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.
