The Nomads Outdoors Group


The Nomads is a social outdoors group for gay and gay-friendly men of all ages. It also welcomes those from the lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities, and anyone who shares its objectives of tolerance and acceptance.

For 35 years we have run regular outdoor recreational activities including bushwalking, cycling, canoeing, skiing and social events.

The Nomads is based in Melbourne, Australia. Visitors are very welcome to join us on any of our events.

The activities of The Nomads cover a broad spectrum, with a strong outdoor influence.  Examples include:

  • Day walks through locations in Melbourne and country Victoria
  • Bushwalking ranging from day walks to overnight back-pack to one or more weeks
  • Base camping
  • Bike rides over a single day or a weekend
  • Cross country skiing and snow camping
  • Canoeing, kayaking and white water rafting
  • Day and weekend naturist events
  • Cultural activities including movie nights, theatre and musicals
  • Social activities such as restaurant nights, Christmas parties and barbecues
