Day Walks Victoria

By John & Monica Chapman, John Siseman. 

Describes 40 walking areas around Victoria with a total of 96 walk variations. For each walking area, one walk is described in detail and a series of variations based on the main walk are also given if appropriate. Areas covered range from Portland, Grampians, Enfield Forest, Cape Otway, Aireys Inlet, Angelsea, Daylesford, Swan Bay, Point Cooke, Gellibrand Hill, Mt Macedon, Brisbane Ranges, Lysterfield & Churchill Parks, Dandenongs, Cape Schanck, Phillip Island, Mt St Leonard, Fraser National Park, Mt Baw Baw, Alpine National Park and others. For those based in Melbourne, 23 of the walking areas are within day walk distance of Melbourne.

Victoria has experienced several huge bush fires and floods. Some walking areas were severely effected and are still closed to walkers. This second edition has been updated as a result with 7 new walks, and revisions to other walks.

Walks range from 6.2 to 21.4km in length. Grades range from Easy to Hard and the grading is similar to that used by most walking clubs in Victoria hence there is something for everybody. While many of the Easy walks are suitable for families, at the other end of difficulty some of the Hard walks include off-track sections and are intended for experienced walkers.
