Easy:  8 – 12 km.  Walking on formed tracks through level or gently undulating terrain.  Typically 12 km would take 4 – 5 hours walking at a relaxed pace.

Medium:  10 -16 km.  Walking on formed or well marked tracks.  May include short off track sections and/or some climbs and descents.  Typically 16 km would take 5- 6 hours (walking time).  Applies to shorter walks in more difficult terrain and longer walks in easier terrain.

Hard:  12 – 20 km.  Walking on and off tracks through undulating terrain with sustained climbs and descents.  May involve rough terrain, thick scrub and/or rock scrambling.  Typically 20 km would take 6 to 8 hours (walking time).  Applies to walks with a shorter distance but with difficult terrain or long walks which are less difficult.
