National Insurance Scheme for Bushwalking Clubs
Bushwalking Victoria participates in the National Insurance Scheme negotiated and executed by Bushwalking Australia which arranges insurance cover for affiliated clubs and their members. Policies that are available include Public Liability, Associations Liability, and Personal Accident Insurance. Leisure travel insurance cover for use by club members when participating in club organised domestic and overseas trips is also available through the insurance broker as a separate service.
Not all Clubs participate in the Personal Accident insurance scheme arranged through Bushwalking Australia. For those Clubs which are covered, it is up to the individual member to lodge a claim directly via the Personal Injury Claims form. Neither Clubs nor Bushwalking Victoria is directly involved in claims processing. Important Note: Some member clubs have elected on behalf of their members to not participate in the Personal Accident Insurance Scheme for 2020/21. Here is the list of these clubs.
