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.
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.

Great experience: Beautiful locations and awesome people!
Organised and experienced guides provided a fun and challenging weekend which I would highly recommend.
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!

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 …
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!!
Had an awesome hiking experience, would highly recommend it
