::: GIBSON STEPS ::: “A real highlight for me of Day 4 of the Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk was climbing down the Gibson Steps. ⠀  It's a really magical spot - towering cliffs cocoon the soft sandy beaches and who can forget the majestic limestone structures in the background. Whilst they aren't 'Apostles' they are still absolutely breathtaking.”  @micro_adventurist  What a feel good photo! Happy hump day, hikers. May the sand be between your fingers again before you know it…

::: ROOK ::: “This whole expedition thing ain't bad.” @snackysnackaroo  How long did it take you to carve the whole set...?? Haha. Brilliant way to spend an arvo round the camp fire  #hike#hiking#hikersguide#trekking#tramping#camping#bushwalking#mountains#greenery#hikevictoria#tourismvictoria#seevictoria#seeaustralia#kingofthecastle#expedition#whittling#carving#chess#rook#hikinggames#stronggame#funandgameshikersguide.com.au

::: NIGHT LIGHTS :::⠀ ⠀ "What weekends are about! Getting away, clearing the head and relaxing in the beauty of the outdoors 👌🏻 "⠀ ⠀ 📷 @jlilford ⠀ ⠀ Absorbing the night lights in the Victorian high country - nothing quite like it. Who is seeking the solace of the mountains and stars this weekend? Where are you off to?⠀ ⠀…

::: MIRROR MIRROR :::⠀ ⠀ "Early morning reflections across Lake Crosbie, Mallee-Sunset National Park." ⠀ ⠀ 📷 @russellcurr ⠀ ⠀ Winter ain't all that bad in the Mallee. While the pink lakes are as dry as a salt flat (funny that) right now, we've got some glorious sunrises to look forward to this year. Mid year road trip, anyone?⠀ ⠀…

::: WOOLSHED FALLS :::⠀ ⠀ "Yay for the weekend! 🙌🏼😄 "⠀ ⠀ 📷 @eatandexploremelbourne⠀ ⠀ The rivers that carve and cascade through Beechworth were once the roads to riches for early prospectors. You betcha, this region was the centre of one of the richest goldfields in Australia. Picnicking along the banks in the heat of summer, you can imagine the near 8000 men, women and children calf deep in the cool water, sifting through the pebbles and loam of the river bed. ⠀ ⠀…

::: THE GOLDEN HOUR :::⠀ ⠀ "Cape Liptrap Coastal Park."⠀ ⠀ 📷 @tiagobrissos⠀ ⠀ The markings of human existence dot the coast of Cape Liptrap - middens laden with shells, stone flints and charcoal reveal the camps of Australia's first people; limestone kilns crumbling in ruins nod to our father's fathers. The lighthouse, its beam signalling ships 34 km out to sea, warns our siblings of the hazzards awaiting them in the Bass Strait. The human fingerprint is all over this narrow coastal…

::: SURF :::⠀ ⠀ "Australian beaches in summer.⠀ I looove beach top downs, and we were lucky (my skin thinks otherwise) to be on the Great Ocean Road on one of the forty degree days, so it was to the beach with the drone for us!"⠀ ⠀ 📷 @stephaniemeek_⠀ ⠀ Lorne has to be one of the prettiest (and busiest) stops along the Great Ocean Road. Hike the lush mountains and waterfalls behind you, then wash off the grit with a soak in the salty surf. It doesn't get much better than that on a summer…

::: MALACOOTA ::: ⠀ ⠀ “Get into that water and wash your self 💦 “⠀ ⠀ 📷 @manly_sydney⠀ ⠀ Well that sounds like a damn fine idea! Nothing like the salty ocean to cleanse a tired hiking bod. Malacoota is the home of turquoise water and dense greenery - a great base pre and post hiking the 100km Wilderness Coast Walk. ⠀ ⠀…

::: APOSTLES :::⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "The landscape changed to much on Day 3 of the Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk. One minute we are in rain forrest, the next, beaches with wrecks washed ashore, then tea tree forests. After 17.5km @something_about_melbounre and I deserved this little breather to check out how far we had come." ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 📷 @micro_adventurist⠀⠀ Looking back is always a bit of a reward…

::: PERSPECTIVE :::⠀ ⠀ "My happy place 🌞🍂 "⠀ ⠀ 📷 @earth.to.tom⠀ ⠀ The tallest tree on earth is a Californian Redwood, standing 116m. According to science, Hyperion, as it is named, is only 600 years into its 2000 year life span - just past its 'teenage' years, to parallel with our human existence. Standing in the dappled light of a redwood forest, knowing these trees will be here long after you've departed the earth, is quite humbling. ⠀…

::: PORTSEA :::⠀ ⠀ "A peak through nature's window"⠀ ⠀ 📷 @danielpaxton ⠀ ⠀ The rock formations along Portsea's ocean beach are the setting for many a spectacular sunset photo. Deep rock pools, explored by curious snorkelers during the heat of the day, weight heavy into their crevasses at night, their glass-like surfaces doubling the colours of the sky…

::: BLACK SPUR :::⠀ ⠀ "Beyond the corner is where the next journey begins 🌲 ."⠀ ⠀ 📷 @andy_birks⠀ ⠀ While the name sounds dark and foreboding, there's nothing quite like winding and weaving through the lush ferns and tall mountain ash that borders the Black Spur - windows down, crisp air engulfing the car. Connecting the Yarra Valley to the mountains surrounding Marysville, it is a rite of passage for local adventurers. ⠀ ⠀…
