Australia is famed for its outdoors and great natural beauty. Some of the best tourist attractions in Australia are the nation’s walks. There is something for everyone, no matter how fit or adventurous, inland and coastal walks, challenging treks and easy strolls. Admittedly, as a tourist visiting Australia you have to travel great distances in order to reach your destination, but when you get there it makes sense to stop, take a walk and absorb the beauty of your surrounds.
There are too many great coastal walks to cover in one blog post, but here are three great walks to start with:
Bay of Fires Walk, Tasmania
Tasmania is a treasure chest of natural beauty and one of the standout walks is along the Bay of Fires. The walk takes you through sandy beaches and isolated coves that appear untouched. The crystal clear (and cold) water is contrasted with a rocky headland creating amazing views, photo opportunities a powerful sense of isolation that only Tasmania can create.
Margaret River Cape to Cape Walk, Western Australia
For the dedicated walking enthusiast, the Margaret River Cape to Cape is a multi-day walk spanning beaches, headlands, forests and caves in the lush Western Australian landscape. For a more luxurious twist, travelers can stop off in catered locations to sample local wines and produce while resting their weary legs in comfortable ecolodges overnight.
Bondi to Coogee Walk, Sydney
Far less adventurous and much more convenient, the Sydney to Coogee beach walk is one of the loveliest strolls the city has to offer. This scenic walk will give you an opportunity to leisurely take in the beauty, color and richness of Sydney. The walk winds along the jagged coast starting at Bondi’s Icebergs sea pool, it passes beside glittering bays, dramatic cliffs and sunny beaches and goes on for several kilometers. It’s a great way to see the coast and feel the vibe of the city at the same time.
