We talks to Anna Carlile, creator of Walks In Nature, about what inspired her walking trails box set idea.

What is Walks in Nature?

Walks in Nature: Sydney is a box set of cards that covers 32 walking trails for Sydney and the surrounds. Each trail varies in length and includes a place to rest and refuel. The walks are colour-coded according to season, so that you can enjoy the natural surrounds at any time of the year. Each card also has a map and text describing each trail.

What inspired the box set?

One of my passions is connecting people to nature, and this is a way I could do this. I love bushwalking and I’m a designer, and my mother Diana Carlile has been taking people bushwalking for about 20 years so we decided to collaborate and create this box of cards. We have also created a box of 32 Melbourne walks.
