At Australian Geographic Outdoor, we enjoy being your source of inspiring Australian and international adventure travel and lifestyle. We give you a look into the best destinations and adventure that nature has on offer, along with the skills, information and gear that you need to get you out there.

Headlong into a wide open future

Scribes in the undergrowth • The clock ticks, fresh ideas take shape, inspiration gathers momentum until, finally, thoughts flow and words take shape. Perhaps haphazardly at first, but then steadily and with increasing purpose, until... eureka! New ideas are imprinted upon a page; a fresh perspective on our endless fascination for well-told yarns, from places we all yearn to visit.

FINGERTIP THRILLS • Ryan Moss experiences an exhilarating moment at the top of a pillar jutting up from a tumble of boulders, in Joshua Tree National Park, USA.

Saving our unique landscapes • There's always something new to love and appreciate about Australia, even for those who've spent their lives travelling and exploring its majestic confines. Bel Smith suggests 2020 is the prefect time to rediscover the wonder of homegrown adventure.

Taste-Testing • Fitting multi-day walks into working life isn’t easy. But testing out shorter sections of the walk can be a great short-term solution.

Into the heart of the matter • There's never been a better time to venture inland; into the abundant space and tranquility of Central Australia.

Where to stay

Alice Springs and Tennant Creek

Bike local this autumn • Now, more than ever, is the right time to finally get to that bike trail you’ve always wanted to check-out. Outdoor’s mountain bike columnist, Ash Gray explains why.

Hike Switzerland this summer • Striding out in the Swiss Alps during the bounteous joy of a warm European summer; taking-in beautiful valleys dotted with picture-postcard villages, flugelhorns, cheese fondue, the world’s best chocolate to energise the day ahead. It doesn’t get much better.

32 OF THE BEST SINGLE DAY WALKS YOU CAN DO IN SWITZERLAND • If epic multi-day hikes aren’t your bag, there’s a whole host of more manageable bite-sized hiking opportunities that’ll definitely whet the appetite. Why not have a crack at one of these in preparation for a massive two, three or even four-weeker?

STAYING COOL IN QUEENSLAND • Running around in the Queensland heat works up a mean thirst and appetite. Having the support of Engel, who supplied an 158L ice box, and Fishing Cooler Bags for a recent trip into north made the long days — and longer nights — a whole lot more pleasant and achievable.

HEAR ME OUT • There’s a pretty solid argument for equipping yourself with a basic set of handheld radios. They’re more mobile and not everyone owns, or can afford, a powerful mounted unit. GME’s TX667 handhelds proved their worth during a recent trip up north.

The power of isolation • As more and more runners take advantage of Australia's beatiful national parks, the great expanse and unique challenges of the Outback are fast becoming the last truly isolated running spot on Earth

Queenstown snowmobile ADVENTURE • Cruising the foothills of Aoraki (Mt Cook)

Snowmobiling, unplugged

QUEENSTOWN SNOWMOBILES: New Zealand’s only helisnowmobiling adventure

HELL on Two Wheels • New singletracks in Derby, the 42km Bay of Fires Trail and an extensive stacked loop network near St Helens are bound to attract mountain bikers in their droves... or so you’d think.
