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!!

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…

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…

Thoroughly enjoyed my first hiking adventure with the hiking society! John is very timely to answer any queries or questions. I took the option of transport which was fantastic & stress-free. Had a great group of hikers of varying levels & I was encouraged & looked out for by John every step of the way. It really felt like I was on a leisurely walk with friends. The scenery was gorgeous (Lerderderg) – I’m signing up for my next hikes now!! Great job! 😁

“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.”

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.

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.

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!

After interviewing Kate Southall about her new company Hiked, and her comments about her clients being slightly scared about what may confront them in the outdoors, it got me thinking. More specifically, it got me thinking about why there are some people who are scared to venture into outdoors. I reshared the article on a bushwalking...Read More
Day two of The Hiking Society MeetUp’s weekend away with the Good Times Tours on the Great Ocean Road, saw us hike from Aire River West to Johanna Beach. A 14-kilometre stretch of trail, this section was much the same as the day before but with weather that wasn’t as harsh. Similar to the day before,...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

But, for us hikers, it’s home to three really awesome, yet challenging, hikes. And one you may...Read More
