Directory of Bushwalks across Victoria

Welcome to Bushwalking Victoria's Directory of Bushwalks.  The bushwalks featured in this directory have been provided by Bushwalking Victoria member clubs.  Before undertaking any walk listed in this directory please ensure you read the Disclaimer and Information for Walkers.

Fire Danger Period

During the high fire danger period that generally applies from November to March, bushwalkers should avoid forest areas when a Total Fire Ban is declared, and should cancel any planned walks on any Code Red day.  All w2w walks include details of the fire ban region as used by the Bureau of Meterology and the CFA. Bushwalkers are also encouraged to downlaod and use the Fire Ready app on their smartphone that provides access to timely, relevant and tailored warnings and information.

Before undertaking any walk in a national or state park, bushwalkers are strongly encouraged to check the Parks Victoria web site for details of local closures or access restrictions.  Each w2w walk includes a link to the applicable park on the Parks Victoria web site.
