What To Expect


Our Great Outdoors is about making real connections with people who share common outdoor interests, whether it’s walking & tramping, mountain biking, kayaking, climbing or anything else that gets us out there. You can find and follow members close to home or anywhere around New Zealand, message each other directly or start a group conversation. And as a community group leader, you can setup events, both virtual and real world to bring people together.


Sharing can be as simple as liking and commenting on other member’s content or adding a quick post. Feeling inspired? Submit a full-length article, whether it’s a trip report, a gear review or anything that you think would be of interest to the outdoor community. If it’s great content, we’ll feature it and give you the kudos you deserve. Sound good? Then come and join us and find your place in the community.

Why Our Great Outdoors

Our Great Outdoors was created by New Zealand outdoor enthusiasts for New Zealand outdoor enthusiasts. It’s an outdoors focussed social space that exists to serve the community, and is built on an independent platform (Mighty Networks) that gives us the control, and freedom to create something special. Join us and see for yourself.
