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.

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.

If you'd prefer to explore Wilsons Prom with a team of Wild Women, join Di Westaway on a magical Wild Adventure in November. Book here. 

Queensland

Lamington National Park

Deanna Adams
Deanna Adams has experienced mental health issues for some time. But when her mum was diagnosed with leukemia late last year, her depression turned particularly nasty. After joining Wild Women, Deanna found hiking with women gave her the tools she needed to kick her depression to the curb. For the first time in years, Deanna is excited about life and opening her eyes every day. She is living proof that hiking is a woman's best medicine.
Philio Coastrek.jpg
Philio Georgiades went to bed just like she did every night. Nothing was different or out of the ordinary. The next morning, she woke up completely blind. It was the scariest time of her life. Philio couldn't see shapes or shades or shadows. She couldn't make out figures. And she couldn't see the faces of her husband or her children. After a month of waiting, in complete darkness, Philio was told there was hope. She underwent surgery and the operation altered the course of her life. Now, she's on a mission to give back.

We're pretty lucky in Australia. As keen adventurers and hikers, we're spoiled for choice. Sometimes it's easy to forget we're home to some of the world's most beautiful natural wonders. Life-changing trips are right at our doorstep, ones that don't require a passport or hours on a plane. And they're perfect micro adventures for a girl's weekend away. If you're from Queensland, or you're hoping to explore the Sunshine state, there are hundreds of trails to try. We've asked our coaches and you - our Wild Women - to share your favourite hikes in Queensland with us. Here are the eight weekend walks that get the Wild Women tick of approval.
Caroline Wilson
Caroline Wilson's health transformation probably isn't like the ones you've heard before. It's not a drastic weight loss story. It's not about glossy before and after photos. But Caroline's story is one that deserves, and needs, to be told. Her story is truly inspirational and is one we need to remember whenever we're feeling unmotivated or tentative about getting outside of our comfort zone.

There’s nothing quite like a partner, kid or friend accusing you of ‘PMS-ing’ or being ‘hormonal’ when you’re grumpy, especially when you are. In fact, I reckon there’s a special store of rage reserved for anyone who dares comment on the state of your hormones, particularly when they’re right. But is it okay to occasionally pick a fight with your partner because they're breathing too loud? Science says yes.
