TOUR OVERVIEW

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. The forests west of Melbourne are a wonderful location to see Grass trees, drooping sheoaks and the fascinating sedimentary rock formations that have been folded and twisted for millions of years. The walk also visits Australia’s first concrete wall dam which supplied water to Geelong. The tracks vary from rocky single track to open easy pathways so put on your light shoes and enjoy this great day out.

Short Day Hikes

These hikes combine our beginner hikes and our fitness hikes

They are under 4 hrs, less than 12km grade 2-4, perfect for beginners and for those wanting to get fitter, as we can challenge you. Fewer locations means you can attend and add goals to see improvement.

FAQS

This is one of our most common questions, and our recommendation is that for most of our day walks you should wear your most comfortable footwear. Don’t wear your old hiking boots from 20 years ago, and don’t wear thongs or sandals. Bottom line is your runners are probably the best choice unless you have some comfortable hiking shoes or trail runners. In some circumstances you may want footwear with better grip than runners, particularly for muddy winter walks. If you are still in doubt, bring along both pairs and get our guides recommendation on the day.

Transport to and from location is not included but ride-sharing can be arranged

All our trips include our awesome TSA guides, accommodation, all your meals, beverages, access, permits, and all extras such as gear, activites, climbs, rafting, caving or any of the other exciting activities that appears on our tours. There is never any more to pay, unless you want to buy your own things like a coffee, souvenirs etc.

As with all of our events, our trips vary in length and difficulty. We suggest you look at the grading provided and have a browse through the itinerary distances. If you can walk 20km day after day then you’ll be fine for the Larapinta Trek, or you may be more suited to wandering around the Bay of Fires and more leisurely beach walking. Remember that you will have weeks to months to build up your fitness before the trip – which we can help with! If still in doubt, give us a call

We always want to keep you safe and have developed a Covid safety plan for the trail. Check it out HERE

5 Reason You Should Always Have An Adventure To Look Forward To

“Anticipation implies a future reward, and rewards are powerful motivators,” - Smith Crawford. Planning and anticipating a trip can be almost as enjoyable as going on the trip itself, and there’s research to back it up.

WHY CHOOSE

TAKE SHAPE ADVENTURES

FRIENDSHIP

Most of the people that come on our tours come by themselves. Our community is built on friendships that have been made on our trips, experiencing something life changing together, the shared memories and also goals to do more in the future! We encourage people not to be anxious about coming on these trips by yourself as we promise you will leave with some like minded friends and be really glad you made the decision to get out of your comfort zone and join in.

BELONG

Our community is our backbone. We have had so many people start with no hiking experience, basic fitness and not knowing anyone on our trips. These same people have gone on to do some incredible multi day hiking trips with us and their friends they have met in our community. Witnessing the development of their fitness, confidence, experience, friendships and happiness is why we do what we do. Come join us and let us help you get from the couch to the top of the mountain!

ADVENTURE

Experiences, not things. The moments that take your breath away. The feeling of accomplishment and the realisation that you are capable of so much more than what you thought. The views that blow your mind and the ticking off of bucket list items. We take all the hard work out of it for you. We organise the lot so you can just turn up and get the best of your experience without all the headaches of organising/logistics. We make it easy for you to do all the thing you want to do –  you just need to turn up and be ready to jump into life!
