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.

Starting at the Rollasons Falls Picnic Area, the well-formed track winds its way down to a t-intersection; heading left to the upper falls and right to the lower...

mount beauty gorge walk
If there’s one thing that is a constant with the outdoors, it’s that it’s constantly surprising me. And this was certainly the case with the Mount Beauty Gorge Walk in the Victorian Alpine National Park. I’m definitely one of those people who will enjoy the hike regardless of the kilometres awaiting me. However, this 5.9km...

the ada tree
Despite the fact that Warburton is one of my favourite hiking places in Victoria, the Ada Tree Walk has eluded me for some time. But, after this weekend, this Grade 2 walk eludes me no longer. I had the pleasure of leading the MeetUp group’s first parents and kids hike for 2018 along this 3.5km...

42 Traverse
The second of three main trails we hiked during our time in New Zealand, the 42 Traverse was a 2-day walk through the quiet Tongariro Forest. Often used by 4WDs, hunters, mountain bikers, motorbikes, horse riders, and fishermen, the 42 Traverse is also used by hikers; particularly those who are hiking the Te Araroa trail....

mount rosea
Before the weekend, I had only visited the Grampians once but it is fast becoming a favourite place of mine to go hiking. The first of two hikes saw 10 of us from The Hiking Society MeetUp group hike just under 10kms to Mount Rosea. The peak is a smidge past 1000m in elevation and the...
