Return hikes and trails

A return hike, also known as an out-and-back hike, is the most straightforward type of hiking trail. Unlike circuit or one-way hikes, it takes you on a single path that starts and finishes at the same location. Think of it like walking down a straight line and then turning back to come home the same way. Find the best return hikes in Australia here.
