The Great Walks Feb-Mar issue is out now and on its way to subscribers and newsagents.

The theme is New Horizons and we showcase some of the best must-do walks for 2021.

How about Tassie's Port Davey Track; Lord Howe Island, 600km off NSW or WA's famed Cape to Cape Track?

Or maybe Australia's 10 highest mainland peaks, all situated in Kosciuszko National Park?

We also search for a WWII bomber that crashed in South East Qld in 1955?

"Some say the hike up Mount Superbus to reach the wreck of a Lincoln Bomber is haunted, " writes Marcel Rulli.

"It's certainly a difficult trek and there's an eerie feeling being surrounded by the thick vines and near impenetrable forest. The mountain seems to place obstacles every time a new hiker sets out to look for the wreck. We tried, we searched, we found it and we think some of those beliefs may be true."

In our Walksmart section we test out eight of the best two-person tents on the market, show you some great DIY trailmix recipes and looks at some excellent alpine hiking gear.

But that's not all!

We also head overseas to experience Germany's unsung pilgrim walk, the Franconian Hiking traiT and explore Nepal's famous Annapurna Circuit.

We reckon you'll find plenty of inspiring stories in this issue of Great Walks so make sure you score a copy!
