    Extending for 650 kilometres from Walhalla to Canberra, the Australian Alps Walking Track is a challenging walk for experienced bushwalkers. Much of the trail is through national parks and it traverses both mountain forests and high plains. As most parts of the track are far away from towns, walkers need to be self-reliant.
