What we're about

A hiking group for all outdoor adventurers.

This group is dedicated to building a community that supports getting people outdoors and into our natural environment.

The variety of activities that we host aim to make our wild more accessible and will showcase much of Queensland and sometimes beyond. While a proportion of our events will cater to the moderate to experienced hiker, others will be slower paced on easier terrain and will include a handful of urban walks.

Everyone is welcome so please join us.

To help you get ready for hiking and broaden your knowledge of the outdoors we have prepared a heap of helpful articles and amazing trails (2500+) at www.trailhiking.com.au (https://www.trailhiking.com.au/)

While setting up your member profile, please ensure that your profile pic clearly shows your face as this is a membership requirement.

Please help share the love and join us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/trailhiking)

Hiking provides a range of benefits including; increasing general fitness, reducing stress, anxiety and depression, trauma rehabilitation, weight loss, heart disease prevention, decreasing cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, improving mental well-being, creating social connections, appreciation for the environment and a range of both tangible physical and mental benefits.

This group is proudly supported by Adventure Advocates Ltd (https://www.adventureadvocates.org.au), a not-for-profit charity.

Toohey Forest to Mt Gravatt Lookout and back

Toohey Picnic Area

Casual and easy walk from Toohey Forest to Mt Gravatt. There are different ways connecting these two places, we may do a bit of variation each time. If we are lucky we might spot a Koala! I've see one twice. What to bring? Food, water, sunscreen, insect repellent, your big friendly smile and gold coin donation. About the Area: The forest is named after James Toohey, an Irishman made wealthy in the California gold rush. He selected these lands in 1872 and his family held the forests until Brisbane City Council gradually acquired them after 1945. Mt Gravatt is named after Lt. George Gravatt who was in charge of the Moreton Bay Penal settlement at Brisbane Town in 1842. Toohey Mountain and Mt Gravatt are made of tough, very old quartzite formed 380 million years ago when the coastline was far to the west and the region was deep under ocean. Within the cutting along Outlook Drive at Mt Gravatt, you can see the tightly folded bands of quartzite – an indication of the enormous forces that shaped the ancient ocean floor sediments, and resulting mountains.
