Walking Since 1939

Clubnight: Bush Search & Rescue (BSAR)– 75 Years Serving Our Community


This year sees the 75th anniversary of  Victoria Police calling on experienced bushwalkers to provide assistance in searches for missing people. Whilst the first search was a relatively informal request from Victoria Police to the Federation of Victorian Bushwalking Clubs, the relationship between the Victoria Police Search & Rescue Squad (POLSAR) and Bush Search & Rescue (BSAR) continues to be active and structured.


Ross McKinnon, an experienced BSAR member, will present an overview of some of the searches that BSAR has been involved in, as well as discussing the requirements for club members to join the BSAR callout list.


Venue: East Melbourne Library Meeting Room, 122 George St, East Melbourne.

(8 minutes walk from West Richmond train station or 4 minutes walk from Jolimont Station. Alternatively take #48 0r 75 tram. Unrestricted street parking available after 6.30pm on the Fitzroy Gardens side of Clarendon Street and on Wellington Parade. Please check signage carefully).
