Awesome 2 days 1 night Grampians hiking with this small group led by John. The Pinnacle circular track was as good as what I expected. What better than a simple BBQ meal served after a long walk.
On the second day, I was not knowing what to expect. It turned out that Mt Rosea track to Sundial Peak was a more challenging one. Since it was forever climbing up with a bit of rock hopping and rock scrambling (so have to stumble a bit during descending – but it was safe). The reward was seeing some a…

I would highly recommend The Hiking Society ++++. It was serendipitous that I booked a guided hike (we did Mt Macedon!!! OMG!). The guide, John, was Ab Fab, cheerful, optimistic 😁 and very supportive – we did climb up & up, to The Cross, then Camel’s Hump, then the lake and up Mt Towrong. The walk info was accurate, John kept perfectly to time, kept me fed, ‘watered’ and rested – the views were a bonus!! John was an excellent source of information, clearly enthusiastic & experienced – which was …

Enjoyed the Werribee Gorge hike with John as our guide. He looked after the group and set a comfortable pace. This is the third hike I’ve done with The Hiking Society. Will be doing more in future.

Wonderful hike with amazing views. Matt was a supportive and confident guide, his enthusiasm for hiking was contagious! Lots of fun rock scrambling, steep inclines and peak hopping which was breathtaking. Thanks for the experience.

Fantastic long weekend spent in the Grampians thanks to The Hiking Society. We had the perfect mix of challenging hikes, beautiful scenery and plenty of relaxation in one of the most gorgeous parts of Victoria. I know I’ll be back for another adventure soon!

Walked this with John on Sunday and really enjoyed the walk! Was so nice to walk along the creek hearing the water run, excellent scenery, company and a few great hills at the end to get the heart pumping! This walk had a bit of everything… would highly recommend.

Had an amazing day hiking the Cathedral Ranges northern circuit with Matt. He was super friendly and a wealth of knowledge about other trails in Victoria. You can tell he truly loves the outdoors and has beautiful photos to prove it! The walk was well organised and ran to time. It really is a spectacular part of Victoria and the hiking society makes this accessible to people with limited experience in the outdoors. Already got my eye on the trip to Mount Beauty 💆🏻♀️ Highly recommend the hiking…

“A great day trip! Warburton was the perfect blend of walking through pristine temperate forests, drinking great coffee and chilling out amongst the giant Redwoods.”

But, for us hikers, it’s home to three really awesome, yet challenging, hikes. And one you may...Read More
This past weekend during my visit to NSW, I was fortunate enough to hike the Otford Coastal Track with The Hiking Society NSW MeetUp group. Described by a former Melburnian as ‘a hike that has terrain unlike anything I have seen in Victoria’, I was a little excited about what lay ahead. And it didn’t...Read More
There is no first prize for getting to the top of the hill or for being the first one back to the trailhead when you are out hiking. I’m sure there are plenty of hikers out there who like to go at a certain pace. Everyone has their preference. However, there are those instances where...Read More
Without a doubt, the Lord of the Rings and, to a lesser extent, The Hobbit, are two film trilogies that I really enjoy for a number of reasons. Hell, I love Lord of the Rings that much that it inspired myself and three friends to head off to New Zealand and replicate the journey that the...Read More
Disclaimer: the owners of the Warburton Motel gave me a nights accommodation in exchange for this review. However, this did not sway my opinion in any way. This past weekend, and in amongst all the hiking I did in Warburton with the MeetUp group, I was invited to stay for a night at the Warburton...Read More
