Tropical Treks Guided Bushwalks

Noosaville, Noosa Area

Tropical Treks Guided Bushwalks are specialists in small group, personalised guided bush walks and birdwatching and wildlife tours in the Sunshine Coast and Noosa Hinterland region offering half-day and full day adventures. Passionate and dedicated to the preservation of wild places of Australia, Owner, Guide and Naturalist Steve Grainger provides interpretive sensory experiences while driving and walking through some of the most beautiful forests and National parks along Australia's Nature Coast.

Designed to showcase the region’s landscape, flora, fauna, history and culture, their walks are interactive, fun and informative. Follow in the steps of the Aboriginal Australians, the first bush-walkers. Retrace the trails of the Explorers, Pioneers and Timber-getters who transformed the land for farming and provide resources for an expanding world. Unique landscapes in each walk will raise discussions on how the mountains were formed; why the rainforest exists; how it is interconnected with our lives today.

It is their mission to leave the guest with an appreciation of the Bush and a sense of guardianship to protect and conserve this remarkable region of theirs.

The  Bushwalkers'  Adventure - Full Day

Join Steve in The Bushwalk Adventure designed for walkers to relax and enjoy views, photography and connect with Nature in the Blackall and Conondale Ranges of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. You will discover remote waterfalls, streams and mountain tops that few have seen. Walk along cool trails, under the Sub-Tropical rainforest canopy and open giant Eucalpyt forests (the home of the koala).

Steve will take you in safety on a sensory experience in a natural world of sights, sounds and smells. Walking slowly and quietly gives us the best opportunity to observe wildlife in natural habitat. The area is significant to the Aboriginal people and must be respected.

Cook Island Dive Site

Gold Coast, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
Cook Island, a short boat trip from the Gold Coast, is an accessible and appealing dive site for all experience levels. Hard and soft corals cover the bottom in some areas, with boulders forming walls and caves descending to the sandy sea floor in others.

Snapper Rocks

Coolangatta, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
Snapper Rocks is a small rocky outcrop on the northern side of Point Danger at the southern end of Rainbow Bay on the Gold Coast. Snapper is a point break which forms the first part of the man-made Superbank which extends from Snapper Rocks Point, through Rainbow Bay, Greenmount Point, Coolangatta Beach, and Kirra, for a distance of around two kilometres.

Nine Mile Reef Dive Site

Coolangatta, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
Nine Mile Reef, off Tweed Heads, has a reputation among locals as being a "sharky" spot. All year long, wobbegongs, blind sharks, and bronze whalers call the reef home, with leopard sharks in summer, grey nurse sharks in winter, and occasional hammerheads and whale sharks popping by.

Kirra Reef Dive Site

Kirra Beach, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
Not far from Kirra Beach, one of the Gold Coast's top surfing destinations, is one of its most mysterious dive sites: the Kirra Reef. Consisting of scattered rocky outcrops covered in kelp fronds, there are scores of hidden gems throughout the reef.

Coolangatta

Coolangatta, Gold Coast Area
The southern Gold Coast's famous sandy beaches and world-class surf breaks conclude at Coolangatta, renowned for its casual beach-side culture. Spend the day surfing, SUP or swimming with the locals at Coolangatta, Greenmount, Duranbah, Palm Beach and into southern Rainbow Bay.

Currumbin Waters

Currumbin Waters, Gold Coast Area
Currumbin is an inspiring beachfront community where the epic Currumbin Creek waterway links to the pristine rainforest mountains of the region when heading west. Currumbin Creek and the Alley, the entrance to the ocean, offer a protected and patrolled haven for all kinds of active water sports, particularly stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking.

Currumbin Valley

Currumbin Valley, Gold Coast Area
Heading into the Currumbin Valley is a little like entering an Aladdin's Cave of adventure. From the coastline, head southwest into another world along Currumbin Creek Road which leads to Tomewin Mountain Road winding up to Tomewin Mountain.

Tugun

Tugun, Gold Coast Area
Just when you thought the Gold Coast couldn't get any more relaxed you arrive over the hill and into Tugun. This southern Gold Coast suburb is so laid-back that locals fondly call her Tugz (pronounced choog-s) while ancient Aborigines referred to Tugun as a place of "breaking waves".

Kirra

Kirra Beach, Gold Coast Area
There's variations on what the word Kirra actually means, but some believe Queensland Aborigines named it after a boomerang. Which makes sense as Kirra wraps evocatively around the bend separating Coolangatta and Kirra beaches and in front of Kirra Hill.
