Topargee Team’s Top Hikes in Australia

There’s nothing quite like going for a walk in nature to ground and reconnect you with what really matters. Our team is quite an active bunch and we’ve hiked in different destinations across Australia. We thought we’d share a few of our favourites with the hope that they inspire you to pull your hiking boots on and get out there!

  1. Kings Canyon Rim, Watarrka National Park, Northern Territory

Distance: 6 kilometre loop

Difficulty: Grade 4, moderate-difficult

Duration: 3-4 hours

A couple of hours drive north from Uluru, the Kings Canyon Rim track is a feast for the senses. After a steep 500 step climb to the rim, you’ll be greeted with breathtaking views of colourful rock formations and a surprising amount of greenery. Topargee co-owner, Danielle says, “It’s like no place I have visited before and it’s impressive from every vantage point.” Make sure you set off early to avoid the heat and take plenty of water.

  1. Twin Falls Circuit, Springbrook National Park, Queensland

Distance: 4 kilometres loop

Difficulty: Grade 3, moderate

Duration: 2 hours

This family-friendly hike is one of the most popular tracks at Springbrook National Park and it’s easy to see why. Topargee team member, Damian, shares, “There are so many ancient trees, it’s like looking up at skyscrapers. It’s green all year round and the air is so fresh and clean. Along the way you’ll reach the Twin Falls where you can walk behind cascading waterfalls that seem to be coming from the sky.”

  1. Bushranger Bay & Cape Schanck, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

Distance: 13 kilometres one way

Difficulty: Grade 3, moderate

Duration: 4-5 hours

Featuring some of the best coastal scenery near Melbourne, our Social Media Manager, Codie, describes this hike as a visual wonderland. “Every stretch is more scenic than the last with changing landscapes that evolve from sandy beaches and cliffs, to crashing waves and the wide open bay.” This is a popular hiking spot so be sure to leave early to avoid the crowds.

  1. Devil’s Slide, Porongurup National Park, Western Australia

Distance: 5 kilometres

Difficulty: Grade 4, moderate-difficult

Duration: 2-3 hours

Topargee team member, Rochelle, has beautiful childhood memories associated with hikes in and around Porongurup National Park. She loves Devil’s Slide in particular for its rocky terrain and the incredible views from the top of one of the highest peaks of the Porongurup Ranges. On a clear day you’ll be able to see the Indian Ocean to the south and Stirling Ranges to the north.

  1. Eastern Sherbrooke Forest Walk, Dandenong Ranges National Park, Victoria

Distance: 7.1 kilometre loop

Difficulty: Grade 3

Duration: 2-3 hours

When you step foot into Sherbrooke Forest it feels like you have gone back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Ferns cover the forest floor and old trees line the track. This is one of Topargee blogger Megan's favourite hikes because you’re almost guaranteed to be greeted by the unusual song of the amazing lyre birds that call the forest home.

  1. Spit to Manly, Northern Beaches, New South Wales

Distance: 10 kilometres one way

Difficulty: Grade 3, moderate

Duration: 3.5-4 hours

Kylie, Topargee’s co-founder, is a fan of this hike because it takes you through bush, beaches, hidden coves, past Indigenous carvings and more! It’s a great way to get up close and personal with Sydney’s natural beauty. Kylie’s recommendation is that you stop for a swim and grab a bite in Manly at the end.
