Hello hiker!

The group is registered in Australia as a club 'Happy Hikers Incorporated' registration number A0061612V.

This hiking group is for nature lovers who would rather spend their weekends in the great outdoors than in the shopping mall. It's open to fit and energetic people over the age of 18. Respect for the environment and each other, friendly, generous and open-minded are the prerequisites for membership.

The annual subscription fee of $15 is payable when you join our group and is valid for the calendar year.

As a subscriber, you can participate in all our events for the calendar year.

We do hikes of many varying levels and each one could require different skills or abilities with the ultimate goal of having a fun and enjoyable experience.

We see this meetup as that of an intermediate or lower advanced hiking group. Our idea of a great hike is one just hard enough to where the group gets a good workout, but are still able to enjoy the experience.

We consider hiking a great way to combine exercise and meet like-minded people who like a bit of a challenge over varied terrain at a good pace. The volunteer event hosts exercise utmost duty of care and responsibility towards all hikers.

How strenuous and how much you are willing to push yourself on a hike is different for everyone and one of the main reasons we try to mix up the hikes offered. As for the pace, the general rule of thumb is 4-5 kilometers an hour (slower on rough territory). While we may sometimes push the group to pick up the pace, we do like to take in the surroundings as well as enjoy the company of the great people who love a challenge!

If you like our approach to hiking, then please join us in the adventure!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
