How difficult are your day hikes?
Our weekend hikes vary in difficulty. Most of our weekend hikes require some level of experience in terms of ability to ascend and descend slopes as well as being able to hike for approximately 6 hours.
What types of equipment do I need for the weekend day hikes?
Proper hiking boots are necessary. These boots are generally "high ankle" cut which gives good stability and are "Goretex" water resistant. With regards to sizing, it is always better to choose a size which is slightly bigger for your feet. This is because for long hikes, your feet may swell slightly. Thick woollen socks are preferred. Ensure you try the boots on before purchasing online. A good back pack is also important. This should be at least 30L in size to hold spare clothes, food and plenty of drinking water. We also recommend to purchase a pair of hiking poles. Wet weather clothing, water bladder/bottle, basic first aid kit, sunscreen and insect repellant.
There are numerous hiking/camping shops you can visit in Sydney CBD to purchase these equipment.
What types of equipment do I need for the overnight/multi-day hikes?
You will essentially need all the items listed for the day hikes as well as tents, sleeping bags, head torch and enough clothing.
