Our annual Running River Gorge hiking weekend for 2021 was another memorable outdoor adventure experience for two groups of hiking enthusiasts of all ages, fitness levels and capabilities, numbering over 150 for the weekend.
The weather was perfect from the time both groups gathered in Paluma and again, we were treated to what is one of the most unique and beautiful gorge hiking experiences our region has to offer.
Large group events such as these involve weeks, sometimes months of careful planning and preparation. A massive thanks to all the walk leaders and organisers who assisted in making this weekend another group highlight of the year!
