About The Hiking Society
Not only do we offer day, overnight, private, multi-day, and, very soon, international adventures, but we also provide the transport and overnight gear to make the outdoors that little bit more accessible for you. We can certainly appreciate that transport and camping gear can be a hurdle to overcome when you first start camping (all of our guides have been in the same position!), so we want to make it as easy as possible for you to come along and enjoy an adventure. Our team of experienced and knowledgeable guides will be on hand to assist you every step of the way, not only with guiding you through the many trails we’ll be heading to but our knowledge of the areas too. Regardless if you are a beginner hiker, weekend warrior, hardcore outdoor enthusiast, or somewhere in amongst all of that, we are confident that an adventure with us will be an adventure of a lifetime.

It was like seeing the best of the region - everything was so beautiful! It was a really good combo of easy hiking, waterfalls, gorges, and chilling watching the sunset from Mount Buffalo. I 100% recommend this trip, it was SO much fun!

I recently returned from the Mt Beauty hiking weekend, John was punctual professional and very personable. This adventure is accessible for anyone wanting to explore Baw Baw or Mt Beauty in a safe friendly environment. John provided yummy food including special diet preferences. Tents and sleeping bags were very clean and hygienic. I really enjoyed meeting new people and exploring this region. Thank you Hiking Society!

This was my first outing with the Hiking Society and I was impressed by the walks and organisation. Team leader John was friendly, well prepared and knowledgeable about the areas we visited. We did 3 walks in the Warburton area and their difficulty was as advertised. The food organised by the group was substantial and it was nice having morning coffee at a coffee shop in the town. The groups are small - max 10 people and minimum 5 which means you get to chat with everyone. I recommend this group if you live in Melbourne or visiting. The other beauty is they will pick you up in the centre of Melbourne if you don't have your own transport or don't want to use your own :)

What a great hike we had at Mount Macedon with the hiking society! John and Matt are very friendly ,and well knowledgeable guides. We definitely felt welcomed, and safe with them. The lunch ,and snacks they arranged was so good as well.. unfortunately I had a sudden pain in my knee while walking! They had pain killers ready ,and John was very accommodating, and understanding he took me back to my car, and saved me an extra hour of walking in pain. Overall it was a great experience, highly recommend group and i can't wait for our next hike with them.
