Frequently asked questions


πŸ‘β”"I'm not an Adelaide uni student. Can I still join?"

  • πŸ‘πŸ’¬Yes, the general public (including students from other universities) are welcome to join the AUMC and we have plenty of non student members. You'll just need to say that you're general public in the registration process and it will cost a bit more as AU sport charges a $97 fee to non-students to cover costs. Our AUMC membership fee is $20 for everyone.


πŸ‘β”"What is included in an AUMC membership?"

  • πŸ‘πŸ’¬Sign up and attend club events; Access to equipment to use on trips; Discounts at outdoor stores accross Adelaide; Discounted indoor climbing on VRC Tuesdays!


πŸ‘β”"Can I/my friend come to indoor climbing without being a member?"

  • πŸ‘πŸ’¬Yes, it is a public gym and of course anyone is welcome to come along and climb with us without being an AUMC member. However, if you are not a member, you will not get the discount and you will have to hire a harness/shoes from the gym, as our gear is for members only.

πŸ‘β”"What are some ongoing activities the club runs?"

  • πŸ‘πŸ’¬ Every Tuesday: indoor climbing at Vertical Reality Climbing (VRC), from 6pm
  • πŸ‘πŸ’¬Every Friday: Slacklining on Barr Smith Lawns, from 2pm

πŸ‘β”"Sounds so fun! But I don't have much experience with hiking/climbing/kayaking...."

  • πŸ‘πŸ’¬ Don't worry! The club often runs beginner-friendly trips such as day walks around Adelaide, beginner outdoor rock climbing, etc. For climbing, we encourage you to attend VRC Tuesdays
