Jo will get you hike ready for bush walking in Tasmania and over seas. Whether you need fitness for hiking long day walks like a Tasmanian Iconic Walk or multi day walks, at sea level or at altitude Jo Cordell-Cooper will help you get you ‘hike ready”. Our 75 minute sessions are on local suburban bush tracks. Bring your back pack and coat, and hiking poles if you have them. We will learn how to use relatively short tracks to gain the fitness you need for longer adventures. This is an all weather event, and the walk start location may change from time to time, but we will always be in Lindisfarne or Geilston Bay.


Over a 6 month period jo supervised my training for an endurance walk.  As I have a fairly unique body the goal of walking 25 km in a team was initially daunting.  But bit by bit I got stronger and more capable.  I learned how to prepare mentally as well as physically, and nutrition on the day and leading up to the event was addressed too.  Having this goal inspired me, and I loved having a challenging event to look forward to knowing I was well prepared for it. If you have a challenging event coming up I highly recommend Jo to get you HIKE READY!

 The Tasmanian Iconic Walks charity was founded by Jo Cordell-Cooper in 2017

Our aim is to offer a unique wilderness bush walking experience in Tasmania, whilst raising awareness and money for the Stroke Foundation.  To date we have offered 3 events and raised over $120,000. 100% of this was donated to the Stroke Foundation.

We know that 80% of strokes can be prevented, with key determinants for this outcome involving eating well and taking regular exercise. 

Like to be involved?  Have fun, get fit and raise some money for a great cause – 100% of your dollars raised will go to Stroke Foundation.

We organise one event each year in Tasmania and we walk from Tasman Arch to Fortescue Bay.

I will be back next year and have already been approached by people who would love to do this walk.      Well done and thank you to Tasmanian Iconic Walks for the fabulous day, all of the planning and behind the scenes work showed, and it was a surprise to some on our team that this was an inaugural event.
