An arduous day-walk or overnight loop walk in Bungonia Gorge. The route combines the Red Track (Slot Track) and White Track (Mount Ayre Track) with some off-track walking along Bungonia Creek. The reward for the steep descent and ascent is remote camping by the river and some great views.
One of the many routes through the Blue Labyrinth, the two-day walk from Faulconbridge to Glenbrook in the lower Blue Mountains combines tracks along Sassafras and Glenbrook Creeks with sweeping views from Lost World Lookout. It’s a varied walk with lots of potential camping sites.
The Tongariro Northern Circuit (which also includes the very popular Tongariro Alpine Crossing), circles Mount Ngauruhoe through a largely bleak and moon-like landscape. The volcanic landscape is occasionally broken by lush forest and tussock grass.
Maria Island offers a unique combination of abundant wildlife, Australian convict and early industrial history and multi-day bushwalking opportunities. A four-day itinerary takes us to the far southern end of Maria Island as well to the summits of Mt Maria (711m) and Bishop and Clerk (620m), and to the Fossil Cliffs by bike.
The Three Capes Tack on the Tasman Peninsula can be done for free either as one-day “express” bushwalking or by using one of two campsites. Whether you do it in one day or over four days, expect spectacular coastal scenery and a very high quality walking track.
