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.
