Pull on the hiking boots as AT shows you the ten best walks you do in a day.
A wayward, wandering kind of bloke, Andrew Bain has walked several thousand kilometres across great chunks of the country, and is the lead author of Lonely Planet’s Walking in Australia guidebook. We pull on the boots to follow his guide to the best walks in Australia you can do in a day.
For all the obvious appeals of walking through the bush for days on end, there are also some grimmer realities: the 20-odd kilograms of backpacking, the heels rubbed into something resembling steak tartare, the centimetre-thick mattresses that make the nights as uncomfortable as the days.
Day walks are a welcome compromise, doing away with most of the discomforts while sometimes offering scenery and experiences to rival any of the famous multi-day bushwalks. Here, we’ve chosen the ten day walks we believe to be the finest and most rewarding in the country.
