Make 2017 your wildest year yet! This year Wild is challenging you to take a break from the couch, to explore nature and make this a year filled with adventures and activities.

Where do I go? What do I do? With a Wild Card in hand and more than 80 protected areas to choose from, you are spoilt for choice. From wilderness walks to canoe trails, from birding to stargazing, there’s plenty to do in our parks and reserves. Let Wild be your guide to a year of magical memories.

Get inspired and get out thereYear of Adventure & Activity-FINAL logo

Every month, the Wild newsletter will put the spotlight on a featured activity. We’ll share fun ideas for adventuring, unpack the practicalities of doing so, and highlight new destinations to explore. Then it’s up to you to get out there and have a blast!

You don’t have to be an adrenalin junkie either. Our activities span the full spectrum, from mild to wild.

We want to know where you go, what you get up to, and what you love. So be sure to tag your pictures with our hashtag, #wildadventuregoals, and share with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The best images will be featured in the Wild online gallery.

Fancy a walk on the wild side? Discover the magic of wilderness walks, the Activity of the Month for March.

Welcome to Wild’s Year of Adventure & Activity. The year to start living, to get down and dirty with your Wild Card and make memories with your loved ones. The wilderness is calling and 2017 is the best time to answer.
