Being form the Grampians where most walks are marked by Parks Victoria and highly visited, it was a new experience to be in the gorgeous forest at Clear Air, " off the beaten track", all by ourselves! We soon discovered we like cutting corners! The...More

It was a wonderful experience. Totally worth going with friends or family for long walks. There’s a lake halfway which is beautiful. Totally worth it. Brendan helped us with all the equipments and information required.

This secret forest walk felt really exclusive. Like a beautiful private activity already laid out for us. We sat by a lake all by ourselves and tracked through dense forest. It was a truly special activity

We wanted to fit in a slightly challenging ride and wanted to spend lots of time with trees and greenery all around. Being fairly confident regular cyclists (though not anywhere near the racing or technical sorts yet), we felt we might be up for most...More

Well done Eugene. I'd been intending to delete the rides from the Secret Forest Walks offerings, but you've got me thinking that they should stay. Cheers Brendan

I had a lovely time on the Birdsong walk. The brief before the walk covered everything I needed to know about the gps unit and gave me confidence to head out solo. Having recently snowed in the area the ground had a light covering, this...More

Brendan was very easy and available to communicate with before we even started. I had looked up hikes around the region and they all seemed very 'touristy' and busy. Brendan gave us many good options. I was with my partner, and wanting seclusion. Brendan delivered....More
