Park Trek Celebrates International Women’s Day

International Women's Day

Park Trek is proud to have wonderful women in our team that helps us deliver memorable and safe outdoor experiences to our guests. We would like to express our appreciation and celebrate women in our team.

We asked women in our team to share their favourite Australian walks and reasons why they love outdoors. Read their answers below and get inspired for your next walk:

Emma

What do you love most about being in the outdoors?

It’s where I feel most at home. Life is simple. I feel more switched on, aware of and grateful for my environment, my health and the places my body can take me. It enhances my appreciation of all things.

What is your favourite hiking destination in Australia and why?

Tasmania of course! It’s hard to narrow it down. What I love most is the variety of terrain and activities you can enjoy, all within a few hours of each other. Tassie packs a punch! I’ve spent a lot of time walking in the Cradle-Lake St Clair region and I keep going back so that would have to be one of the favourites.

What Park Trek tour is your favourite and why?

The Tarkine. Such an incredible and special place. From the rugged West Coast with its dramatic rock formations and wild seas, to endless rolling hills of buttongrass, to cool quiet rainforests and the black mirror water of the Pieman. There’s something in it for everyone.

Bianca

What do you love most about being in the outdoors?

Fresh air, huge vistas and the sense of adventure.

What is your favourite hiking destination in Australia and why?

Cradle Mountain– because it’s spectacular in every season and has such an amazing variety of different walks.

Mt Field & the Tassie South West – for the lush rainforests, Bright coloured mushrooms and boulder hopping to the jagged peaks.

What Park Trek tour is your favourite and why?

It’s a 3-way tie between the Tarkine, Cradle Mountain and
Three Peaks. All for the same reasons – epic views, huge variety of landscapes and fantastic walks.

Alex

What do you love most about being in the outdoors?

The clean crisp air, the sounds of nature – birds, insects, water running through creek beds, the breeze approaching through the tops of the trees and disappearing again overhead, expansive views and the feeling of being close to the earth. 

What is your favourite hiking destination in Australia and why?

The Blue Mountains slot canyon. They are a such a unique and beautiful environment, in remote locations and require skill, commitment and perseverance to visit.

What Park Trek tour is your favourite and why?

The Bay of Fires as a destination as it is on my back doorstep so I get to experience it daily in all possible conditions, it’s incredible how dynamic it is.

Operations Manager Alex

Lorinda

What do you love most about being in the outdoors?

Breating in the fresh air and seeing some beautiful, amazing untouched places.

What is your favourite hiking destination in Australia and why?

Gariwerd – the Grampians– because it is so uniquely beautiful, with a significant history. Also has so many activities and things to offer.

What Park Trek tour is your favourite and why?

(After Gariwered) Three Capes in Tassie. Rugged coastline with varying ecosystems throughout each hike.

Bailey

What do you love most about being in the outdoors?

My favorite thing about being outdoors is disconnecting from my phone and daily stressors. It’s always the best to reconnect with the natural world with friends and family.

What is your favourite hiking destination in Australia and why?

The first notable outdoor place I visited in Australia was the Grampians so naturally it has been my favourite as it’s a very nostalgic place. I love the abundance of wild life you see whether in the small towns around or deep in the bush and landscape of the Grampians.

What Park Trek tour is your favourite and why?

I have yet to be on a Park Trek hike but my favorite destination is the Ikara-Flinders Ranges because I’m planning a trip with my partner to South Australia soon. We plan on visiting some of the destinations Park Trek takes our guests on and can’t wait to be able to speak to them personally.
