Wild times in the great outdoors, but at what price?

In this episode of Good Weekend Talks, we look at the rise of long walks – and the possible costs to wilderness areas.

As more of us try to escape from our screens on multi-day treks, and as new trails and accommodation are created to meet this demand, many bushwalkers worry about what kind of wilderness will be left in our national parks.

Good Weekend senior writer Konrad Marshall and The Age senior journalist and environment reporter Miki Perkins looked into the issue for our feature story this week: “Walk right in: How heavy are hiker footprints becoming in pristine wilderness areas – and who has the right to make them?”


Konrad and Miki are joined on the podcast by Good Weekend editor Katrina Strickland to chat about everything from their best and worst hiking experiences, to the companies looking to capitalise on our outdoor meanderings with elaborate huts along public trails.
