Anakie Gorge Circuit

Join us on this delightful exploration of one of Melbourne's lesser known gorges. Great walking tracks combined with views, hills and flat walking make this a great all rounder. This walk is a circuit and includes a short section of in and back trail, plus number of lookouts.
Mid winter is definitely the time when you feel like sitting indoors all day, but not on this day! Make this the day where you get outside, enjoy the elements, have hot soup and warm bread and revel in the joy of doing something unique.This great walk, combined with our fantastic food and the social connections on all our events, ensures you have simply the best a weekend can offer.
