Our Vision

HikeWest’s vision is “Better bushwalking for Western Australia – A large and diverse bushwalking community enjoying world-class walking opportunities across a wide range of WA landscapes”.

Our Strategic Plan 2018-2021 embraces this vision and summarises the Board’s current high level goals and strategies.

Our mission is to foster and promote bushwalking in the state, not only for our members but also across the broader community. HikeWest collectively represents an estimated 122,000+ Western Australians who go hiking / bushwalking.

The benefits of HikeWest’s continuing promotion, support and advocacy of bushwalking will be:

  • More Western Australians will participate in bushwalking as a healthy, environmentally responsible and safe activity;
  • Bushwalking organisations will responsibly support the growth in bushwalking activity; and
  • WA will be increasingly recognised for its range of attractive bushwalking opportunities and quality trails.

HikeWest is a signatory to and supports the principles of the Walk 21 International Charter for Walking that acknowledges the universal rights of people to be able to walk safely and to enjoy high quality public spaces anywhere and at any time.
