I really enjoy getting out for a walk but even more so as the sun begins to shine again. Walking gives me the opportunity to unwind and clear my head, I usually put on headphones and listen to music or a podcast. I have always enjoyed walking, with fond memories of walking to kindergarten, school and going for walks with my grandma to run errands when I stayed with her.
A place that I like to walk around is Organ Pipes National Park, it’s a short drive from my home and has so much to offer. It makes a great change from walking around the streets in my local area. Organ Pipes National Park is the closest national park to Melbourne, located at the eastern-most edge of one of the world’s largest ancient volcanic lave flows. The basalt columns that resemble organ pipes were formed millions of years ago.
Top things I love about walking:
- The feeling after a long walk – refreshed, energised and motivated
- Walking with someone – lovely to chat
- Listening to music or catching up on a podcast
- Getting out in nature
