I’m Caro,

the Unexpected Outdoors Chick.

LotsaFreshAir is all about the ‘how to’ of having adventures in the great outdoors, mixed with a bunch of inspiration and a bucket-load of encouragement to help you say ‘yes’ to adventure.

Hiking and bushwalking totally changed my life and I’m passionate about helping others connect with nature in meaningful, active (and fun!) ways.

“It doesn’t matter if you take a short easy walk to a lookout, or carry a pack off-track for weeks at a time. Both are equally valid.”
