Dates of existence



The University of Queensland Bushwalk Club (UQBWC), also known as Uck-buck, formed in 1950 after the dissolution of the Science Students Association in the same year. The aims and goals of the club: to encourage people not familiar with the bush to experience it; to develop and encourage the spread of knowledge and good practice in bushwalking; to serve as a meeting place and forum for walkers of all levels and experience; and to extend peoples experiences beyond track. Initially the club was permitted to build a stone hut in the saddle between East and West peaks of Mt Barney but with more people visiting Mt. Barney the hut was demolished in the mid-seventies. The clubs magazine was called Heybob, with a smaller issue called Mini-heybob. 'Heybob' was the clubs alternative call to 'Cooee' when calling to fellow bushwalkers.
