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.

Whether it be the Grampians, Wilsons Prom, Great Ocean Road, the Victorian High Country, the Dandenongs, Yarra Valley, or anywhere else around the state, there is something in here for everyone of all hiking abilities.

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.

Furthermore, as each hike is tracked using WikiLoc, you’ll be able to click through to The Hiking Society WikiLoc account at the end of each track blog and take a further look at the stats.

You’ll also be able to download the trail should you be using the WikiLoc app yourself.

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 hiking tracks in Victoria that some people may have never heard of.

Furthermore, there are also a few adventure guides available to you which encompass most, if not all, the hikes available to do in that area.

These include the Dandenongs, Marysville and Warburton.

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

As always, if you ever have any questions about any of the hikes, feel free to send me an enquiry via our Contact Form.

Some times you needn’t travel too far from home for an adventure 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 hiking, running, adventure racing, mountain bike riding,...

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 had visited Keppel Hut itself some 4 years ago during preparation for my first trip to New Zealand, but we had hiked there from...

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...

It’s home to places such as Healesville Sanctuary, Beechworth Bakery, Innocent Bystander, and the Four Pillars Gin Distillery to name a few. But, for us hiking groups in Victoria, it’s home to three really awesome, yet challenging, Healesville hikes....

dargon track
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...

In just over 16kms, and around 6 hours worth of hiking, the Scenic Rim track effectively skirts around the Lerderderg River taking in some incredible views...
