NPA activities and COVID-19

After a summer of fire, floods and storms we are now dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. The NPA is working to help protect and support our members through this time. Below you will find current guidance and new rules managing the NPA bushwalking program. These are dynamic and will be updated as the pandemic progresses and as government advice changes.

Survey paints a picture of our volunteer activity leaders and their needs

Sam Garrett-Jones, Chair of Field Activities Committee

Bushwalking styles change: a current exhibition at the State Library of NSW features pioneers Myles Dunphy and Bert Gallop at Jenolan Caves in 1912 with their bulky swags … and rifles. A century on, what burdens do our bushwalking leaders carry, and how can we best support them?

Sushi on a Bushwalk

Matt McClelland,  Activities Manager, National Parks Association of NSW

From time to time, okay quite often, I get accused of getting carried away with food on bushwalks. It started with making cheese cakes, progressed to pizza then muffins. On the latests few walks I has started tormenting the great Japanese tradition of Nori (sushi) Rolls.
