Central Victorian Day Hikes

The Central Highlands of Victoria is full of history, buzzing towns and a lot of nice hiking. I've been lucky to visit a few times over the years and I've only just scratched the surface of what is here.

Below is a list of hikes I've done in the area, mainly based out of Daylesford but each time I return there will be more hikes added.
