Last-Minute Adventures For The Easter Long Weekend

By the Wild Women On Top Team

If you haven’t yet got a fabulous adventure planned for the Easter long weekend, fret not. It might be too late to organise hiking around Auckland or surfing in Indonesia, but it’s not too late to explore the gorgeous wilderness that’s right on your doorstep.

Here are our top picks for your long weekend adventures…

New South Wales

Kanangra-Boyd National Park

Blue Mountains

Hike around Kanagra Walls and camp overnight at Boyd River campground. You'll love this gorgeous, riverside spot that’s the perfect base for hiking and mountain biking.

Tasmania

Walls of Jerusalem National Park

Wild Women of Hobart, explore! You can’t beat the Walls of Jerusalem National Park – it’s iconic Tassie wilderness at its best.

South Australia

Fleurieu Peninsula

Parsons Beach

Get a taste of Adelaide Coastrek by hiking the best of the Heyson Trail from Parsons Beach to Victor Harbour. Do it in a day, and then enjoy the fine food and wine the Fleurieu Peninsula has to offer.

Victoria

Wilsons Promontory National Park

Wilsons Prom

Melbournians, head down to the glorious Wilsons Prom for your long weekend and enjoy the rugged headlands and peaceful coast of Victoria’s southern-most point.

Queensland

Lamington National Park

Sometimes I’m happy to suffer through a bit of not-so-glam to experience something epic, like the remote wilderness of Iceland or Everest Base Camp. But if I can enjoy an incredible, mind-blowing adventure, have a physical challenge AND wash my hair when it’s over… well, sign me up.

This year, she's taking on a different kind of adventure, one that absolutely gets our tick of approval. Fiona tells us how becoming a Wild Woman has pushed her beyond what she thought she was capable of.

Most of us have grown up thinking that losing strength and gaining weight are just part of growing old. We think that with each birthday after forty, we’ll get a bit saggier, a bit softer and a bit flabbier. But is weight gain really a fact of ageing?
Margaret Sheridan
Wild Woman Margaret Sheridan was nudging 70 when she thought she might be getting too old for adventure hiking. But a challenge from her youngest son stopped those doubts in their tracks. Now 79, Margaret has completed three Coastreks and is proof that age is just a number. Here's what she's got planned next.
