Do you love hiking, nature and the outdoors more generally? Do you want to meet more like-minded people YOUR age?


Well here it is - a group and community for young people aged between 18 and 35 from Melbourne & regional Victoria, with a common interest in hiking & the outdoors more broadly.   We are positive, pro-active and passionate.

Above all, we recognise that our special places enrich and shape us and therefore should be treated with respect and admiration.   That means we follow the 'Leave no trace' bushwalking principles at all times to minimise our impact on the places we visit.  That also means we encourage creative non-intrusive ways that capture the beauty of those places, including photography and videography.

We warmly welcome and include all who share this common interest for hiking and respect for our special places.

Beginner, intermediate or experienced - it doesn't matter!   In our program, we include a healthy mix of easier shorter walks / activities to longer day and overnight hikes where there is interest.   This program includes a series of semi-regular training hikes that allows beginners to train up to more difficult hikes and achieve their nominated health and wellbeing goals.   Hiking is shown to have significant benefits to achieving both mental and physical health outcomes.


As an open and inclusive group, we strive to ensure events that are organised meet the differing desires from different members.



Join and get involved today it you’re looking forward to meeting some amazing like-minded people in some very special places.
