hiking trips canada

This is a guest post by Campbell and Alya of Stingy Nomads.

It’s no secret that Canada offers some spectacular landscapes for hiking. The second largest country in the world is covered by more than 40% forest, surrounded by the world’s longest coastline, and home to one of the greatest mountain ranges in the world, the Canadian Rockies.

ku ring gai national park

More than a little overshadowed by the Blue Mountains and the Royal, Ku-ring-gai is another national park just outside of Sydney that NO ONE ever seems to talk about.

Sure, maybe it’s a little bit smaller, and slightly less dramatic than its counterparts… but Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park boasts bushwalks, rainforests, mangroves, Aboriginal sites, and beaches galore.

deep pass canyon

I don’t know what or why it is, but for the past year I’ve had such terrible luck with weather on most of the weekend trips I had planned. Like, terrible to the point that I ended up pulling out of a few of them at the last minute due to a very-depressing weather forecast – including my own birthday camping trip last year!

warrumbungle national park

If you’re into stargazing and mountain adventures without any tourists around, boy do I have the perfect Sydney weekend getaway for you!

The Warrumbungles probably aren’t going to make it onto any visitor’s Australia bucket list, but that only makes it better for locals who do have the time and inclination to schlep out to bumble*ck New South Wales for a semi-private hit of nature.
