Whiskey Creek Circuit is a 11.9km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Lerderderg State Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.

Summary

One of Lerderderg’s most interesting and varied circuit walks. The Whiskey Creek Circuit trail passes various gold diggings, follows a scenic section of the historic water race and crosses one of Lerderderg’s deepest tributaries, Whisky Creek. Sweeping views of the gorge and a strong sense of history add greatly to this walks appeal.

Tips

This is a difficult hike with river and creek crossings (although possibly dry in summer and autumn), a number of steep sections and undefined trails. Poles will be useful. Carry at least 3 litres of water and a day pack.
