  • Great place to come for some rugged adventuring. The long circuit walk in an anticlockwise direction takes about 3 hours including stops for photos and a picnic lunch at the Riverside. Bring your bath...  more »
  • Only 50km from Melbourne Werribee Gorge give you a great place for bush walking and also a good spot for a picnic. There are long drop toilets there, plus picnic tables and open fire bbq’s (BYO wood) ...  more »
  • This is a lovely 10km hike with great views, just outside of Melbourne. Why go to Kakadu if you have it on your doorstep. Seriously, I have been to Kakadu and even the best walks there do not match th...  more »

  • A very enjoyable place to hike, climb and enjoy the scenery suitable for all levels of Fitness and can easily be done in less than 3 hours. it's always a place I recommend to people visiting Melbourne as it is only one hour away but feels like a different world there always is a new adventure everytime you go, an absolute favourite of mine and so serene. Be sure to get there early, as the general public flock to get here on the weekend, and once you come here, you will understand why. Thank me later
  • A Hidden Gem. Awesome walk around the Gorge, did the circuit track last weekend and it was one of the best walks I have done in Australia. There are parts where you have to hold on to a metal rope to go across the rocks but they are not that hard. The hike is rated med-hard but I would say its about medium. We did the hike in reverse and was good because we escaped most of the sun. There might be some small snakes as well but would obviously stay out of the way.
  • I love this place! It's out of the way from the hustle and bustle from the highway. I went rock climbing with a friend at Falcons lookout. It was a bit of a walk and terrain was a bit rocky. I'd advise a good pair of runners or hiking boots. A beautiful view from the lookout and some easy to set up climbs. If wanting to walk to Falcons lookout you need to come in off Ironbark road otherwise you well find yourself on the wrong side of the gorge.
  • Picturesque and pleasant place to go for a photo, a hike or just to stop off if your just driving that way on a road trip. You can swim at certain points, do the long or short circuit... But the long circuit is fairly long at 9km to 10km... So bring lots of water and be aware it's a moderately challenging hike. 2 things to be careful of, the signage is a little vague at times, so take care and download an offline map... Or check out the posted maps in key areas. The other issue is there doesn't seem to be anywhere near to get water, so pack plenty of your own. Overall a great place to go for a wander.
  • It is a beautiful location and an adventurous hike so note the following: -the path is rocky and uneven. Hiking boots recommended. - no water, so pack lots -the path isn't super well signed so communicate with other travellers, download a map before hand. -be prepare for some scrabbling over rocks.
