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.

big pats creek
The first section of the Walk Into History trail in Warburton, Victoria, the return track from Big Pats Creek to Starlings Gap is your typical bushland area. An 18km round trek, the trail is a gentle incline from campground to campground. If you’ve ever been out that way before for a look around, you’ll know...

cathedral ranges southern circuit
If you have ever wondered where the best place in Victoria to go for a day hike is, you can’t go past the Cathedral Ranges. More specifically, the Cathedral Ranges Southern Circuit is a must-do for any hiking enthusiast. Located in Taggerty, some 120 kilometres from Melbourne, the Cathedral Ranges is home to some of...

chatauqua peak
The Chatauqua Peak Loop Walk is yet another reason why you need to visit the Grampians at some point in your life. A fairly simple ascent and descent, this track incorporates side trips to places such as Clematis Falls and starts and ends in the heart of Halls Gap. Beginning at the Halls Gap Oval car...

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...

mushroom rocks
A 45-minute drive north of Moe lies the picturesque Mushroom Rocks in a section of the Baw Baw National Park. As part of the Australian Alpine Walking Track, Mushroom Rocks is also close to Mount Erica and Talbot Peak. Which is where some of the members of The Hiking Society Meetup found themselves last weekend. And...

A track that I believe rivals the Mount St Leonard and Condons Track in terms of difficulty, the Mount Juliet return track is quite the trek. Beginning at the Road 3 management track gate located 7kms outside of Healesville, this 9km trail rises almost a kilometre in elevation from base to summit. One thing is certain...

olinda falls
If you are looking for a shorter alternative to the Olinda Falls and Valley Circuit, then this is the hike for you. Now, you can start this hike from a number of locations, but we decided to start it from the Valley Picnic Ground. Heading down Georges Track (located to the right when you arrive...

This past weekend during my visit to NSW, I was fortunate enough to hike the Otford Coastal Track with The Hiking Society NSW MeetUp group. Described by a former Melburnian as ‘a hike that has terrain unlike anything I have seen in Victoria’, I was a little excited about what lay ahead. And it didn’t...

Located in the popular town of Healesville is the not-so-well-known hiking trail that is the Mount Riddell trail. A 6.5km up and 6.5km back trail, it is pretty much uphill all the way to the summit entrance and then back the same way. I think what I like most about this trail is that it is...

four brothers rocks
Despite there being plenty of tracks in the Bunyip State Park, the Four Brothers Rocks track is without a doubt the most popular hike in the area. Furthermore, the track that myself and some people from the MeetUp group took is really picturesque. It also involves a decent little hill before the rocks, but more...
