Gold Coast Bushwalking Tips

Gold Coast Hinterland

One way to spend your family holiday in Broadbeach is exploring the lush trails of the Gold Coast Hinterland nearby. No rush compares to the exhilaration of hiking through the great Australian bush! Take in the sights, scents, and rejuvenating adventures of trekking through mountain streams, dry river beds, and tree canopies. Swim for hours while cooling your refreshments in the clear water at the foot of a waterfall. You can take a guided tour or you can explore on your own.

Before you head on out bushwalking, make sure to review a few tips on how to enjoy a safe and fun time while hiking down the trails:

Plan your trip in advance.
Whenever you’re planning to go on a hiking trip, always make sure to carefully plan out the excursion especially when it involves hiking out in the vast mountains. Hikers at our Broadbeach holiday apartments should list down all the things they need on their hiking trip and also prepare the necessary tools that can help them to safely get to their destination.

Bring a map.
Be sure not to get lost. Always bring a detailed map that clearly shows the each walking trails. It is also advisable to let your close friends or relatives know when and where you’ll be hiking and tell them when you’ll be back.

Wear suitable clothing.
We often advise or guests hikers at Queensleigh Apartments to wear proper hiking clothes such as hiking boots, hat and rain gear. Make sure to use sunscreen especially when you’re hiking on the summer. During the warmer months try to wear light-weight clothing but make sure to bring along a sweater just in case the weathers turns cold.

Have an ample supply of food and water.
Hiking for several hours can be quite strenuous. To keep you energized and hydrated, make sure to pack healthy snacks as well as plenty of water. If you’re planning to stay for the night, bring foods that can be easily cooked like soups or canned foods.

First aid kit is a must have.
You’ll never know what might get when you’re on the great outdoors. Scrapes, bumps, bruises and blisters are quite common when bushwalking. That is why we often remind our hikers at our beachfront apartments Broadbeach to always pack a first aid kit that includes band-aids, bandages, antiseptic ointments, and insect repellant to help you  just in case. 

Be mindful of nature.
Don’t throw any rubbish when your out hiking. Make sure that you’ll take all your trash with you when you get back. Be very cautious when starting camp fires and check local bushfire warnings in certain areas to avoid fatal hazards.
