Overnight family hikes

Kids grow up so fast, make Mum’s and Dad’s weekends special and a time to make memories with your kids.  It can be just Mum and the kids or just Dad and the kids.  We provide all the trek gear and an itinerary to suit the ages and capabilities of the family.  All you need are clothes, boots/shoes, and enthusiasm.  So choose your date and take the family to a fun night around the campfire with creativity, sparkers, marshmallows, chocolate, and laughter. By doing all the planning for you and providing ultralight backpacks and camping gear, you can be assured of having a successful, safe and fun nature experience.

We provide you with an emergency communication and a first aid kit.

Trek food: we give you a checklist of ideas easily sourced from our local supermarkets.

Contact us for further information and to set up a date that suits you.
