A new year always means new health and fitness goals, there are fewer places better than the land down-under, so we thought we would share some of our favourite spots to work up a sweat while enjoying the great outdoors! With some states boasting 131 clear days per year and an average of 9 hours of sunshine per day our incredible country has options for every season and fitness level!
1000 Steps - that’s right 1000 steps! Situated in Mt Dandenong, Melbourne the steps replicate the physical struggle endured by soldiers during 1942. There are only a few spots for rest breaks so pack your a-game and lots of water to keep you hydrated!
Bondi Icebergs Baths- The famous Sydney Baths have been an icon for over 100 years. Get your swim in overlooking Bondi beach, then treat yourself to a feed when you head to Icebergs for lunch!
Bendy Breakfast- Start your day with a morning yoga session followed by a lovingly prepared nourishing breakfast. Based in Fremantle, Western Australia - Bendy Breakfast’s locations vary, one week you’re on a CBD Hotel rooftop, the next you might be on a beach! You can find session details on their Facebook page.
Booroomba Rocks – You are sure to get your adrenalin going, this is the biggest cliff near Canberra and offers fantastic rock climbing potential. The cliff is approximately 140m at its peak- WARNING not for the faint hearted!
Lancelin Sand Dunes- hire a sand board from the local café, grab some wax and climb the dunes located in Western Australia. The fun part is trying to stay on your board- the constant walk back up the dunes will get your legs working and burning!
Lake Broadwater Regional Park – Test your paddling expertise by kayaking down the Noosa River in Queensland. Not only is this a great place to get a work out you can also enjoy birdwatching, picnicking and camping after you sweat it out!
