Short Walks around Geelong

With more than a 100 walks around out region we're spoilt for choice. I have put together a selection mostly 1-2hr walks, with varying degrees of adventure. Most involve half a day (or more) when you factor in time for a cuppa and the travel time to and from. However, for these or other walks I am happy to tailor any to your groups needs.
