Hiking in Hong Kong by Ken and Jenny Staib, and Bob McKercher

When people think of Hong Kong they think of shopping, food and crowds. However there is another side to Hong Kong, that of Country Parks and hiking trails. In fact 75% of Hong Kong is green with 38% Country Parks with over 2,000 km of spectacular hiking trails. From the long distance trails (Hong Kong Trail 50km, Lantau Island Trail 70km, Maclehose Trail 100km) to numerous shorter trails. Ken & Jenny lived in Hong Kong from 2001 to 2005 and organised monthly hikes for the  Hong Kong Australian Association. Bob has just returned from 22 years of living (and hiking) in Hong Kong. All three of us would love to share our hiking experiences and favourite hikes with you. Meeting Check In. Club meetings are open to all fullly vaccinated members.  You must show proof of Covid-19 vaccination or evidence of medical contraindication.  The Check In QR code will be used for contact tracing, if necessary.  This is a Queensland Government requirement. BBW is covered by an approved industry Covid Safe plan and we are operating in compliance with the public health directions. 

Please join us at Newmarket Memorial Hall, corner of Enoggera Road and Ashgrove Avenue, Newmarket (Map).
