Cradle Mountain, Tasmania

Deep in the heart of Tasmania is Cradle Mountain. At the base of the mountain near the carpark is Dove Lake. You can take a leisurely walk around Dove Lake and look up to the peak. This is in itself an enjoyable walk. Otherwise, you can walk around the lake and then up the slopes on the trails to gain an elevation on the slopes of Cradle Mountain.

Watarrka Kings Canyon rim walk, Red centre, Northern Territory

In the heat of the Red centre of Australia, the 500-step walk up the canyon rim can be a bit of a slog. But the effort is worth it. Many people find Kings Canyon more engaging because of the varied terrain and micro-habitats than other destinations in the Red Centre. The walk is 6km long and will take around 3.5 hours.

Jim Jim Falls, Top End, Northern Territory

When access allows, normally in late June through to October, in Kakadu National Park, you can walk up the rocky track along Jim Jim Creek to the cliff faces and plunge pool of Jim Jim Falls. The falls may not be flowing when you arrive but you can cool off in the cool pool. The walk in showcases the animal and plant life that thrives around the water source and in the shade. The water flows off the escarpment and pools here after the wet season. It’s a diverse and interesting walk with a great reward at the end.

Check out our Jim Jim Falls tours.

MacKenzie Falls, Grampians National Park, Victoria

The Grampians National Park is visited by all tours travelling between Melbourne and Adelaide in both directions. The Mackenzie Falls lie at the bottom of a steep walk down steps to the base of the falls. It’s a great place to reflect and enjoy the cool feeling of the water before the exertion of the walk back up the stairs.

Alligator Gorge, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Step back in time as you walk through this normally dry gorge. The layers of sedimentary rock tell the stories of the ages here in the Flinders Ranges. A great place to walk in the shade created by the gorge walls on a hot day, a real micro-climate.

Hamersley Gorge, Karijini National Park

Karijini National Park gorges, Western Australia

The metallic iron-rich rock that you find in abundance in this special place literally pings when you hit it in Karijini National Park. More interesting though is to walk deep into the gorges that have been carved by water.
