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.

huka falls walk
Considered one of the most visited natural attractions in New Zealand, Huka Falls and indeed the Huka Falls Walk is a must if you’re visiting Taupo. Part of the mighty Waikato River, the Huka Falls is a body of intense clear water that emits a blue colour that is a result of the reflecting light...

tawhai falls walk
Without a doubt one of the shortest hikes in the entire Tongariro National Park, the Tawhai Falls Walk is an easy, little meander through mountain beech forest. Beginning at a small car park located 4km below the Tongariro National Park Visitor Centre on SH48, this is an incredibly easy track to follow. I’d also say...

A short 7km walk located in the Whakapapa Village in the Tongariro National Park, the Whakapapanui Track is an incredibly enjoyable walk under the shelter of the forest. Ideally walked as a return walk starting at either at the Whakapapa Village near the holiday park or at an entrance 3km below the village on SH48,...

If the weather turns bad and you’re unable to hike the popular Tongariro Alpine Crossing, a similar alternative would have to be the Tama Lakes Track.

Located in the southern section of the park, and accessible from the ski town of Ohakune, Waitonga Falls is the highest waterfall in the park standing at 39m. Starting on the Ohakune Mountain Road on...

If you’ve come to the Tongariro National Park in New Zealand, one walk you have to do, aside from the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, is the Taranaki Falls Track. And, aside from the Crossing, it’s probably one of the more popular walks in the area given its location to the Whakapapa Village, its distance and its...

Located in the nearby town of Raglan, and in the wider Waikato area of New Zealand, lies the incredibly underrated Bridal Veil Falls. A short walk which also includes three viewing platforms, Bridal Veil Falls is a 55m waterfall that has over time caused a plunge pool at the base of the waterfall. Starting at...

cape woolamai walk
If Bushrangers Bay in the Mornington Peninsula is considered one of the most underrated coastal walks in Victoria, then the Cape Woolamai Walk is not far behind it. First of all, and probably the best part about this walk, it’s accessible in so many ways. There are ample car parks; it’s well-signed which means it’s...
