Forget the freeze-dried food and the sleeping bags. We’ve found three great luxury walks to try in Bruny Island, near Alice Springs and in the Blue Mountains.
Classic Larapinta Trek In Comfort, Northern Territory
Snaking through the striking red mountains west of Alice Springs, the 223 kilometre Larapinta Trail is the Central Australian walk. This luxury version from Australian Walking Holidays tackles the best bits of the West MacDonnell Ranges over six days (think glamping tents with hot showers).
Bruny Island Long Weekend, Tasmania
Clinging to Tasmania’s southeast coast, Bruny Island has an abundance of fresh produce including oysters, beer and cheese. These five-to-six hour walks from Tasmanian Walking Company double as an excuse to sample the best of it.
Blue Mountains Grand Traverse, New South Wales
This three-day walk from Auswalk combines the best short trails in the Blue Mountains national parks. You’ll just need to decide whether to swim in the waterfalls during the day or the pool at the 4.5 star hotel at night.
