Walking Holidays in Australia
A guided walking holiday in Victoria can offer the most delicious escape from a world in which our time is seemingly swallowed up by the modern rush and demanding latest technologies. On a hiking tour you have time to stop and study the landscape, you are close enough to nature to marvel at its many wonders, the surroundings are so peaceful you can hear yourself think and the clean fresh air fills you with life and energy.
A walking holiday in Australia's Victorian High Country gives you a wonderful taste of life in the wilderness whilst the area is easily accessible from major cities like Melbourne or Canberra. If you come to the High Country for a day walk there are a host of other activities to enjoy nearby, from fishing to cycling, wine-tasting to gourmet dining. And this is another key draw for a hiking tour in this part of Victoria - it is renowned for its fine restaurants alongside many wineries producing top quality wines such as Dal Zottos and Pizzini. The area is famous for the Italian grape varieties which thrive here, good examples being Prosecco, Sangiovese and Barbera. Restaurants with well-earned reputations include Tomahawks in Bright, Brown Brothers in Milawa and Provenance in Beechworth.
You will enjoy the guided walking in the wild and remote scenery by day, but the boutique hotels of north east Victoria will ensure you have extremely comfortable nights and wonderful meals. And if you have been hiking during the day you can really allow yourself to indulge at lunchtime and in the evenings.
A hiking tour on Australia's Great Ocean Walk encompasses all this, plus reveals a fascinating insight into the history of the famous "shipwreck coast".
