Support Trail Hiking Australia!

I love developing Trail Hiking Australia, but it isn’t cheap. Your support will help me continue to improve this valuable resource for all Aussie explorers.

I love developing Trail Hiking Australia, but it isn’t cheap. Your support will help me continue to improve this valuable resource for all Aussie explorers.

Trail Hiking Australia is not a business, but a personally funded and developed project by me, Darren Edwards. I started this website as a hobby in 2013 because I’m passionate about helping people get outdoors and into nature.

I’m excited that Trail Hiking Australia has grown to become one of Australia’s leading online sources of trail and outdoor information. It’s awesome to see so many passionate adventurers, bushwalking clubs, hiking groups, and tour operators use my website every day.

If you can, please consider donating to Trail Hiking Australia. All donations go directly back into the website’s development, so I can keep it up-to-date and informative for everyone.

Thank you for your support!

I spend heaps of time researching and recording trails, and writing articles about preparation, safety, navigation, skills, and gear to help you improve your outdoor experience. I’m thrilled that around 80,000 people use my site every month as a go-to resource for their outdoor adventures. I’m working on this website every day to bring you more great trails and hiking info, and I definitely can’t do that without your help. Thanks to all who have generously donated so far!

If you’re not able to contribute a few dollars, please consider sharing my website with your family, friends, and on social media. If you have a hike or trip report you’d like to contribute, please feel free to send them through. Joining my mailing list is also a great way to get involved. I send an email to the community around the middle of each month.

  1. Hi. I am training for the alpine walking track in early November. I am planning to do a couple of more training walks. We did monda track, black ranges forest yesterday and used your gpx download that was fantastic. I tried to use gpx tracker app to record another trail today but had no luck. Which app do you recommend to use so that I can record trails to add to the site? Cheers fiona

  2. Thank you to everyone who have graciously supported this initiative. I have put a lot of time, energy and money into building this resource and every bit of support received is very mush appreciated.
