Five of the best family-friendly walks in Victoria
Want to get the kids out of the house? These are five great family hikes in Victoria.
Taking a walk is a great way for families to stay connected and, besides the wellbeing and social benefits, a hike can also serve as an environmental and history lesson.
These five hikes have individual appeal, so choose one that suits your children’s energy levels and/or attention spans. None is more than several hours, the hills won’t kill your quads and there’s no bush-bashing.
Just heed the guidelines: Footwear that’s well worn in, sunscreen, plenty of water and snacks, and be ready for changes in weather. Walking times are conservative, allowing for looking, taking photos and absorbing the beauty.
