Had an awesome hiking experience, would highly recommend it
Warburton day hike today: Thanks for a lovely day – great guide, well organised & really enjoyed the group!
Wow! What a weekend! Stunning scenery, great walks with awesome swimming holes, a phenomenal sunset location and knowledgeable and supportive guides; it was a fantastic introduction to the Alpine Region of Victoria. If you love being out in nature, you will love this trip.
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!
“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.”
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!!

Great experience: Beautiful locations and awesome people!

Despite the fact that Warburton is one of my favourite hiking places in Victoria, the Ada Tree Walk has eluded me for some time. But, after this weekend, this Grade 2 walk eludes me no longer. I had the pleasure of leading the MeetUp group’s first parents and kids hike for 2018 along this 3.5km...Read More
Long considered one of Victoria’s popular tourist destinations, the Great Ocean Road is also home to some of Victoria’s most spectacular hiking tracks. As someone who will be heading down there in a few weeks with The Hiking Society MeetUp and Good Times Tours, I was stoked to receive the Visitor’s Guide to the Best...Read More
If you have them, camping and hiking with kids is an experience I think every parent should have at least once in their lifetime. As a father of two daughters, I’ve taken them camping and hiking and they have thoroughly enjoyed it. However, it can be a little tricky to organise yourself as well as...Read More
In a first for The Hiking Society MeetUp, we hosted our first parents and kids hike by walking the Ringwood Lake Circuit Walk. The walk, a 1.2km circuit around the lake itself, was, as intended, a much easier and more laid back walk than we have previously. Starting from the north-east car park located off Mount...Read More
