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.

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...

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...

The great thing about Olinda, and the RJ Hamer Arboretum, is that there are so many tracks and trails to walk. You can literally make up whatever track you want. Last weekend, I took a group out from the Meetup group to walk from the Valley Picnic Ground to Eagles Nest Picnic Ground and back....

keppel lookout
Without a doubt, the jewel in the crown of hiking in the Marysville area would have to be the Keppel Lookout via Steavenson Falls trail. A near-on 15km hike, it takes in some amazing views of the surrounding Marysville area via Keppel Lookout. As well as some of the main attractions in town – Steavenson...

If there is one thing I love about the Dandenong Ranges, it’s its many amazing hikes that are available to us. This weekend I was able to spend a couple of hours with a great group from The Hiking Society MeetUp hiking the Sassafras Circuit. This is a hike that can be done a number of...
