Set in the rain forest, the Great Walk is a challenge for those who are fitter. A 26km walk back to Airlie beach, up and down some interesting ranges. There are some also some very nice shorter walks for the less active.

This walk is good for a little adventure or a day out, although do not forget your mosquito spray and be aware that you may sight a few of natures babies. My partner and I did the Wompoo Walk which was enough for me not...More
