EmpowHER Hiking Program

Women hiking as part of the EmpowHER hiking program

The EmpowHER Hiking Program is about empowering women and girls to explore the spectacular natural surrounds of the Scenic Rim whilst building confidence, fitness and participation in hiking.

The program offers regular guided hiking opportunities that will connect like-minded females and provide them with the skills they need to be physically active and embark on their own hiking adventures.

The EmpowHER Hiking Program is proudly delivered by our program partners O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat, Mt Barney Lodge and ParkTours.

The EmpowHER Hiking program is a new initiative that has never before been provided. Guided hikes are offered at subsidised cost for participants thanks to funding provided by the Queensland Government ActiveKIT program.

The ActiveKit initiative is a new funding program that is supporting the Active Industry (sport, active recreation and fitness industries). This project is jointly funded by Queensland Government, Health and Wellbeing Queensland and Scenic Rim Regional Council.
