In case the top 10 aren’t enough, here’s another five that almost made it!

Twin Falls to Koolpin Creek, Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory
This five-day, one-way walk explores the Arnhem Land Plateau with its rock art, majestic sandstone terraces, waterfalls and placid waterholes. One drawback is that permits are required and can be hard to come by if you’re not part of a commercial group.

Budawangs circuit walk, Morton National Park, NSW
I’ll leave it to the Dalys; ‘A combination of towering sandstone cliffs, massive bluffs and sheer-sided plateaus, all with excellent views, makes the Budawangs one of the most spectacular bushwalking destinations in NSW. This 37 km, four-day walk starts at Long Gully and visits Castle Saddle, Monolith Valley, Mt Owen, Seven Gods Pinnacles, The Castle and Byangee Mountain.’

Wilsons Promontory Southern Circuit, Victoria
One of Victoria’s most popular parks sports one of the country’s best coastal walks, a four-day circuit across granite headlands taking in sandy bays, beautiful beaches and diverse vegetation communities.

West coast, Tasmania
It depends if you like it long or really long; this walk was suggested by both John Chapman and Siseman, although in variations ranging from 12 to 28 days. This is a long but relatively easy walk along an isolated and beautiful coastline.

Gammon Gorges, South Australia
Quentin Chester sticks up for the otherworldy walking of SA; ‘Whether you take the high road and traverse the plateau or bob and weave among the craggy gorges, this enclave offers the most compelling extended walking in the Flinders Ranges.’ Remote, gorge-filled and gorgeous.
