Walks Program

Walks Program

Choose from a suite of 22 walks that highlight the southern section of the Australian Alps.  Showcasing mountain tops, deep gorges, waterfalls and expansive snow plains. In developing the walks program we have included walks catering for people with a wide range of abilities.

In an exciting first for the Federation Walks Weekend, FedWalks 2021 is offering three overnight walks, two of which are supported and a shorter one which is a "come-and- try overnight walk". We are joining with the Macalister 4WD Touring and Social Club, a local four wheel drive club, to assist in the logistics of these walks.

The walks are listed in the table below.  Bookings for the walks opened on Monday 2 August at 8:00am and have now closed as the event is fully subscribed.

As we will be walking in an alpine environment and conditions, it is appropriate to refer walkers to the Parks Victoria Warning - Remote Walking.  While the warning is specific to the walk to the Crinoline (Walk 20) many of the points covered in the warning are relevant to all the walks on offer.

The Walk Grading system is consistent with gradings used in previous Bushwalking Victoria Federation Walks events.

REGISTRATION PROCESS - Sorry, bookings are now Closed!

Choose your walks from the table below. To help you decide the Walk Description is linked to a document providing highlights and a description of the walk; and the Map link opens the detailed map associated with the walk.

Pick your top 3 walks for each day, as numbers for each walk are limited, so you may not be able to get a place on the walk of your first choice when you book, so have some alternatives ready.

Once you have made up your mind click on the Register Here button - Note: One person per Booking please!
