Next Meetup

Larapinta Trail - one of the top 20 treks in the world
Debbie, Carolyn and Michelle hiked 14 days on this spectacular 223km trail carrying all their gear. Come along and hear about their fantastic journey on this trail and all about the planning - what gear to take, organising food drops etc. Larapinta trail is situated in Tjoritja / West MacDonnell National Park, in the red centre of Australia, it runs from Alice Springs (eastern end) to Mount Sonder (western end). The trail is divided into 12 sections and can be walked in either direction. Each section can be done in one day, but many people choose to take a few days longer as there are so many highlights. The trail includes some of the world's most ancient metamorphic and igneous rock and nearly 600 species of rare flora. There are links to other walking tracks in the West MacDonnell National Park, so you can take side trips to explore further. Each section has vehicle access, some 4WD only, providing many options for supported walkers, or joining and leaving the trail. Where /Time: 7pm - Headland Buderim Croquet Club, Syd Lingard Drive, Buderim. Drive past the Headland Bowls Club and a short distance up the road on the right is the Croquet Club. Cost: $2 contribution per person will be collected at the beginning of the meeting to help cover registration on the Meetup website and sundry costs Look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 9 Oct.

    What we're about

    Hiking, Bushwalking, Trekking and being out in nature is good for the soul

    Beginners, intermediate and experienced trekkers are all welcome, and if you have never been hiking before, come and join us for lots of great information about how to get started.

    If you are not a hiker you are still welcome to come along and share the journey of some of the incredible places members have been.

    Come along to share in the experiences of trekkers who have hiked in Australia and all over the world

    Here are some of the things this Information Sharing Group will be doing:

    • Sharing our hiking experiences, from short single-day bushwalks to multi-day hikes

    • Talking about our favourite trails, including some hidden gems and those on our to-do list

    • Sharing tips and hints about how to train for a trek, what to pack, what boots to buy and many more ideas;

    and of course

    • Meeting fellow trekkers and maybe planning some future adventures together

    To help plan some interesting and informative presentations I have created some Profile Questions. It would be great if you could complete them.

    I how have a Website / Blog - check it out and would love it if you subscribe to receive blog posts.

    • Here is a link to my Trekkingjan Facebook page where you will find lots of information about hiking

    I am sure this group will inspire you to lace up your boots and hit the trails.
