The Melbourne Women’s Walking Club (MWWC) was formed in 1922 by a group of young women excluded from the men-only Melbourne Walking Club.

From the start the club held both day and weekend walks, wherever the railways could take them, to explore areas of Victoria’s dense bushland. In the brief annual Christmas-New Year holiday period there were longer tours. A first history of the club was formally collated in 1987 in a volume entitled Uphill After Lunch.
