John & Lyn Daly
John and Lyn are both experienced bushwalkers!
They have walked extensively in all Australian states and territories.
Everywhere they go, they find time to ‘Take A Walk…’, regardless of the season. Even if it’s November in Cape York, or June in Tasmania!
Overseas and Australian holidays are always planned to include one of the ‘classic’ walks. They have trekked in Nepal, tramped in New Zealand, hiked in Canada and the US, and backpacked in diverse, out-of-the-way places like Africa's Drakensberg Range, the steamy jungles of Borneo, Alaska's Arctic tundra, the Peruvian Andes, southern Africa, Galapagos Islands and along the shores of the Dead Sea. Their European adventures have included multi-day hikes in Spain, France, Switzerland and Italy. They have climbed volcanoes in Chile, hiked around Torres del Paine in Patagonia and camped in Antarctica.
Long distance walking is a particular passion.
