The Trail Hiking Australia website was founded as a hobby by me, Darren Edwards, in 2015 to further the development of Australian trails and to increase the awareness of hiking as a major health benefit.
Trail Hiking Australia is not only a tool for discovering over 3000+ Australia-wide adventures, it is a site filled with tips, tricks and practical advice to help you get out there and return safely. Develop new skills, learn how to be prepared and remain safe while navigating the trail.
Find out more about hiking gear, read my latest blog posts and gear reviews, and download my awesome hiking eBooks. Contribute to the Trail Talk Forum, read trip reports, join a hike and become an active member of this fun and rewarding community.
Trail Hiking Australia is a not for profit, community initiative. Your financial support is greatly appreciated.
Trail Hiking Australia is a a hobby and non-commercial initiative that has been personally funded and developed by me, Darren Edwards. My site was launched publicly in 2015 and has quickly grown to become the leading online source of trail and hike information in Australia. My site is used by many bushwalking/hiking clubs as well as by local and international visitors to Australia.
I spend a lot of time researching and recording trails, preparing information on preparation, safety, navigation and reviewing gear so that I can improve your hiking experience. A lot of people (over 45,000 users per month) now use my site as a go-to resource for their outdoor adventures. I am expanding this site daily to bring you more great trails and I definitely can’t do that without your help.
If you are able to offer your support it would go a long way to helping out. All of the donations I receive go right back into further developing the site for you and other explorers.
