Be inspired to think outside in Queensland National Parks!
Winter is a time of hibernation … That might be true in Australia’s southern states (aka. ‘down south’) but here in Queensland we enjoy some of our best weather during winter.
‘In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.’ John Muir Hiking doesn’t have to be hard! Getting outside to walk every week should be part of our lives. And we know why—the physical and mental wellbeing benefits of walking are well-understood.
Do you love a good story? Admire the subtle beauty of the outback? Enjoy travelling to remote landscapes? Why not head to the state’s far north west and discover the greatest story ever … fossilised?
Winter, surely, is best spent snuggling under the covers or glued to the couch binge-watching your current favourite shows, right? Wrong! Winter is a fabulous time to ‘Think outside’ and get hiking in Queensland National Parks!
We get it. Dragging your teens and tweens away from their technology and into the great outdoors can be difficult, if not downright impossible.
You can feel the excitement! The Big Day Out (aka. your first day hike) is looming. Heading out into the wilderness as a first-time day-hiker brings with it a great deal of anticipation and nervous energy. But, beware! There’s a temptation to just ‘get out there’, ‘just do it’.
