Hiking Meal Planner

Quick oats for breakfast, crackers and cheese for lunch, and freeze dried meals for dinner – now that’s a good outdoors menu but, not for days in a row. It’s not that hard, and certainly not expensive, to create a tasty, easy, nutritious, diverse menu for any length hiking trip. Grab a copy of my FREE Hiking Meal Planner few a ideas.

Hiking Guides Australia

Hiking Guides

There are now five guides in the series covering everything from beginner basics through to skills, safety, navigation techniques and hiking gear.


Ideally, unless you are an ultralight hiker, pack weight should be between 13-15 kg + around 0.5 kg of food per day depending on your build, metabolism, climate and terrain.

Trail Hiking Australia is not a commercial initiative. I have personally designed, funded and developed this website and eBooks for you. Any support you can offer is greatly appreciated. I would also love to receive new hiking trails, tips, articles or financial donations; all which will help further develop these tools for you.
