Hiking Trails/Bushwalking Tracks

Some parks have hiking trails (or bushwalking tracks) within them suitable for groups of keen, experienced bushwalkers. These tracks take you through some breathtakingly beautiful country, but you need to be fit, accustomed to the local weather, and well equipped.

For your safety, don't walk alone on these trails. Walkers are strongly advised to carry some for of emergency communication such as a satellite phone or personal locator beacon. Also be sure to inform a reliable person of your travel plans, including intended time of return.

NT Parks Walk Grading System

To create consistency in Walk Gradings across Australia a National Standard has  been introduced. Northern Territory Parks are upgrading signage and  publications over time to reflect these changes.

The table below may help to explain what these gradings mean to you as a park  visitor and walker and how they are used in our signs and publications.
