Safety Policy

We value the safety of all of our hikers, volunteers, and employees. Our hike leaders carry first aid kits, CB radios, and personal locator beacons with us on our hiking events for your safety. We have the following safety guidelines for all hikers with us.

Always keep your hike leader in your sight

Stay on the cleared and marked trail at all times

In the event that you come across any dangerous animal on your tour ( such as snakes, or wildlife obstructing your hiking path) please stop and slowly walk away from danger, alerting your hike leader and fellow hikers. The hike leader will give you further instructions.

All hikers should understand the fitness requirements of their chosen tour prior to booking, and by purchasing your ticket, you agree to and understand our waiver.

If you are attending a dog friendly hike, your dog must be on a lead at all times for the safety of other hikers and the public.

You are responsible for the health and safety of any minor who attends a tour in your presence.

The Hike Collective acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this nation. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which we hike. We pay our respects to ancestors and Elders, past and present. The Hike Collective is committed to honouring Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich contribution to society.
