Great experience: Beautiful locations and awesome people!
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!
Warburton day hike today: Thanks for a lovely day – great guide, well organised & really enjoyed the group!
Had an awesome hiking experience, would highly recommend it
Fun day hike with Kerrie at Werribee Gorge. I felt she was supportive no matter the level of hiking ability, patient and allowed space for quiet enjoyment which is one goal when hiking! Also, John has been so helpful and communicates generously when prompted. thoroughly recommend!!
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 …
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.
Organised and experienced guides provided a fun and challenging weekend which I would highly recommend.
“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.”
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…

If you’ve been reading the website over the past few days, you’ll notice that I took a trip up to Mushroom Rocks recently and camped overnight with some friends. However, it was ALMOST a trip for one. I’d only been in the car about five minutes when my friend called to let me know there was...Read More

I’ve hiked for years but recently have started doing multi days, often at altitude or changing between mountaineering boots, rock climbing shoes and hiking boots. I‘ll tell you what you...Read More
I was back on the trail again today this time I found myself in amongst the picturesque Lerderderg State Park on the 13 km East Walk and Cowan Track. We began the trail at the O’Briens Crossing camping area. It’s such a nice little spot with plenty of space to camp and for the kids...Read More
