Join Steve in a guided bushwalk designed for keen walkers to relax, refresh and connect with nature in walks that visit the Blackall Range, Conondale Range and Glasshouse Mountains on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.


Walk along cool trails under sub-tropical rainforest canopy and open giant Eucalypt forests, home of the koala and some of the 304 species of birds found in the region.


Steve will safely take you on a sensory experience in a natural world of sights, sounds and smells.


Walking slowly and quietly gives the best opportunity to observe wildlife in their natural habitat.  Walk along trails that have been used for thousands of years by the Aboriginal people, the first bushwalkers. Some of the walks are in areas that are culturally significant and must be respected.
