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.

pound bend circuit
Sometimes the most underrated hikes are located in places that you frequent often but have never had the opportunity to really look into. And that’s exactly what I found with the Pound Bend Circuit in the Warrandyte State Park. Not only that but it is an excellent hike for beginner hikers or for parents who...

Located amongst the green ferns below the Black Spur, the Morley’s Walking Track can be started from either Fernshaw or Dom Dom Saddle Picnic Ground. For the...

tanglefoot loop
Located in the Toolangi State Forest, the Tanglefoot Loop is a track like any other that you might find in the Yarra Valley area. And by that, I mean well-formed, well-marked, and full of stunning Mountain Ash and Myrtle Beech trees. There are two car parks you can start this hike from – the Wirrawilla...

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.

After spending several days in New Zealand forests, which included the Timber Trail and the 42 Traverse, we entered the volcanic area of the Tongariro National Park. The park itself, home to the...

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...
