Have Your Say: Hiking in WA survey

Update: Sorry, this survey closed 23 July. Thank you to the many who responded. Your input will be valuable in understanding the needs of WA’s hikers.

HikeWest is currently (June 2023) conducting a short survey to learn more about the experiences and preferences of ‘hikers’ – that is, anyone who walks in nature, hikes, bushwalks or trail-runs.

We’d like to understand what is important to you when you go hiking so we can advocate for better hiking opportunities in WA – based on your needs. We’re keen to know where you like to hike, what types of trails and hiking experiences appeal to you, and what makes hiking enjoyable for you.

HikeWest is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that represents the interests of all hikers in WA. By understanding your preferences, we can work to improve the quality of hiking experiences in WA.

This short, confidential survey only takes a few minutes. Thank you!  Your input is greatly appreciated.

Complete the survey here.

Providing your personal details is optional. If you do choose to leave your details, they will not be disclosed to any other party and you will go into the draw to win one of three great prizes.
