Looking for a new idea for your weekend getaway? Why not try an Outdoor Weekend? It can be total fun and you have heaps of different options to pick from. You can even have a whole series of outdoor weekends and still do something new every time.
No matter what you want to do and experience on your outdoor weekend, a good plan is really important. Part of the planning phase is getting the right equipment, best available information, checking influences like weather, tide, sunrise and sunset and so on.
As your outdoor weekend can be happening in a really remote area it is also very important to be prepared for emergencies and again have the right equipment with you. Like a personal GPS and emergency beacon if you go bush walking, first aid equipment (and know how to use it), food and water for a bit longer then you think you might need it, just in case.
Depending on what you are going to do and where you are planning to go make sure that you have good (current) maps of the area, good advice before you leave and good preparation for whatever it is you want to do.
