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…

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!

From the first point of contact with The Hiking Society, John was super helpful and generous with his advice. The Warburton Day Adventure was a great mix of hiking and general exploring, with lots of information and tips from John through the day. Transport option was so handy too! 10/10 will be a repeat customer 🙂 Thank you!

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.

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.
