Urban adventuring in your own backyard
When was the last time you explored your own backyard? Not the one behind your house, but your greater backyard - the city you live in, the vast area beyond your street.
Getting to know your own city or town on a deeper level is known as urban adventuring, and exploring secret spots and long-forgotten bushwalks will give you a renewed love of your hometown.
It’s common for people to overlook what’s in their own backyard in favour of adventuring overseas. Perhaps it’s because after a working week, even the weekends can become mundane and predictable, so when it’s time to book our holidays the appeal of far-off places is exciting. Yes - exploring a new country is awesome, BUT at the same time it’s important not to overlook our own magnificent country. We can easily go bushwalking on a weekend, explore suburbs we’ve never ventured into, biked along paths and tracks or take a run on a new path.
It’s time to get our spontaneity back! It’s time to go on some new adventures! If you’re uneasy about venturing out alone to begin with, you can try a walking or bike tour, or a popular beach trail along the coastline. When you’re feeling more confident, tackle those unknown tracks. Google can be your best friend – just type in “free outdoor adventures in Sydney” (*insert your home town here) and see what comes up!
Explore your own city – or an unfamiliar town – in a totally new way. Take roads you’ve never taken before and explore your environment with the most comfortable urban adventuring footwear – you know we’ve got the gear for it!
