We've created Hiking Melbourne with the aim to share hiking advice, pictures from trail and the occasional good article or link we stumble upon. Beside hiking, dressage riding (Anna) and geocaching (Philipp) our great passion is mountaineering. The thing where you climb big mountains with ice and glaciers on top of them. Both of us are trip leaders with the Victorian Climbing Club and  we're also members of the Bushrangers Women's Walking Club. Now if you want a free and valuable piece of advice straight away:

Don't start it!  Seriously that mountaineering stuff gets you hooked faster than ice and crack mixed together. Unfortunately nobody ever gave us that advice and now we're on our journey to explore the world one hike, one mountain and one expedition at a time. 

If you have any questions, comments or remarks about the posts, gear, hiking, mountaineering or life outdoors around Melbourne in general, drop us a line:

Now go out there and take a hike :) #hikingmelbourne
