Tracks & Trails

Looking for somewhere to hike on a weekend or perhaps during the week? You’ve come to the right place. Below is what I consider to be some of the very best hiking tracks in Victoria.

Each track report includes¬†information pertaining to distance, difficulty level, track information, highlights, as well as some images that will give you an idea about to expect. But, let’s face it, there’s nothing like getting out there and experiencing it first-hand.

Whilst I have tried to include the best hiking tracks in Victoria, I have also tried to include some other not so well-known tracks that some people may have never heard of.

This section of the website will be never ending as there will always be a hiking track in Victoria to be explored.

Just when I thought I knew most of the tracks in the area, up pops one that I’ve driven past a million times – The Tan Track in the Dandenong Ranges. Not to be confused with the track of a similar name located in Melbourne’s Botanical Gardens, the Tan Track is located in Ferny Creek...

They say that sometimes you needn’t travel too far from home to find the adventure you are looking for. And this certainly rang true for me when I explored the Lysterfield Lake Circuit Trail in Melbourne’s outer east. Lysterfield Lake itself is a fairly well-known, and often visited, location for a variety of activities including...

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...

It finally happened! After five years of hiking, I have finally made my way to Wilsons Prom – or the Prom as it’s affectionately known as. And whilst I wasn’t there for very long, my first experience in this outdoor wonderland was hiking the trail to Tongue Point. Located a short 10-15 minute drive from...

Despite the fact that it’s most popular during the ski season, Lake Mountain is still home to some fantastic hiking trails which includes the near-on 15km Keppel Hut Return Trail.

I’d like to think we’ve done most of the hikes out in Warburton but one that has always eluded me has been Mount Little Joe. But, now, I can cross that one off the list! There are a couple of ways that this tough, little cookie can be done but for the purpose of this...
