Bushwalking Australia

Bushwalking is an Australian activity. You may know it by a different name such as hiking, tramping, hill walking, rambling or trekking.

Bushwalking covers a wide spectrum of walking experiences in natural or green areas.

A bushwalk might be a walk along a trail through urban parks or forest near where you live, or it could be a full day walk or camping trip to a national park or reserve.

At the other end of the spectrum a bushwalk can be a multi-day expedition where you are self-sufficient carrying a tent and food.

No matter which option you choose it is all bushwalking and because Australia has such a great network of natural areas and a wide variety of land forms there are many opportunities to get into bushwalking whether it be on designated trails or in remote wilderness areas.
