Hiking and bushwalking
Witness breathtaking natural scenery at some of Victoria’s most iconic places when you lace up your boots and take to a hiking trail. From alpine mountain peaks to rugged coastal and inland ranges, hiking and bushwalking is a popular nature activity all year round. Be inspired by the spectacular outlook atop Mount Rosea, panoramic views from the Pinnacle Lookout and ancient rock features of the Grand Canyon along the Grampians Peaks Trail. Experience Grampians National Park in all its glory with overnight hiking to remote locations and campgrounds. Alternatively, Alpine National Park offers winding hiking trails along alpine ridges through snow gum woodlands and snow grass plains, over rocky summits and past historic huts, offering an achievable and rewarding hiking challenge with spectacular views every step.
Closer to Melbourne, there are multiple national and state parks with both short and medium distance hiking and bushwalking trails, perfect for a day trip. Choose a track to suit your fitness and experience level in Cathedral Range State Park, experience remote, unspoilt bushland in Lerderderg State Park, or climb to the summit of Mt Donna Buang in Yarra Ranges National Park.
