Amit - Mount Beauty Overnight Adventure
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!
Amelia - Grampians 3-Day Adventure
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!

“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.”
Jess - Warburton Day Adventure
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.

Carla - Grampians 2-Day Adventure
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! 😁
Emma - East Walk & Cowan Track Day Adventure
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.

How much water is too much when you’re in the outdoors? In my opinion, there’s no such thing as too much. With the temperatures set to rise here in Australia over the next 6 months, I thought it would be useful to discuss just how important water is when venturing into the outdoors in the...Read More
On a day where the weather looked like it wasn’t going to be so good, The Hiking Society MeetUp group took to the track from Silvan Reservoir Picnic Ground to the Valley Picnic Ground and back again. Located on the outskirts of Silvan, the reservoir picnic ground is a great place for people to visit...Read More
Despite the fact that I have driven past Lysterfield Lake Park just about a million times, I’ve never been in there to go hiking. That has all since changed after I recently hiked the Dargon Track in the northern section of the park. What really grabbed my attention roughly 5 minutes into this near-on 7km...Read More
On the same day I was able to wander the Tongue Point return trail in Wilsons Prom, I also had the opportunity to visit the popular location known as The Big Drift. A seemingly vast sand field smack bang in the middle of coastal bushland area, The Big Drift is a fantastic 4km, Grade 3...Read More
In what can only be described as sweltering conditions, The Hiking Society MeetUp Group spent last Sunday walking the Olinda Creek Walking Track. Starting at the Silvan Overflow Car Park, this 9.8km return hike led us along a simple path to the Mount Evelyn Recreation Reserve. The car park is located opposite to the Silvan Reservoir...Read More
