A super popular destination for bushwalkers and campers, Mount Barney is the one of the highest mountains in Queensland and is often said to be one of the most impressive parts of the Scenic Rim. So it comes as no surprise that avid adventurer and photographer, Jack Hughes, was keen to explore this rugged, beautiful part of Australia.

Combining rough, rugged open landscapes and challenging mountainous walking trails, Mount Barney National Park offers explorers wanderlust inspiration worthy of giving up your day job for!

Jack chose the Wild Rhino Tyle boots to accompany him on this adventure. And a great choice it was too!

Hand-crafted from burnished leather this sturdy European leather boot boasts immense amounts of character and texture. With contrast stitching and a cool contrast heel cap, our Tyler boot is a wardrobe essential for the cool casual styling fans. With a solid outsole and a rough around the edges charm, this boot is sure to take you places.

Perfect for a wilderness wander!

We caught up with Jack to hear about his travels, his passion for photography and his love of great shoes!

What has influenced you to be passionate about travel and adventure?

I’ve always been inspired by the natural beauty of the world around us. Getting out of the daily 9-5 grind and exploring what nature has to offer is what got me so passionate about photography. Photography gives me a chance to share how I see this beautiful world with others! It is a way to break free from the ordinary and to see the magic around us!

Out of all the places you’ve visited, where has been your favourite location and why?

Visiting Great Ocean Road and specifically The Razorback Lookout at sunrise is one of my best memories of travelling. After getting out early on a freezing cold winters morning I was rewarded with the most breathtaking sunrise I have ever seen.

It’s easy to forget sometimes how beautiful your own backyard is and that you don’t have to search high and low for breathtaking places. You just have to look around you.

What do you love most about your Wild Rhino shoes?

Since teaming up with Wild Rhino in June this year I haven’t looked back! Wild Rhino shoes are the perfect balance of comfort and style and exactly what I need whether I’m at work or out exploring what’s around me!

 

So what are you waiting for? Lace up and explore!
