Millimetre-sized walking droplets that emerge on the surface of a vertically vibrating liquid bath can exhibit certain features that were previously thought to be exclusive to the microscopic quantum realm. This thesis investigates a new class of walking droplets, coined superwalkers, and also studies the rich dynamical behaviour of droplets in a generalised pilot-wave framework. Insights from this research may help further our understanding in the areas of hydrodynamic quantum analogues and active matter.
