Gold Coast Hinterland
The Gold Coast Hinterland is a destination of choice for many international travellers because of its lush and varied rainforests, waterfalls and easy accessibility. It contains some of the best preserved heritage-listed rainforest in the world and is nestled right in behind the beautiful golden beaches of the Gold Coast. With so many amazing national parks located so closely together, it provides almost endless opportunities for trailrunning and exploring. Solesearcher Adventures offers a variety of single or multi-day trail activities which will refresh your soul and invigorate your senses.
The Scenic Rim almost surrounds Brisbane from the top end of the Gold Coast hinterland and out west to the Great Dividing Range. This vast area is home to six additional stunning National Parks. These environmentally diverse places to explore are Mt Barney, Main Range, Moogerah Peaks, Tamborine, Lamington and Mount Chinghee. With their inspiring natural beauty and rugged mountain ranges, it is super easy to see why these National Parks are called the Scenic Rim.
Sunshine Coast Hinterland
The Sunshine Coast Hinterland is just one more spectacular reason why Queensland is a bucket-list holiday destination. On the trails of the stunning Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walks and other tracks you’ll see amazing waterfalls, breathtaking gorges and tranquil rock pools. You will also witness the flora transform from warm subtropical rainforest to tall open eucalypt forest as you make your way through the three beautiful and protected national parks—Kondalilla, Mapleton Falls and Mapleton.

Tropical North Queensland
There is something about the tropics that makes us go troppo. At least it sort of seems that way. Running along the trails in lush tropical rainforests, hearing all the songs of the exotic birds and the bubbling of flowing waterways is certainly enchanting. On our tropical north Queensland trailrunning retreats we explore the world-heritage listed Daintree National Park, the truly amazing Atherton Tablelands, Whitsunday Great Walk and other hinterland areas. Then of course there is the endless coastline. Ask us today about what we are planning next for a tropical north Queensland getaway.
Italy is by all accounts one of our favourite places to explore. It is a nation steeped in history, diverse in cutlure, rich in music, renowned for food and boasts some of the most inspiring landscapes of any place on earth. Let us show you just a little piece of the unbelievably imposing Dolomite mountains in northern Italy – right up against the border of Austria. You could be forgiven for thinking you were not in Italy because the people speak German and live in houses that look Austrian. Anyway, the mountains though! So good. Talks to us today about booking one of the limited spaces we have for our next Dolomites trip. Oh, they will sell out quickly, so you’d better hurry!
France is one of those places in the world that seems to captivate the attention of all the romantics. It also gets a lot of attention from cyclists, foodies, skiers, wine-lovers and film buffs. However, here at Solesearcher Adventures we think it should get just as much attention from trailrunners. Not only is France home to one of the world’s premier trail races, the epic Ultra Trail Mont Blanc, but it has plenty of other places to chase your dreams on mountainsides and through beautiful forests. One really, really cool part about France is that it shares borders with 11 other countries. So you can literally start out trailrunning in France and end up in Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and so on. How good is that? Let us take you on the trip of a lifetime across sensational sections of the Pyrenees Mountains from France into Spain traversing portions of both the iconic GR10 and GR11 routes. You’d better pack for all seasons! Ask us today about the next available epic Solesearcher Adventure.
