Hiking Hit List

Winter is well and truly here, bringing fresh morning temperatures and clear blue skies to Brisbane. It’s the perfect weather to be out and about exploring our great outdoors. Dust off your hiking shoes because we’ve come up with a hit list of must-do trails in the Brisbane region to give you some inspiration.

Winter is on its way to Australia

An oldie but a goodie. If you’re a Brisbane local, you definitely know about the iconic trails at Mt Cootha. The area is located only a hop, skip and jump away from the inner city hustle and bustle and has over 70 trail options. Each varies in experience levels and distances, so there is something here for every explorer. The summit provides the most spectacular panoramic views of the South East, and a cafe up the top for a refreshing beverage once you reach the destination.

For the relaxed hiker. The Glasshouse mountains are home to 11 picturesque ranges perfect for hiking, wandering and gazing. What makes it unique is its lush rainforests adjacent to the coastline making for breathtaking views. The Wildhorse trail is one to bring the kids along due to its relatively short distance and flatter terrain.

The green behind the gold. Located in the Gold Coast Hinterland, an hour away from Brisbane, is peaceful Mt Tamborine. This location is classically known for its numerous walks and lookouts surrounded by mother nature's beauty. If you are a fan of discovering flora and fauna, this is your destination due to the abundant wildlife.

Recommended for moderate to advanced hikers, the Morelia walking track at D’Aguilar National Park trail is one not to miss. The route sweeps through a stunning eucalypt forest and ends at the Mt Nebo lookout providing incredible views of Moreton Bay. Some parts are challenging, but reaching a fantastic destination is well worth it.

Perfect weather to explore

When you head out on your next trail adventure, don’t forget your Dorcy gear! We believe every hiker should have at least one portable light in their adventure kit in case of an emergency. Here are some favourites from our range:

The Dorcy Rechargeable Headlamp has a motion sensor built-in for easy hands-free use.

This curved waterproof torch is shock-resistant, weatherproof and floating, making it the perfect tool for any outdoor activity. Its incorporated tail carabiner clip is a great addition to attach to a hiking backpack.

A step above the rest. The 2200 Lumen Rechargeable flashlight has a built-in power bank to charge up devices, plus is water and impact resistance.
