Overnight walks in Victoria

Revel in the natural beauty of Victoria's diverse landscapes by spreading your hiking adventure over several days.

The long road
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.

Shorter stuff
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.

Be prepared
Make sure to prepare for your hike - pack all necessary navigation and camping equipment, bring appropriate clothing and check the local forecast before you leave.
