If you're looking to get off the beaten track and don't mind carrying your tent on your back, hiker camps are the remote alternative to the more popular sites. All year round, hiker camps are available to book, and some are on a first in, first served basis.
Overnight dispersed hiker camps
The Grampians Peaks Trail (160km) is a world-class 13-day hiking experience from Mt Zero in the north, through Halls Gap and finishing at Dunkeld. It can also be completed in shorter sections.
The Great Ocean Walk extends just over 100km between Apollo Bay and the Twelve Apostles near Princetown. The spectacular walk weaves its way through tall forests, coastal heathlands, wild rocky shores, river estuaries and windswept cliff-tops presenting amazing views.
One of Victoria's icon walks, the 37km Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing (FHAC) is a 3 day/2 night walk through the Alpine National Park, linking the resort villages of Falls Creek and Mt Hotham.
The Alpine National Park offers some of the most authentic and scenic bush camping opportunities in Victoria.
Up for more of a challenge? Try the Northern Circuit hiking and camping through the park.
Hike your way to overnight camping sites and sleep in bookable shady campsites with views of glassy torquoise water.
