What we're about

Walking has a huge impact on your mental health and happiness. Fresh air. Nature. Community. Mindfulness. The list goes on! We love taking The Yes Project community members on group hikes and family friendly walks around Brisbane and South East Queensland.

Everyone is welcome on a YES WALK! You don't need to register, just show up and join us. Don't have anyone to walk with? That's what we're here for! It's fine if you're walking solo - there's always someone to chat with in our group. Know someone who could benefit from a walk? Bring them with you!

Sometimes our walks draw large crowds and other times it is just a small group of us hiking somewhere incredible. We run walks for all different fitness levels and details will be posted here and on our Facebook or Instagram pages with further details. Most of our walkers are in their 20s 30s and 40s. Some people bring their kids if the walk is suitable. Other times it's adults only.

ABOUT THE YES PROJECT
We all know someone who is feeling lonely. Going through a tough time. Struggling with their mental health. Maybe it's your friend, family member, neighbour, work colleague. Or perhaps it's you. The mission for our not-for-profit organisation is to help people feel good again. By encouraging people to just say YES - particularly when it feels like all you want to do is say no.

Everyone is welcome in our community. Whether mental health is an ongoing struggle for you, you're just having a bad week or you want to be a part of something meaningful. And if you know someone who isn't doing so great, take their hand and join a project together. It could be the most important thing you do today.

YES WALK - TOOHEY FOREST, BRISBANE

Mt Gravatt Lookout

It’s another Yes Walk! Come and join us on our next Brissy walk through Toohey Forest and up to Mt Gravatt Mountain. Put Saturday November 17th in your calendar! It’s a sunrise hike and now that the weather is warming up a little, we’ll be headed out for a 6am start! We have mapped out the trail and you’re going to love it! 8km starting at the top of Mt Gravatt at the lookout. Wander down through Toohey Forest, around both Griffith University campuses, under the M1 motorway and finish back up at the top of the mountain to take in the city views over brekkie or a coffee at the The Love Well Project cafe! Waking up the mountain itself takes only around 15 mins and a lot of the remainder of the walk is flat. It does take some extra mind over matter to walk back up Mt Gravatt at the end of the 8kms but most moderate fitness levels should be fine. Ok for kids with stamina too and pet friendly! We love taking people walking on our fave trails across the region - all in the name of improving our mental health. Sunrise walks are the BEST! Yep ... tricky to get out of bed and get there but so worth it! See you at 5:45am for a 6am start! All done by 8am so plenty of time before weekend commitments kick into gear. JUST SAY YES! :)
