Upcoming Hikes

Picnic Point

Sunday, 16 June 2024, 8.00am - 10.30am

Picnic Point to McKnight to Barry Griffiths

Want to come on an adventure? There’s news of a new track that links with Picnic Point, so who wants to come and see if we can find it?

It should be about 6 – 8 km long and should not take more than 2.5 hours. I can’t tell you how hard the terrain is, but it’s Toowoomba, how hard can it be!!

Sunday 23 June 2024, 8.30am

Old Favourite - Picnic Point

We have over 2,000 people in this group now, most are just watching and waiting – well now is your time!

If you have never been on a hike before and want to give it a try this one is for you (it’s FREE for first time hikers). If you’ve been on lots of hikes you can still come too, I need you to show new people that we are ‘normal’!

Glen Lomond

Sunday 30 June, 8 - 10.00am

Glen Lomond

This is a great winter walk. It’s just stunning if it is a crisp dry day and the views go for miles.

We’ve done the far end of Glen Lomond recently, but this time we are going right back to the beginning at Burraway Court.

We’ve got two options for this hike a one-hour easy hike or two-hour moderate option.

Pechey Forest

Sunday 7 July 8.30 - 10.30am

Pechey Forest

Kerri Seccombe who some of you may know, she used to manage the Visitor Information Centre at Hampton and is now the Adventure Whiz at ICON Adventures, is the local expert who will lead the way on this hike.

Main Range NP

Sunday 14 July, 7.30am - 4.00pm

Cascade Circuit, Main Range NP

This moderately challenging hike is one of our all-time favourites. The track meanders through lush rainforest and along the upper reaches of Dalrymple Creek.  Graded Level 3.

Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy your day out with the group. Car pool option for those leaving from Toowoomba.

Table Top from Picnic Point

Sunday 21 July, 8 - 9.30am

Tabletop Mountain

Not so much a hike and more like a scramble to the summit (and back).  There are many large and small rocks large along the trail and is not recommended for beginners. Allow a little extra time at the end for a cuppa and cake at the cafe as a reward.
