I have a pair of trekking shoes (trainer style, but waterproof and with a bit more support) and a pair of sandals with ankle support (because i have one very dodgy ankle - otherwise a pair of flipflops would do) and that covers me for everything. If your only going to be in hot places, you can probably get by without "real" footwear, but in most places you will at least want that option. If your mainly doing more basic trekking, trainers can be fine. Walking boots are too large and not as multiuseable for my liking, so i don`t bother with them unless on serious trekking.

Whatever you get, buy them a good coupel of months+ before you leave, so that they are well worn in before you go, or you will be in hell for a while with blisters...

Im on my rtw trip now, and have a pair of Merrell walking sandals & a pair of Salomon walking trainers. They were both well bedded in before I left, and I use them both equally. If I had space I would have a pair of flip flops as some floors/showers are a bit dodgy - in some hostels...but I dont so I havent!

You can buy cheap rubber thongs/sandals in Bali - in fact buy a few pairs, they will last your trip to Bali/Oz/Fiji and beyond.

Depending on what you want to do in Australia, I'd bring a pair of shoes for going out, sandals/birkenstocks for walking around and running shoes/hiking boots for bushwalks, etc.

cheers,
mags
