Whether a simple trail through a suburban forest or a multi-day camping trip somewhere more remote; either way it’s a chance to connect more closely with the natural world.

You’ll need appropriate clothing for the weather conditions, sturdy footwear, snacks, water, a first-aid kit, a compass and map and – if you’re on a long trip – food and specific camping equipment.

For some of the best long bushwalks in Australia, try the Larapinta Trail in NT, the Great Ocean Walk in Victoria, Fraser Island Great Walk in Queensland and Heysen Trail in South Australia.
