Annual General Meeting, tips, upcoming activities

Annual General Meeting outcomes

Many thanks to all the members who took the time to vote either before or in person at the meeting. As a result we now have a new set of Operating Rules, which have also been approved by YHA Australia and a new Code of Conduct June 2019.

We have also changed our year end from 31 March to 31 December, so this will be a short year, ending 31 December 2019.

Our next committee meeting will be on 7 August, so if you have any burning issues, please contact us via

President: Kris Peach

Handy tip – whitelisting club emails

As our booking system notifies you of actions needed to finalise your booking by email, please check you have “whitelisted” emails from yhabush.org.au   We don’t want you to miss out on a walk because of emails going to “spam”. More help

Photos needed

If you have any great photos from our events please send them to Photos@yhabush.org.au

80th birthday celebrations on 8 September, 2019

Hard to believe, however we turn 80 this year, as does YHA Australia.  Did you know the very first hostel site was at Warrandyte?  So there is no better place to celebrate than the place where it all began. Join us for a morning tea with YHA Australia, followed by some bushwalking.  More details
