Trail Hiking Australia provides a ‘hike at your own risk’ platform. My website is simply a platform to gather outdoor enthusiasts together. I do not provide a professional guide service. The hosts who are hiking with you may or may not have CPR or first aid abilities. They also are not required to have a first aid kit on them. They are not actual ‘guides’ but are simply creating a meeting point for you all to gather. All a host is promising by posting a hike in the Trail Hiking Australia calendar is that they will be there at the meeting time and help everyone gather. They will also make every effort to lead and will keep the group hiking together. By joining a hike you automatically accept that you have read and agree to the waiver. Not reading this document does not excuse you from agreeing to the personal liability terms of our waiver.
