There are many health benefits of walking. And walking with others adds fun and friendship along the way. Have you thought about joining a group for a different experience?

Marija Basic has always enjoyed her solo walks with the dog. 

Less than a year ago, she decided to try walking with others by joining the Logan and Beaudesert Bushwalkers. 

The regular group walks ranging anywhere from six to 85 kilometres literally transformed her.  

Her experience echos the research findings from the University of East Anglia on walking group participants.

According to the study, joining a walking group improves one’s general wellbeing. 

Benefits include lower blood pressure, resting heartbeat, less body fat and better mental health. 

And in Marija Basic’s case, she’s certainly found more peace.
