French Island is in the heart of Westernport Bay and offers tranquil surroundings and pristine flora and fauna. With next to no traffic, thousands of koalas and plenty of history this makes for a perfect overnight hike. This trip includes ferry fees, camping permits, professional guides and yummy home cooked food!
If you have never done an overnight hike or you’re unsure about carrying a pack, then you really should make the most from this opportunity. We only carry our backpacks for the first 5km, then set up camp and continue with day bags to explore the wilderness and easy tracks around the Island. This short rucksacks carry also means we can afford to take a few more of life’s luxuries or to test gear that you are unfamiliar with. Maybe even something to sit on!
With great proximity to Melbourne, this is an wonderful opportunity to explore a part of Victoria that is not often visited yet offers some of the best walking right on our doorstep.
A comprehensive gear list is provided to participants prior to the trip.
