Hiking near me

If you love to hike, but sometimes struggle to find the motivation to go out on your own, joining a local hiking group might be just what you need.

Not only will it give you a group of people with similar interests, it’ll also provide you with new friends who can help keep you accountable when it comes to hiking frequently.

Regardless of whether you live in a major metropolitan area or are somewhere more remote, there are likely plenty of other people around you who love getting outside and exploring nature. In fact, many cities have hiking groups that meet regularly so that people can meet others with similar interests and have someone to climb with on those days where going solo isn’t as appealing or convenient.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in doing, try using our search to disover local groups and guided outdoor activities that exist in your local area.

Melbourne Social Walks - Hiking and Camping

A great way to meet new people in Melbourne especially for Travelers that are looking for new friends.

I’ve been organising these for years so I’ve learnt a thing or two on what makes a good social group. Engagement is everything. There are loads of hiking groups that exist in Victoria alone but rarely utilitised.

EVERY fortnight without fail there is a hike. New people are always welcome.

Think about your fitness differently: Open Goals vs Fixed Goals
5 days ago

When trying to set a fitness goal, it is important to note there are two kinds of goal-setting. Knowing your options, can help you experiment and find a goal that work best for you.



With open goals, your goals are wide-open: broad, general and not restrictive; as a result, you have the freedom to achieve them in any way you like. However with fixed goals, you’re restricted by challenging criteria and pre-set objectives that must be achieved in specific ways.
