 Walk grading system:    (updated March 2013)

        This will help you choose a suitable walk for your experience and fitness.  Unless you are a current experienced bushwalker, please start with the lower gradings e.g. DW S 1 3.  As your abilities and fitness increase you will be able to enjoy walks with a higher grading.  It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit enough to do the walk. If in doubt, ask the leader of the walk, they are always happy to help. We have a grading system but even so, what can be an easy walk for one person may be quite strenuous for another.
