If you are in need of an escape from the urban landscape, and want to find yourself surrounded by stunning views then the You Yangs is the place to go. With rocky outcrops and expansive views of the coastal plains and even to the Bay, the East West Walk has been rated as one of the Top 10 Walks Around Melbourne. Starting at the carpark, we will first circumnavigate and then summit Flinders Peak, the highest Mountain in the You Yangs and surrounded by the distinctive granite peaks of the You Yangs, you will enjoy the vast volcanic plains between Melbourne and Geelong that make up this unique part of Victoria. Plus you get full panoramic views in every direction. The walk is moderately flat on the loop followed by some stairs to reach the top and is a perfect day out.
Come along on your own, or bring a friend or family member. It doesn’t matter who you are or your fitness, we want to encourage more people to get out, make new friends, and have a great day outside connecting with nature, enjoying good conversation and feeling fit and healthy. We have walkers of all ages, from the 70’s all the way down to kids. Our qualified and encouraging staff lead your day out and feed you yummy healthy food, so come along and feel safe, supported and try our famous lemon slice and protein balls. You will get to visit the best and some lesser known day hiking destinations within two hours of Melbourne. There is no better time to treat yourself to a day in nature, connecting with new friends and feeling amazing! Book a walk TODAY!
One of the most common questions we get asked is “ Can I come on the trip by myself?”
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.
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!
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 things you want to do- you just need to turn up and be ready to jump into life!
