Great Walks May Update

May 22, 2015

The June-July issue is out and it’s chockers with great stories. We’ve got a whole section dedicated to bushwalking in NZ and one woman tells us what it’s like to walk the entire length of the country – all 3000km of it! Get yourself a copy at newsagents, select outdoor retailers, via subscription or score a digital version for your iPad.

Closer to home, walking guide company Yuraygir Walking Experiences is open for business, last weekend’s The North Face 100 event was filled with drama and emotion, and visitors are urged to stay safe in Karijini NP after a number of accidental deaths.

In other news, a historic Blue Mountains bridge has been replaced, our NSW nature walk of the week is the iconic Six Foot Tack and congrats to the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service after receiving accolades for three projects at the annual National Trust Heritage Awards.

If you’re heading to WA make sure you check out the new Pilgrim Trail or if your destination is South Australia hop over to Kangaroo Island where part of an exciting new multi-day walking trail is open for exploring.

Don’t forget, this month’s photo comp theme is ‘the forest floor‘ so head into the bush, get on all fours and start snapping!

Happy walking
