The trip starts at 8am on the first day with a private transfer from Melbourne to Wilsons Promontory and finishes in Melbourne between 4.30pm to 5pm on the last day. The tracks are mostly well cared for, dry and firm. However, on the odd occasion, we have encountered wet portions of track. Most of the walks are moderate.
Pre and post-tour accommodation: There are many good hotels in Melbourne, however, we recommend the top end of town near the theatre district, as there are many amazing restaurants within walking distance, as is the ‘MCG’ and the tennis centre. We arrive back to Melbourne after 4.30 to 5.00pm on the last day.
For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.
Spring and autumn are excellent times to walk as the weather is usually warm and sunny and of course in spring the wildflowers are blooming.
See the Bureau of Meteorology for information about temperatures and rainfall ahead of time to ensure proper clothing.
We strongly recommend the purchase of travel insurance for all of our trips. However, we require that for all travel overseas that you purchase a travel insurance policy, as we charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it. It is also important in the event of an accident or loss of property. See FAQ’s for more information.
For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask one of our destination consultants or to speak with one of our guides. You can get in touch with us via our contact form, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us on +61 3 9597 9767.
