Old AUMC magazines

[Hello! This page is still under construction :)]

Welcome to the AUMC archive – get ready to take a deep dive. Did you know that the Adelaide University Mountain Club was established in 1961? We’ve been around a while! Throughout the 70s-90s, the AUMC had an (ir)regular publication called Chunder (also Long Reach & Wild Life) containing interesting stories from trips, a whole lot of pictures, and never-ending mountain club shenanigans. Have a look through some of the old mags and see what we used to get up to back in the day…not much has changed!

[Clicking on the embedded links below will take you to the digitised PDF of that magazine]


We are still missing heaps of copies from the 60s and 70s. If you know of their whereabouts (physical and/or scanned copies), do get in contact with us. Email: info@nullaumc.asn.au


We are planning to release a new issue of Chunder early next year (2024) and we want everyone to contribute something big or small to fill the pages. Funny stories, photos, trip reports, guides, how-tos and how-nots, tips and advice, puzzles, riddles, scary campfire stories…anything fun and interesting from anyone that has been involved in the club over the years. Have a flick through the old editions of Chunder below for inspo, you’ll find plenty.

Submit whatever you like here. Word vomit is acceptable.
