by public transport. Come walking with us interstate and overseas too! With 19 NPA branches across NSW there are many opportunities to join local bush walking & activity programs and to participate in local conservation campaigns.
