Length: 5.9 mi • Est. 2 h 50 m
This route can be done in either direction, but most people go from Spit Bridge to Manly. The trail can get a bit dusty in summer, and doesn’t offer much shade so wear plenty of sunscreen! Feeling energetic? You can continue through Little Manly to Collins Beach and then up to North Head. If you’re taking public transportation, you can bus to Spit Bridge and then ferry or bus back from Manly. Show more

This is a beautiful route passing multiple waterfalls. It is mostly shaded and can be done in either direction. It can be muddy and rocky in some sections so exercise caution especially with young ones. Some folks choose to go swimming in the creeks and ponds along the route.Show more

Length: 4.6 mi • Est. 2 h 40 m
The Kurung-jung-balluk and the Mapeang-balluk peoples are the traditional owners of the region where the Werribee Gorge is nestled. The Werribee Gorge is a beautiful route along the Werribee River. There are a few technical areas requiring some scrambling and possibly cables, but they’re not that difficult to manoeuvre. The area is generally heavily trafficked especially on weekends given its proximity to Melbourne only one hour north-west. There are even some areas to go swimming to take in the picturesque gorge.Show more

The weather along the route can be unpredictable, so bring cold weather gear and waterproof shoes. Show more

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 family friendly track that will make you feel like you’re out of the city even though you’re right in it! There is plenty of shade and light breezes accompanied by wildlife like ducks and bush turkeys. There are some great picnic spots along the route, even a cafe.Show more

Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park
hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(86)
Length: 78.7 mi • Est. Multi-day
This legendary track spans over 76 miles from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin. The route traverses the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge in southwestern Australia. There is seasonal water and camping spots along the way. Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park stretches 120km from Bunker Bay in the north to Augusta in the south. The Leeuwin-Naturaliste ridge, a geological formation of ancient granite capped by limestones and sand dunes runs for the length of the park. This ridge accounts for some of the features for which the area is best known. Rugged sea cliffs, windswept granite headlands, and formations such as Canal Rocks and Sugarloaf Rock dominate the coastline, interspersed by curving beaches, sheltered bays and long, rocky shorelines. On the northern shores of Cape Naturaliste, a series of quiet bays lead to the Cape. Protected from the prevailing south-westerly winds, these areas are popular for swimming, fishing or beachcombing. Surfing is also popular at many well-known breaks on the western coast, such as Smiths Beach and Yallingup. Coastal walk trails and steps down sand dunes have been provided at many places to help prevent erosion. This walk focuses on the northern section of the park, and is designed for people exploring the park from the nearby towns of Busselton, Dunsborough and Yallingup.Show more

This is a great route for the experienced hiker. You'll have a chance to see waterfalls, so going after a rain isn't a bad idea. That being said, the trail can get quite muddy! Allot for 5 - 6 hours for this trek.Show more
#10 - Flinders Peak
Flinders Peak Conservation Park
hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(240)
Length: 3.8 mi • Est. 2 h 44 m
This is a great day-hike out to Flinders Peak with spectacular views from the upper slopes toward the nearby rugged mountain peaks of the Scenic Rim and the Bremer River catchment. Keep your eyes out as Flinders Peak supports native fauna including the brush-tailed rock wallaby, peregrine falcon and the wedge-tailed eagle. This is graded as a difficult trail as the terrain is unmodified, the alignment is indistinct, and a high level of fitness and level of specialised outdoor skills including navigation are required. There are also steep rock scrambling sections that shouldn't be attempted when wet. Signage is for management purposes only so be sure to carry appropriate GPS equipment with you.Show more
