a bit of bush therapy

“WILDERNESS IS NOT A LUXURY BUT A NECESSITY OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT” – Edward Abbey AS I write this it’s Movember and men are growing crazy moustaches for mental health awareness. In Australia, 75% of suicides are men. And mental health issues are just as prevalent for women. This got me thinking about the health benefits of the outdoors. Researchers are finding more science-backed reasons why we should spend time outside. In her book, The Nature Fix, US journalist Florence Williams started investigating the health benefits of nature after moving from the mountainous terrain of Colorado, to busy Washington, DC. "I felt disoriented and depressed," she wrote. "My mind had trouble focusing. I couldn’t make decisions and I wasn’t keen to get out of bed." In an article for outsideonline.com Florence describes hiking…

grindelwald, switzerland

Part of the 'Via Alpina' – one of Switzerland's national trails – this walk in the Grindelwald region showcases the country's iconic beauty. As this photo attests, mirrored lakes reflect alpine peaks and the 360° vistas will take your breath away – if the steep trails haven't already! The Via Alpina crosses 14 beautiful alpine passes and continues through the northern Alps of Switzerland. Besides classic walking trails, there's plenty of culture, food and, of course, wine to appreciate along the way. You have a great choice of accommodation from 4-star hotels to tranquil mountain huts. More info: myswitzerland.com/hiking…

walk & talk

File it away I have subscribed (or bought from the newsagent) Great Walks for many years. I recently sorted them into date order from little piles all over the house and realise I have two plastic storage boxes of them. I have seen in past issues that there is an index available that might help me find an article in one of these past issues. Would you be able to send a copy to me please? Fran Vaughan, via email Hi Fran, thanks for being such a long time reader! Yes we keep an up-to-date index of every story from every issue of Great Walks free to everyone. Readers can ask for a copy by emailing editor@greatwalks.com.au . – Ed Not happy, Jan I was very disappointed in the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk story…

this month’s winning letter

Great walks, great state Dear editor, I really enjoyed the Dec-Jan issue of Great Walks. There was an interesting mix of walking destinations from the Flinders Ranges camel trek (Outback odyssey) to the story of a mum and daughter walking the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail (Girls just wanna have fun) – two great South Australia destinations. Not that I'm biased! Sarah Flyn-Doyle Adelaide, SA Hi Sarah, thanks for your feedback. We love South Australia! It's such a dynamic state, filled with an amazing contrast of geography and walking destinations. If you know of any other SA walks we should feature give us a shout. – Ed…

digging deep

ON a recent long weekend I went to the Blue Mountains with my husband and some friends. We hired a beautiful house near Blackheath with the intention of doing some bushwalks, and enjoying some good food and wine. We arrived mid afternoon on the Friday and enjoyed the views over a cold glass of Rosé. We planned on a relaxed morning followed by the fairly easy Pulpit Rock walk starting from the Govetts Leap lookout, a grade 3 walk suitable for most ages and fitness levels. I thought I'd be able to handle the 7km return track having just recovered from an inflammatory arthritic episode. I was wrong. We awoke on Saturday to a glorious cool day and headed to Govetts Leap around 11am. It's about a 3 hour return walk…
