Get Outdoors Tasmania Inc. is a non-profit, non commercial, social change organisation who’s mission is to inspire all Tasmanian’s to experience the outdoors.
#getoutdoorstasmania for us to share your images on social media and help inspire people to get outdoors in Tasmania!
This year we facilitated a Get Outdoors Weekend all across Tasmania. Teaming up with clubs and businesses we promoted nature based outdoor activities during mental health week on Saturday 9th October and Sunday 10th October!
On Get Outdoors Weekend, approximately 100 participants experienced a range of activities, whether it was mountain biking, bushwalking, kayaking, trail running or cycling.
Since 2019 over 400 people have participated in facilitated outdoors experiences with 3 year olds mountain biking to 90 year olds bushwalking.
There are four key ways that being outdoors can impact positively on our mental health: breathing clean air, being physically active, enjoying other’s company, and reducing our stress levels (see Hartig et al 2014).
