Built to honour the men who fought and died on the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea in World War II, the 1,000 Steps walk is a steep pilgrimage representative of the Golden Staircase on the Kokoda Track. The five-kilometre uphill hike includes 776 steps (no, there aren’t actually 1,000) that pass through ferns and manna gums. The steps attract fitness fanatics looking to challenge themselves and take approximately two hours for people of moderate fitness level.
Set to become Australia’s largest outdoor gallery, the Silo Art Trail is a series of six decommissioned wheat silos that have been repurposed as colossal murals. Towering over the Victoria’s Wimmera/Mallee region, the trail will stretch more than 200 kilometres and will link some of the state’s smallest towns, including Rupanyup, Sheep Hills, Brim, Rosebery, Lascelles and Patchewollock.
