May Challenge - Queensland National Parks - Great Walks
We are excited to bring you a special monthly Challenge this May. In partnership with Queensland National Parks, we are challenging you to think outside and move towards a healthier, happier you!
Join us as we move more every day and celebrate exploring Queensland's breathtaking Great Walks and national parks - virtually! Whether you are walking, wheeling or shuffling, every move counts and every challenge completed gives you an entry into the prize draw!
We are so lucky to have many Queensland parks and forests on our doorstep, so why not add a visit as a regular part of your routine? Before work, during lunch or in the afternoon, parks are open any time to help get your heart pumping and escape from the daily grind! The best part? If you visit mid-week, you can beat the crowds!
This Challenge aims to inspire you to move more every day, and to think outside and find a walk, hike or track in a park or forest to help you achieve your physical activity goals.
Queensland National Parks have a series of inspiring blogs on their Think outside website, with lots of information and helpful hints and tips to prepare for your next outdoor adventure. From short walks to long hikes, wheelchair and stroller-friendly tracks and plenty of other nature-based activities, there's something for everyone. Here are a few of our favourite Think Outside blogs:
- We especially like #4 on the 9 tips to get you out walking in Queensland National Parks.
- Take a break and get Out of the office and into the wild!
- Because there are never enough tips when it comes to kids - 10 tips for hiking with children.
- And, if you've been inspired by this Challenge, check out A taste of Queensland's Great Walks-take a day hike!
For further inspiration, be sure to follow Queensland National Parks on social media and sign up to the monthly Naturally Queensland newsletter, their posts and stories will make you dream about the views and experiences that can be had!
