The sky is the limit for trekkers
NORTH Burnett resident Kylie Schooley chose an adventurous way of celebrating her 50th birthday.
To mark the milestone, Mrs Schooley joined five of her best friends in trekking the Larapinta Trail in the Northern Territory.
The 223km long Larapinta Trail is one of Australia’s most spectacular bush walking and trekking experiences with exceptional views across the territory.
One of the group members, Wendy Wallis said the trek took six days and was a significant challenge.
“It was a very picturesque trek where you are climbing up huge hills and are standing 1200 metres above ground,” Mrs Wallis said.
“In the last section we did it was quite flat which made it easier for the team to accomplish.”
Mrs Wallis said each day was different with a lot to see and explore.
“The scenery was different every day which was amazing and it made the trek go quicker, which was good,” she said.
Having finished the trail, the group is looking into their next adventure.
“We spoke about it together and it was either Tasmania or New Zealand as we got along so well and we all have the bug,” Mrs Wallis said.
