Get reinvigorated by tall forests

In the tall forests, even the biggest of us can feel tiny. Among these ancient giants, we are all children. Sink into the peace of deep time, and breathe in the ancient remedies of the forest.

Here, the very air is alive. Our tall forests exhale calming, healing properties that we’re only just beginning to understand. Disconnect from the digital and seek solace in the green embrace of the ferns and climbers. When you leave your device behind and step out on a forest bathing walk, you’re participating in a healing ritual thousands of years old.

From the mosses and lichens adorning the tree trunks to the topmost canopy of the sassafras – from the tiny, delicate weebill to the gentle, wandering wombat – everything in the tall forest is in its right place. Find yours.

Mindfulness is a simple form of meditation that focuses on the present moment through paying attention, in a non-judgmental manner, to your senses and surroundings. Practicing mindfulness in nature is a great way to achieve a sense of balance and peace, and to connect with the places that are most meaningful to us.
