Friends of Bogong

Our Formation


Our Formation

The first correspondence in relation to the group occurred on 16th February 1983 when founder Tom Kneen wrote to the VNPA's Geoff Durham regarding Tom's aim to form a local Bogong Friend's group.

A work party was subsequently set up for 26/27 March and undertook track maintenance work on the Razorback track.  This weekend was conducted in conjunction with the Federation of Victoria Walking Clubs.

Further correspondence between Tom, Geoff and Don Saunders (Victorian National Parks Service) took place, eventually leading to an inaugural meeting on 1st May 1984 at which the Friends of Bogong was officially formed.

Details of our old activities are under the Reports page.
