Australia is full of places which are great for bushwalking or hiking. In fact, often the only way to access some spectacular sights is by entering on foot.
Whether you enjoying bushwalking for the scenery, exploring botany, flora and fauna, to see some magnificent caves or tropical rainforests, or simply for the abundant birdlife to be seen in many areas, bushwalking is a very relaxing pastime.
There are many and varied bushwalking and hiking tours
available throughout all states and territories of Australia , whether you wish to go for an hour or a week-long trek. With such diverse landscapes ranging from seemingly barren deserts, grand countryside vistas, glorious rainforests, stunning beaches and the magnificent splendour of river canyons and gorges, bushwalking is an activity which can be enjoyed by all of the family.
Do make sure that you are well-equipped before you set out, carry plenty of fresh water, sunscreen, insect repellent, sunglasses, a hat and some ‘energy' food like muesli bars and chocolate.
If you plan a long bushwalk, equip yourself with the appropriate maps and a compass as well as extra clothing and provisions. Wear sensible walking shoes and carry some warm clothing and/or a light waterproof jacket. Most importantly, always let someone know where you are going and how long you expect to be.
