On Two Feet

Aug 09, 2021

There’s no denying walking pace lends itself to relaxation, a heightened sense of connection to place and keen observations, perhaps unavailable if you were exploring by any other means. Walking improves our wellness by improving concentration, increasing your levels of vitamin D and decreasing stress levels, so get out there On Two Feet and put a little spring in your step.

Spicers Peak Lodge

The jewel in the crown of Spicers Peak Lodge’s nature-based eco offerings is the 50km Scenic Rim Trail, the only Queensland Great Walks of Australia, and easily accessible from Brisbane. Explore rarely seen parts of Queensland High Country with a small group of like-minded travellers with an all-inclusive walking adventure, led by knowledgeable guides. Walk along the Great Dividing Range, through World Heritage Listed Gondwana Rainforest and see native fauna and flora in all its splendour.
