Walks Directory

Welcome to Bushwalking Victoria’s Walks Directory.  Here you will find the bushwalks our member clubs believe are among the best available that showcase Victorian bushwalking.  It is by no means intended to be a comprehensive listing of Victoria's bushwalks, these are just some of our clubs' favourites.  There are many dedicated websites and apps available to source walks information, such as Trail Hiking Australia and AllTrails.

Most of the walks in this directory were chosen by clubs to be included in the Bushwalking Victoria annual Federation Walks (FedWalks)  program.

The Federation Walks event is a member-only event hosted by clubs and held annually in a different part of Victoria. The name dates from 1934 when Bushwalking Victoria was known as the Federation of Victorian Bushwalking Clubs. Click for more information on FedWalks.

This Directory predominantly contains day walks.

IMPORTANT:  These walk descriptions were current at the time of the Fedwalks event.  To ensure you have the most current walk details, please cross-check with other walks resources, as listed above.

    Beths Peak

    Follow a well-defined 6 km section of McMillians Walking Track with views over the Moroka River Valley and Snowy Bluff to Beths Saddle and then a relatively short, 500m climb to the top of the rarely visited Beths Peak*. Observant walkers may find exposed volcanic rock beds containing thunder eggs as the MMWT leaves the D4 track. A recent fire through a section of this walk should result in some excellent wildflowers. * Beths Peak is named after Beth Kilpatrick a BCWC member who spent considerable time in this area in the 1980s when John Smith and other club members were re-discovering McMillan’s Track.

    Mt Eliza

    Views and more views. The Licola Wilderness Village, our accommodation centre, is visible from the high ridge of the Glenfalloch Station grazing paddocks. Mount Ligar “The Crinoline”, FedWalks 2021 signature peak, is ever present on the north eastern skyline. The casuarina forest is a feature on the slopes of the steep descent at the end of this hike. Its pine needle like leaves make the descent more challenging.

    Neilson Crag

    A feature of this walk are the beautiful trees that reach for the sky along the four-wheel drive track, the magnificent escarpment views of the rocky outcrops including The Watch Tower and Neilson Crag. The views down the valleys and across the mountains are breath taking. This walk enters the Mount Darling - Snowy Bluff Wilderness Zone.

    Wellington Plains

    This walk crosses Wellington Plain with low heath, grasses, and occasional snow gum corpses. Turning east at Moroka Gap headwaters of the Moroka River to the north and Nigothurok Creek and the Wellington River to the south), we climb through woodlands onto the ridge overlooking the Avon Wilderness. On the ridgeline is the massive stone cairn on the top of Mt Wellington after which the shire is named. Fabulous views.

    Mt Reynard

    A very pleasant walk (20% 4WD track, 80% footpad) through alpine country of open plain and snowgums with, subject to the weather, good views across the High Plains. Mt Reynard is the most southerly peak in Australia above 1700m.

    McMillans #1 – Mt Arbuckle to Dingo Hill Track

    The entire walk is on the McMillan Walking Track. It demonstrates the diversity of the environment from climbing through Alpine Ash forest, crossing snow plains of button grass, a section of 4WD track before reentering forest to follow old logging tracks to a second snow plain.

    Arbuckle to Kellys Hut

    Climbing initially through an Alpine Ash forest, the walk then crosses a snow plain where wildflowers are a feature. It then descends through Snow Gum and Candlebark forest to Holmes Plain and Kellys Hut, an old cattleman’s hut built in 1934. The walk follows McMillans Walking Track.

    Mt Howitt

    An iconic alpine walk through snowgum woodlands and alpine meadows ending above the tree line at Mt Howitt with spectacular views of Mt Hotham, the Crosscut Saw, Mt Speculation and Terrible Hollow.
