Rainbow Beach - Bymien to Freshwater

Description

By far our favorite hike…which is why we do it so much! :)

We start at Outdoor Adventure Australia home base. Here we unwind you from the Monday to Friday while we all go through gear checks and talk about what to expect for the next two days.

We then spend a couple of hours transporting everyone to the start point of the hike at beautiful Rainbow Beach.

Carrying all you need for 2 days and 1 night in the bush, you’ll hike through rain forest, past lakes and arrive at a beach side bush campground where you’ll eat, sleep and play for almost 24 hours before heading back to civilisation.

We provide everything you need except your clothes and toothbrush!

If you want overnight hiking with experienced guides or if you're considering going alone one day, this trip is for you!

Sunshine Coast - Gheerulla Loop

Description

The valleys are deep and the small creeks are swallowed by the dense foliage of the rain forest. 

Experience being surrounded by dense forest for an entire weekend. Walking through rain forest to the sound of the Bellbird is something that we simply can’t get enough of. The energizing and organic sights, sounds and smells accompany you through day and night. Leaving you tired but fulfilled and full of stories and wanderlust.

The often challenging environment makes this particular hike a really good preparatory hike for our bigger hikes because the needs of the hiker are quite diverse over its duration.

  • Gheerulla Falls
