Score: 8.7

There seems to be a disproportionate number of Tasmanian entries in the top 20 of our list… or so you might think, until you’ve been personally converted! And the four-day Bay of Fires Lodge Walk, with its charming mix of tired feet and fine wine, will certainly do that. Named after the numerous bonfires English explorer Tobias Furneaux saw when he sailed past the Tasmanian north-eastern coastline in 1773, the Bay of Fires was densely populated before colonial times but now is an empty stunningly beautiful area of inlets, lagoons, woodlands and white sandy beaches. From $2150 per person twin-share for a four-day guided tour including accommodation, transfers, meals. More info:
