You're a social walker

If short, family-friendly strolls to a stunning lookout or relaxing picnic spot in NSW national parks are your bushwalking style, you're probably a social walker.

Read more about You're a social walker

You’re a relaxed and down-to-earth kind of person who believes the best things in life are free. Your favourite memories are with friends and family, away from the pressures of technology and modern life. For you, going on a nature walk isn’t about climbing the highest mountain or ticking new places off your list, it’s about spending quality time with the people you love.

When you visit a NSW national park, you’re the one most likely to pack the picnic, choose the meeting spot and make sure everyone is wearing sunscreen. Of course, it’s all worth it when you see the look on their faces as they scramble over rocks, dip their toes in pristine waters and spot local wildlife. Where other people see a nature walk, you see memories that will last a lifetime.
