Length: 7.2 mi • Est. 2 h 53 m
A must do if you are in Sydney. The trail can certainly be crowded, but this is easily overcome by the jaw dropping vistas at every turn. There is great bus service to both Bondi and Coogee. Apply plenty of sunscreen and wear a bathing suit so you can cool off in the many accessible beaches. There are many water sources and eating options along the way. Give yourself 5 - 7 hours (one way) if you are snapping photos, grabbing food and taking a dip. This route may be frustrating for runners given the high amount of people on the trail.Show more

This is a great track if you're after a bit of a challenge but don't want anything too hard. Majority of the track is easy going, but you still have to watch your step as there are rocks and exposed roots. Some portions are a bit tricker as you have to climb up rocks and there are several stream crossings. There are markers but they kind of dwindle to nothing when you're in the thick of it, offline map recommended for easier navigation. Show more

Length: 12.6 mi • Est. 5 h 4 m
The name of this walk comes from its Indigenous name, Kiarama, meaning 'place where the sea makes a noise'. This is a beautiful coastal walk with undulating greenery, where farmland meets the Tasman Sea and is easy enough for the whole family. The route is a point-to-point so you can turn around and return to the start whenever you like. There is no shade throughout so definitely come prepared with enough water and sun protection, and it can also get gusty coastal winds so check the forecast beforehand. It can be difficult to find the track, so make sure to download the map ahead of time and carry a GPS. If you plan on walking the entire length to Gerringong, check ahead of time that the lagoon is open or crossable.Show more

This route can get quite steep and rocky, so consider going elsewhere if it's wet. Trekking boots are recommended. This signage isn't great, so make sure to download a map ahead of time. Although a forested area, there are long sunny stretches, so bring sunscreen.Show more

Length: 1.4 mi • Est. 45 m
Lesmurdie Falls located in the Lesmurdie Falls National Park in the hills east of Perth, are one of the more spectacular waterfalls on the Darling Range escarpment. Commencing at the top, this short 2 kilometre walk circuit meanders down to the base of the falls, up close to the lush vegetation, and is quite unique for the Perth area. The walk trail starts on the top of the falls where Lesmurdie brook tumbles over the Darling Range Escarpment. Walking down the hill, it follows the brook until it reaches a bridge at the top of the falls. Stand at the top and look over the fall of water. The trail continues down to the picnic area at the base of the hills. From here there is a trail that leads to the base of the falls. This is more like a waterfall in New Zealand than in Perth. The lush vegetation grows where the bubbling brook hits the base of the waterfall. The climb up the hill to return to the car park is steep but short. Enjoy morning tea or lunch in the near by Kalamunda Village. Show more

This is a challenging hike not far from Melbourne. It can get quite muddy so be careful when it's wet! There is an interesting memorial site along the way. The route can be done in either direction but most people choose to go clockwise.Show more
