The Dec-Jan issue of Great Walks is back from the printers and on its way to subscribers and newsagents!

The theme for the issue is 'New Walks/New You', where we showcase some of the best new walking trails and tours coming in 2020.

Our first big story is a world exclusive feature on the brand new Bondi to Manly Walk that showcases Sydney's gorgeous harbour and natural beauty.

This 80km/4day walk includes many highlights and as our writer Tara Wells says: "The most surprising thing about starting the walk from see-and-be-seen Bondi Beach is how quickly I leave behind the hubbub.

“And how soon there is a reminder that I’m walking on what was and always will be Aboriginal land. Millennia-old aboriginal carvings depicting sea life and spiritual figures sit high on a sandstone plateau surrounded by golf course and a heritage-listed sewer ventilation tower.

“The track sticks to a green belt between houses and dramatic sandstone cliffs. Passing historic Macquarie Lighthouse leads on to Watsons Bay. The highlight here is not the picturesque fish-and-chip village itself, but 360° views over the city and Pacific Ocean from Gap Bluff."

Other new walks included in the issue are Western Sydney's Great West Walk that goes from Parramatta to the Blue Mountains; the Snowies Iconic Walk; Tassie's Trans Tarkine Track and NZ's latest Great Walk, the Paparoa Track.

We also show you how to care for your knees – because without good knees you're not going far!

And our Christmas Gift Guide is the perfect place to find a present for your outdoor loving loved ones.
