Walking Australia

Stretch your legs and expand your soul on Australia’s epic walking trails. Do day walks, short scenic sections or stride end-to-end on journeys that take weeks and even months to complete. Traverse Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed wilderness on the Overland Track or follow the Larapinta Trail across the Northern Territory’s West MacDonnell Ranges. Do sections of South Australia’s Heysen Trail, which stretches from the Fleurieu Peninsula to Flinders Ranges. Spend three days in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains or hike through Gondwanan rainforest on the Gold Coast. Do day walks through Victoria’s Wilsons Promontory or soak up the beauty of Western Australia’s south-west corner on the Bibbulmun Track.
