Adelaide Happy Wanderers


The Adelaide Happy Wanderers Bushwalking Club was started in 1982 by Keith Herbig, Bart van der Wel and David Trebilcock.

Bart van der Wel took over the organisation of the club and walkers met at his place for many years for coffee before leaving on the walk. The club has relied on walkers offering to lead walks over the years and the number of walkers have ranged from three to twenty-five. In the early programmes the club included day and moonlight walks, weekend trips, canoeing and rock climbing.
