Any person who supports HikeWest’s objectives and interests may apply online for Individual membership of HikeWest. This enables individuals who are not necessarily members of one of our Member Clubs to show support for HikeWest’s efforts on behalf of all bushwalkers in the state, and to enjoy several of the benefits available to our other members.
Benefits of being a HikeWest Individual Member
