Welcome to Hiking Scenery

“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.”

How to use my blog

I built this blog to help inspire your next hike, particularly if you are in South-Eastern Australia or New Zealand’s South Island. You might like to do the following…

Browse through a list of featured walks. These generally have the best scenery.

Read my hiking ‘best-of’ compilations.

Browse through lists of my walks by region.

Look through photos of the landscapes and wildlife in the main regions I’ve done my walking. You can then pick a spot for your next hiking holiday.

Use my clickable maps to find a walk near you. Featured walks (generally better scenery) have gold icons. Click on the icons to view the walk details and access trip reports.
