For the ultimate getaway, there's nothing like going on a long-distance walk through some of Australia's rugged and remote wilderness regions. Apart from the fact it's a cheap holiday, it's also great exercise and gives you the time and personal space to reflect on your life and goals.

Have you ever done any long distance hikes here in Australia, and if so, which ones have you done? How long did they take and would you recommend them to others? Are there hiking cabins or do you need to bring all your own equipment?

Wouldnt really know, I'm afraid. - long distance walking isn't a pastime I'd enjoy!
The Bibbulmun Track, from Kalamunda (outside Perth) down to Albany on the south coast of WA is apparently really amazing, although it takes a couple of months to complete. There are campsites along the way with small rustic huts to shelter walkers, although it's usually recommended to take your own gear, just in case they're full.

Most people just do shorter legs of the walk (just day walks or perhaps a week at a time) but a few intrepid explorers do the whole thing in one go. WA's south-west is awesome, so this walk is highly recommended.

Other long-distance walks are the famous overland trail in Tasmania, the Alpine trail (NSW and Victoria) and the Mackay Islands Great Walk. There are plenty of others, too...just look online!
Whoops....I meant to write, the Mackay Highlands...not the Mackay Islands in the above comment!
The 6 day Overland Track in Tasmania would have to be one of our best walks, beginning at Cradle Mt and passing through some stunning high country.

I did part of that one when I was in my late teens. Beautiful....
Wilsons Promontory in Victoria has the best long distance walks for sure. The most stunning scenery and magnificent wildlife. I highly recommend everyone visit.
I went bushwalking there as a child, with my family, and loved it.
Did a 25klm walk in Barrington Tops NP one day. That area is just soooooo beautiful.

There're many long walks which can be done, comfortably, throughout our magnificent land.

Just 'Google' or check with NPWS of State you wish to visit.
