Scenic Rim EmpowHER hikes


It’s never been easier for women and girls to explore one of the best regions in the world, thanks to the Scenic Rim EmpowHER Hiking Program.

Bookings are available on hikes across the Scenic Rim, from February to June 2022, to help local women and girls get active, learn essential bushwalking skills and boost their confidence in the outdoors.

The program is possible due to funding from the Queensland Government through the ActiveKIT initiative which directed a grant to the Scenic Rim Regional Council All of the planned hikes have a co-payment of $15.


The EmpowHER program hikes are led by three leading providers in outdoor activity in South-East Queensland: ParkTours, Mt Barney Lodge and O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat.

The hikes will be led by experienced and qualified guides, exploring some of Australia’s most stunning scenery in the Gondwana World Heritage-listed National Parks. The program’s goal is to empower women to get outdoors more often by providing hiking opportunities at a fitness level they are comfortable with, and to educate on hiking skills to enable them to continue with outdoor adventure once the program concludes.

This program is open to South-East Queensland locals, as well as visitors who are in the area. ParkTours is offering a range of hikes suited to all experience levels. If you are just starting your journey in the outdoors, we have easy and moderate options, and for those who want to push themselves we have included some of the longer and more challenging hikes in Lamington National Park.
