Enjoy Valentine's Day - Bushwalking style!
Romance is in the air with Valentine's Day around the corner, so why not pop on your hiking boots, pack a backpack filled with delicious morsels (and a rose perhaps), and take a hike with spectacular views on the way! Here are five easy and short bushwalking hikes in beautiful areas in Victoria:
Drive to Anglesea and follow the Great Ocean Road towards Aireys Inlet. Make sure to time your walk with low tide. The walk goes along the beach to Split Point near Airey's Inlet, then returns via the clifftops to the start point.
The beaches and rock shelves between Urquhart Bluff and Split Point Lighthouse provide excellent walking and wonderful views at low tide. Rock formations, colourful cliffs, coastal views from water level, clifftop panoramas, rock pools and coastal heathland provide contrast and variety along this very scenic section of coastline.
A short but delightful nature walk along Dickson's Creek to the falls with a spectacular view over Buckland Valley. The sub-alpine plant communities and masses of wildflowers are a highlight in late summer.
A hike for great views over the volcanic plains! This circuit walk explores the slopes of Flinders Peak in You Yangs Regional Park. The undulating track includes some short steep sections as it weaves its way around and between granite boulders.
A pleasant walk through natural bushland with views over the Westernport and Port Phillip Bays, a secluded dam in a hidden valley and vineyards.
Enjoy a walk through the alpine meadows and visit the Wallace and Cope Huts with views across the National Park at several places. It's an easy walk with a lot of history.
