It encourages physical activity
Naturally, being outside will mean you are more likely to move your body, rather than sitting inside on a sofa or at a desk. Walking is the most popular activity when outside but being in nature has a whole host of options, such as fishing, biking, climbing, sailing, amongst others.
Even a small amount of exercise is shown to have a positive impact on the mind by improving your mood, concentration and reducing stress.
Self-guided walking trails through the Parklands provide a low-impact opportunity to mindfully explore one of the world's finest urban parks. Take time to discover some of the Parklands' most iconic and interesting trees, or follow the digital Wildlife and Heritage Walk brochure to experience the flora, fauna and history of Sydney.
