We hiked the Ted Errey Nature Circuit over the Easter long weekend. I’m so glad we chose this longer hike over the Anakie Gorge Walk as it meant we only saw three other groups the whole day (when there were quite a few families walking...More

Having just read Stan K's review (Oct 2014) had to put something up here about the Brisbane Ranges, and the historic, 'living ghost town' of Steiglitz. Thousands of visitors enjoy this bush and its historic remnants each year. Every weekend you'll see Friday's picnic grounds...More

A great location only an hour north west of Melbourne. Some decent camping sites, including Friday's, offer basic but well positioned (close to town and near many hikes and walks) and are family friendly. There's a range of trails that run through and around the...More
