About Tropical Treks Guided Bush Walks and Tours
Steve invites you to slow the pace down and absorb the wonders of this region. You will discover wild life, endemic plants & animals, the little beauties in Nature so often overlooked. Notice your senses fine-tuning to the scintillating calls of the Bell Miner , scent of a Eucalypt forest, texture of the earth underfoot or a rough Bunya pine tree, see a shy red-legged pademelon under a rainforest canopy or a water dragon scurrying to a creek.
To complete the Hinterland experience we visit picturesque country towns, meet friendly and delightful residents, discover historical sites and hidden treasures of the region.
Kick-start your holiday with our fun, informative bushwalks through this stunning natural region, one of Australia's hidden treasure.
Tropical Treks acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the region we visit and pay respect to Elders past and present.
Owner/Guide Steve Grainger is passionate about Australia and the Bush. He has trekked on roads less traveled through Nepal, Turkey, Middle East, Europe, Tasmania, North Queensland and many other parts of the world. As a Savannah Guide, World Heritage Wet Tropics Guide and bushwalker, he shares his experience and knowledge in Tropical Treks Adventures. Small numbers ensures you observe native wildlife unobtrusively and minimize impact on delicate vegetation and animals.
Whether you call it bushwalking, hiking, tramping, trekking, hill-walking or rambling the activity is the same throughout the world. Employing the principles of ‘slow-tourism,’ the practice of providing a sensory experience while walking slowly over the land, you are able to immerse in the flora, fauna and landscapes of this remarkable region. Some bushwalks are through areas significant to the Aboriginal people and must be respected. Steve’s aim is to awaken your senses, to re-connect with Nature and to come away with an appreciation of the Bush and a sense of guardianship; to protect and conserve this great land of ours.
