BEAUTIFUL VIEWS, clean fresh air and an enthusiastic group to share the hiking experience is a great way to spend the day!
We are a group that is geared towards medium and above type hikes so members need to have a good fitness level and some bushwalking experience. Since 2007 our hikes have varied from local hikes around the Dandenongs, Lerderderg Gorge, Yarra Ranges and the Otways to multi-day hikes in the Vic Alps, Grampians, as well as the Blue and Snowy Mountains in Australia. We occasionally plan overseas walks with some of the Great Walks in New Zealand amongst them.
Our members range over all different ages and nationalities, locals as well as visitors from overseas. Our aim is to have a minimum of 1 hike per month, but in summer usually more frequent - hikes fall predominantly on weekends.
The organizers are all enthusiastic amateur hikers that volunteer their time for the group. We like to give everyone in the group a chance to get on the hikes planned therefore we like to keep this group to a manageable level of 300 members. It is important to us that members are active within the group with ideas for hikes and as such if you have not been on any walks within 6 months of joining you are assumed to be not interested and will be removed. :)
If you have any hikes you'd like to do, please let one of the organizers know, we are always keen for people to be active in the group. If you think you'd like to be an organizer or would like help organizing a hike with us let us know.
To join the group please have a recognizable picture of yourself when you apply. No recognizable picture will result in your application being rejected.
We do hope you enjoy being a part of our group and hope to see you on the trail with us sometime soon. :o)
