Join Us

You must join as a financial member to join any hikes after 2 guest hikes.


Byron Hikers wants its members and leaders to have a respectful and reciprocal relationship with both nature & people.


Our members are people who understand nature’s power to heal and nurture them, yet its fragility if we don’t treat it well: people who are willing to give and receive - with nature and other club members...


To join Byron Hikers we ask:​

  1. Click on the ‘Click here to Join’ link below to become a Full Member for the next 12 months by processing your credit/debit card through Stripe.

  2. You must book in for a walk event (see below) at least 48 hours before the walk.
  3. IMPORTANT: If you book in, please show up or cancel your attendance. Many of our hikes have limited places. If you need to cancel, please do it as soon as you know so that another hiker can use your spot. People who book in and then don’t show up without notifying the leader may not be admitted into future walks.
  4. Pay careful attention to what your volunteer leader advises regarding: meeting place & time, required clothing, gear, food & drink, maintaining safety while on the walk, level of fitness & ability required to do the walk etc. People who don’t follow the leader’s instructions with careful attention to detail or are continuously late will not be admitted into future walks.

To attend walks:

Go to the ‘Events’ menu and book into one of the easier hikes as a Guest Member. These would be day hikes with only modest difficulty - Grade 3 at the most. We are happy for you to come twice as a Guest to see if you like our Club, before becoming a financial Member.
