The First Hike Project aims to allow people from refugee backgrounds an opportunity to feel more at home in Australia and to deepen their connection to their new country by taking groups on overnight hiking and camping adventures. The project started in Perth and in 2018, it branched into 4 more cities- Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra & Brisbane. 

The next hike is planned in June 2019 and we have an enthusiastic group of willing and able volunteers doing all the groundwork to make it happen. We are planning hiking routes, forging relationships with local refugee community groups and schools, talking to gear manufacturers, and coordinating with local land management organisations.

We are raising funds here to provide gear, transport and food for our QLD hikes to ensure the best possible experience for our participants. 

We love the bush and want to share this passion and in the process provide people with the skills and know how to access this great resource on their doorstep.

We have a multitude of new friends who are keen to make Australia home and who are looking for connections. We can all help make this an Australia that embraces and gets strengthened by diversity.

Thank you in advance for your support. Please spread the word and get in touch if you have any questions.
