Perhaps it is the sight of nature'​s loveliness ​unspoiled ​by the "Advance ​of Civilization" -- the colour and shape and perfume of the trees and shrubs and the wild bush flowers -- the bird life and the life of the bush animals -- all so unrestrained and bound only by the ancient and ever just laws of old mother nature.

 Possibly there is a sprinkling of all of these in our reasons for tramping about in the bush, but underlying them all is the interest in life. The life and growth of the bush, of our friends, and of ourselves. Thus the protection of nature'​s handiwork from unthinking hands. But would this protection be necessary if more realised and appreciated the beauty of bushland? Does not this point to a more zealous effort on our part to encourage others to become interested in our clubs, to join up and promote the welfare of bushwalking;​ we should take care that our constitutional rules are not exclusive but rather most inclusive. Possibly there is a sprinkling of all of these in our reasons for tramping about in the bush, but underlying them all is the interest in life.
