Read more about You're a well-balanced traveller

You work hard and enjoy a busy lifestyle, but every now and again need to spend time alone to recharge your batteries. Taking a nature walk in a NSW national park makes you feel refreshed and ready to tackle the demands of daily life. For you, bushwalking is about finding a quiet place to relax and unwind. If there’s a spectacular view along the way, even better.

You prefer to hike alone and immerse yourself in nature, away from the crowds and the pressures of modern life. Of course, you’re always happy to say hello to other people on the trail, or help them with directions along the way. It’s not about how far or fast you walk, it’s about slowing down and staying grounded, so you can appreciate everything life has to offer.
