CHOOSING YOUR WALK
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 open on Monday 2 August and close on Sunday 19 September 2021.
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.
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.

The all-inclusive package includes:
- Three nights in cabin style accommodation
- Three breakfasts
- Food, drinks and snacks to make your own lunches on Saturday and Sunday
- Three dinners
- Guest speaker, award winning film maker, Beau Miles
- Two walks led by experienced leaders
- Comprehensive souvenir walk booklet
Cost of package will be confirmed prior to bookings opening, but is expected to be approximately $260 per person.
