Fortescue Bay, Tasmania
The Moai butte stands up as straight as a pole from the cliffs of Fortescue Bay on Tasmania’s south-east coast. Highline specialist Ryan Robinson figured that it would be the ideal endpoint for his 70m slackline. “It’s like the gods gently placed this here to be strung up and walked across,” says the American, who posted the video of his balancing act 35m above the surge on Instagram.

Red Bull Hare Scramble, at the Erzberg mine in Styria, is regarded as the toughest one-day Hard Enduro dirt bike race in the world. Riders face 30km of near-vertical dirt trails, head-high boulders and traffic jams on the steep slopes (pictured). Some years, there are only a handful of finishers – like in 2015, when only five of 500 contestants completed the course. Red Bull Hare Scramble is on May 29. Check out the live stream on:
