Always wanted to tackle the summit of Mt Barney?  Join us on a weekend of hiking, exploration, campfire laughs, great food and new friends.

Mt Barney Summit is well known as a challenging yet beautiful hike with stunning views across the McPherson Range and Mt Barney National Park.   A full day hike taking on average 8 hours to complete, the 17.5km hike climbs up to 1395metres, walking through some diverse landscapes and at times rocky slopes.  Not recommended to tackle alone, why not join us for an all-inclusive weekend to experience this beauty.

We’ll be ready and waiting to greet you on Friday afternoon with the camp all set up with your own tent awaiting your arrival, campfire dinner on the go and a relaxing beverage whilst you wind down at the end of the busy week.

Early to bed, early to rise and off we go!  Your experienced local guides will share the beauty and challenges with you on this hike up the South-East Ridge of Mt Barney and descending via Peasants trail. We’ll provide you with your packed lunch and some snacks for the day. All you need to do is watch your step and enjoy the views!

As you arrive back into camp, we’ll have a hot shower ready and waiting, a warm campfire to enjoy and delicious food to replenish after your day of exploration.  A night to sit back, revel in your accomplishment and enjoy great company under the starry skies.

The next morning after a big cooked breakfast under the shade of the Eucalypts we’ll say goodbye for now.

Be sure to check out some of the great things in the region before you head home.  You can stop off on your way at the Rathdowney Pub for lunch, enjoy some the shorter, less challenging hikes in the area or even go visit some camels nearby.

We look forward to sharing more of the Scenic Rim and Mt Barney National Park with you.

Come join us as we support the local communities of the Scenic Rim whilst enjoying the beauty of Mt Barney National Park and a weekend of new friends.
