Let­ter of the is­sue

Australian Geographic Outdoor - - Letters -

WE FIRST PUR­CHASED YOUR mag­a­zine in March/April last year and that first edi­tion fea­tured an ar­ti­cle on AGO’s favourite walks from all over the world. One of the walks was re­ferred to as one of Aus­trala­sia’s hard­est walks: the Dusky Track at the bot­tom of Fiord­land in New Zealand. My girl­friend had done a bit of a trekking pre­vi­ously and I took an in­ter­est when we first started dat­ing but had never done any se­ri­ous trekking or any­thing like this. I in­stantly said that I wanted us to do it to­gether.We set about train­ing and sure enough un­der­took the trek over the Christ­mas break. It was so chal­leng­ing but re­ward­ing and I have a new found ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the out­doors and spend­ing our hol­i­days in such an amaz­ing way.We have pur­chased your mag­a­zine re­li­giously since then and are cur­rently plan­ning our next walk to­gether. Thanks for the lat­est fea­ture on the South Is­land, New Zealand.We think we will head back there again, maybe for some­thing a lit­tle bit less chal­leng­ing this time! Michael Par­men­tier, NSW Thanks for the let­ter and kind words Michael.To help you pack for many more ad­ven­tures, en­joy this The North Face duf­fel bag (RRP$180).

NZ’s Dusky Track, one of our Top Trek se­lec­tions in 2016, was just the chal­lenge one of our read­ers was up for.
