A 5 day walk following the escarpment in Arnhem Land from Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge) to Leliyn (Edith Falls). Great swimming spots.
If you can walk, you can snow shoe. Snow shoeing is a great way of getting out back-country beyond the confines of the ski resort, into the silent open spaces of the Snowy Mountains, all icy rocks and snow gums. We had so much fun on our Girls Trips snow shoeing and ski-touring at Thredbo in 2012 and 2013, that we’re doing it again this year. (more…)
Running doesn’t come easily to me. I’m slow. I struggle to get up early, when it’s dark and cold, and the excuses are many. Despite all that, trail running with friends at dawn on a Saturday morning is one of the highlights of my week. I’d encourage other women to try adding trail running to their fitness program as an efficient and enjoyable workout. We can all learn to run. (more…)
A longer distance endurance walk with some good climbs and five pylons to help you stay on the route.
A good endurance distance walk, with nice climbs, an ancient volcanic diatreme, pretty Fishponds waterhole and a historic bridge.
The Cascades are a pretty tea spot after endurance and interval walking on the fire trails of Garigal.
