I can't wait to see the pictures. I have always said there are 3 places I want to go before I die. Alaska, Australia and Japan. I loved Steve Irwin and wanted to go to the zoo. I cried for days when he passed. Sometimes I still watch his show.

I want to do this. I want to be in Group 1 because of my knees and getting the shots now. Not sure I understand how this works. I do this at home with a pedometer.

Starting on Feb 19th I will be running a Virtual Fraser Island Trekacise that will go for 4 weeks.

For those of you who don’t know Fraser Island (Australia) it stretches over 123 kilometres in length and 22 kilometres at its widest point. With an area of 184 000 hectares it is the largest sand island in the world.
There is a map here if you are interested
www.derm.qld.gov.au/parks/fraser/pdf
/f
raser-island-map.pdf


Fraser Island's World Heritage listing ranks it with Australia's Uluru, Kakadu and the Great Barrier Reef. Fraser Island is a precious part of Australia's natural and cultural heritage, it is protected for all to appreciate and enjoy.
Fraser island is a place of exceptional beauty, with its long uninterrupted white beaches flanked by strikingly coloured sand cliffs, and over 100 freshwater lakes, some tea-coloured and others clear and blue all ringed by white sandy beaches. Ancient rainforests grow in sand along the banks of fast-flowing, crystal-clear creeks.
Fraser Island is the only place in the world where tall rainforests are found growing on sand dunes at elevations of over 200 metres. The low "wallum" heaths on the island are of particular evolutionary and ecological significance, and provide magnificent wildflower displays in spring and summer.

We will base our virtual trek on The Fraser Island Great Walk – but will do a few side trips as well.
As we go along I will include links to pictures and descriptions of the area – for your interest.

I have included 4 groups of movement – and it is up to you to choose the group that suits your mobility
GROUP 1 – limit to under 1000 steps daily or not more than 15 mins exercise daily. Suitable for those who are just starting.
GROUP 2 – limit of 6000 steps, or not more than 40 mins exercise daily. Suitable for those who are more capable and have been either walking or chair marching for a time.
GROUP 3 – limit of 10,000 steps or not more than 60 min exercise daily. Suitable for those walk long distances in comfort.
GROUP 4 – Suitable for Wheelchair/non-walking members ONLY – not more than 20 min exercise daily,

Exercise is any exercise – Swimming, Water aerobics, Chair Dancing, Exercise DVDs, strength training, gym etc

Steps can be accumulated through the day – walking, chair marching etc
You need to count your steps – a pedometer is the best way to do this, or time your exercise. Unless stated – you can mix up the steps and exercise time freely.

Steps or exercise amounts required can be broken up through the day but they must total the given amount by the end of the day.

If you are interested in taking part - remember this is a virtual trekacise – please register your interest here
Thank you
