Hike Fit

Do you love adventure?

Perhaps it’s been a while since you got out on the trails, or you’re ready to step off the pavement into nature… either way you’re ready to step out of your comfort zone but not sure where to start?

Main Range 2022

PLUS it can also be a little tricky to find like minded women and friends to join us on these adventures.

Trying new things, or rediscovering activities we onced loved can feel challenging as we get older. We worry whether we can still do the things we used to do, or are fit and strong enough to try new things.

I want women to feel empowered to be who they want to be, how they want to be – without limits-  to feel unstoppable – to feel like they can take on the world regardless of their age.

2023 full day hiking weekends

8th May – 28th July 2023 – CLOSED

Day Hike – 29th July – Hume and Hovell Track – Henry Angel Track Head to Mannus Lake + Big Hill – approx 20km. (*date pending winter track conditions).

Henry Angel Trackhead to Mannus Lake via Big Hill - Day hike description

This 12 week program will prepare you for our next day hiking adventure, which will be approximately 20km along the historic Hume and Hovell expedition track – starting near Tumbarumba.

Henry Angel Trackhead to Mannus Lake via Big Hill

This is a long but beautiful walk along the Burra Creek down to the Tumbarumba Creek valley before climbing Mannus ridge through Bogandyera Nature Reserve and descending down to Mannus Lake.

It is historically very significant, for both the gold mining evidence along Burra Creek and because the explorers, Hume and Hovell, followed this same route and first viewed the Snowy Mountains from Big Hill.

4th September  – 26 November 2023 – Cost $459 – Apply now

Exclusive Full Day Hike 2nd December – Razorback – Diamantina Hut to Mt Feathertop and Harrietville – approx 22km (full itinerary and additional costs TBC)

Diamantina Hut to Mt Feathertop and Harrietville - Day hike description

This is one of the best alpine walks in Victoria with fantastic views over the Alpine National Park.  150m climb en-route plus 200m climb to summit. 

This is a long walk – 19km + 3km for walk to summit Mt Feathertop, Victoria’s second highest mountain. 

The trail commences near Diamantina hut, near the Mount Hotham ski resort and follows The Razorback, a high narrow ridge, but otherwise surrounded by steep slopes which continue right to the summit.

Near Federation Hut the track leads off to the summit. It is a 200m climb all of which is above the tree line.

Mt Feathertop is one of the most picturesque and most appealing peak in the Victoria high country.  The view from the top is spectacular and extends for 360 degrees. What makes it special is that it is different in every direction.

Unlike most nearby mountains, Mount Feathertop has steep slopes right to the top and does not have the rounded summit dome that is typical of many nearby peaks.

We will return to Harrietville via Bungalow Spur which follows an old bridle track that is perfectly graded and makes for easy walking.

Whilst mostly a grade 3-4 track, some of the ascents (such as the final pinch to Mt Feathertop) are steep, with uneven and broken, rocky terrain..

8-11 March 2024 – Kosciusko national park

Saturday – Summit Mount Kosciusko via the Main Range Walk – Approx 23km

Sunday – Start the day with a recovery and stretching session before heading out to explore short trails in Kosciusko National Park followed by some local sightseeing.

Monday – Start the day with a recovery and stretching session before heading home.

Cost: TBC

Mount Kosciuszko - Main Range walk - Day Hike description

This hike is located in the Alpine region of Kosciuszko national Park.

You will tackle the challenging Main Range walk, which takes in glacial lakes, historic huts, and the summit of Mount Kosciuszko.

This trek will see you following marked and well-formed trails, climbing to the top of some of Australia’s highest peaks and no.1 highest, Mount Kosciuszko.

The hike will start at Charlotte Pass car park and head along the Main Range Track stopping in at Blue Lake before making the climb up to Carruthers Peak. 

Catch your breath as you travel along the mostly flat section until you make your final ascent to Mount Kosciuszko. After this you will return to the Charlotte Pass carpark along an easy open trail. 

Participants will be required to traverse some moderate to steep inclines and descents that can be constant over some long distances.

This is classed as a a Grade 4 hike and is approximately 23km taking roughly 8-9 hours

If you would like to improve your hiking fitness but are unable to join us for the final full day hike – you are still welcome to join this program

Full day hike costs (e.g. transport, accommodation, food) are not included.

*Maximum of 12 participants per intake.


I hiked Mt Kosciuszko!! 

Hike Fit started me back on the path of fitness & looking after myself.

I feel great, have so much more confidence and am determined to continue on this path!

Sandra Moon

Hike Fit is a fun and motivating program that provides a safe environment to stretch your horizons. 

Not only did it provide me with training, accountability and confidence to climb Mt Kosciuszko, it grew an incredible community of like minded women and new found friendships.

Elizabeth O'Shea

I put me first for once!

I have a great sense of achievement, loved the camaraderie, have a better sense of my abilities & hunger for more scenic adventures.

My kids are super proud of me too!

Melissa Lawrence

Hiking was always on the bucket list.  Joanne organised everything, from the training to coordinating the weekend, which made the experience so much easier for beginners.

The training hikes are very rewarding with a huge sense of achievement – so fantastic to experience places, rather than read or hear about them.
