Green Trails Overnight Pack Carry Hikes

Have you heard of Meetup.com? Meetup is a platform for finding and building local communities. People use Meetup to meet new people, learn new things, find support, get out of their comfort zones, and pursue their passions, together.

Here at Green Trails Australia, we use Meetup.com to allow people to test the hiking gear and/or camping gear that they’ve just bought off us via our website or in our shop. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet fellow pack carry hikers, chat about the gear they use and get some real world feedback on either products that they’ve bought through us, or products they’ve purchased elsewhere.

Our overnight pack carry hiking events range from easy walks to very challenging treks. We’ve hosted over 50 events from distances of 15km to 265km over 16 days. Our events are free to join (unless otherwise specified), and they are all about the hike, getting outdoors, and getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

If you’re more into day hikes, check out our Green Trails Day Hikes Meetup Group. Both of our groups are private, meaning that you’ll need to sign up to be a member to see who’s going, and to see the meetup location and other important information.
