The Great Walks Annual is out now!
The theme of the Annual is 'Backcountry and beyond' which means we get off the beaten track with this issue. From Barron Gorge NP in FNQ to SA's Walk the Yorke and from Tassie's glorious Mount Anne to the Yuraygir Coastal Walk in northern NSW we showcase some of Australia’s greatest walks you've (possibly) never heard of.
We also follow in the footsteps of Japan's mystical shogun on the Nakasendo Way.
As for gear, we preview a dozen top day packs – and tell you what you should to carry in them. We also show you how to care for your sleeping bag and tent – two of your biggest outdoor gear expenses.
And make sure you enter the issue's competition, which is a guided walking holiday to Japan!
