If our Four Epic Bushwalks whetted the appetitie, here are the next five best . . .


1. Frenchmans Cap, Tas //

One of Tassie’s most distinctive peaks, with its 400m-high summit cliffs; if only you didn’t have to virtually swim through buttongrass plains to get there.

2. Great Ocean Walk, Vic //

An eye-catching name, though it might lack the anticipated iconic status until some of the sections along roads and 4WD tracks are re-routed.

3. Great North Walk, NSW //

A green corridor from Sydney to Newcastle, but do you really want to walk 250km just to find you’ve gone from a big city to a big city?

4. Mt Bartle Frere, Qld //

A humid climb to the tip of Queensland’s highest mountain. With around 800cm of rain a year, it’s a good place to debunk the sunny Queensland myth.

5. Yurrebilla Trail, SA //

Winding through the Adelaide Hills for three days is great, if you don’t mind looking at Adelaide so much.
