Meander along quiet beaches and explore rainforest, teeming with wildlife. Hike up granite slopes, walk to misty waterfalls and on through rugged coastal hinterland. Victoria's national parks offer a range of short day walks, suitable for families and the casual hiker.
Take in views of the waterfall from the elevated viewing platform on the Triplet Falls Rainforest Walk in the Great Otway Park. Experience the diverse landscapes of Shelly Beach on a stroll through fern gullies, coastal scrub, beach and rocky platforms. Or, for a dose of mountain air, head on up to the High Country for amazing views from Mt Bogong and Mt Buffalo.
Set aside a few days to enjoy long distance walks like the Australian Alps Walking Track, The Great South West Walk or the Great Ocean Walk. Take on the whole distance or choose from a range of shorter sections to suit your itinerary. Enjoy panoramic views, visit quaint towns and villages, and explore the beaches, forests and landmarks along the way.
Travellers with a little less time will love the Bluff Trail along Howqua River, where commercial tour operators run horse-riding trips to the Bluff. For a bushwalking experience talking in wild rivers, ancient snow gums and rainforests, strap on your boots and hit the Mitchell River Walking Track or Great Walhalla Alpine Trail.
