Victorian adventures: Three of the best

Victoria will not disappoint those with a focus on outdoor fun. Whether it is riding or hiking its spectacular alpine region, walking the epic coastline west of Melbourne, or exploring one of Australia’s most iconic coastal national parks, there is loads of adventure on tap.

There are few things better than hiking solo – especially if it’s an overnight escape; packing a few essentials into your pack – food, water, stove, sleeping gear – is the true definition of simplicity. Of course, besides all this gear, you also need a shelter.

Finding that combo of lightweight and tough construction, however, isn’t always easy.
