Personal Responsibility

The Buller Huts Trail is a challenging trek and not for everyone. It is important to realistically assess your abilities and experience before attempting this hike. Just because you have completed other multi-day hikes does not mean you are ready for the Buller Huts Trail. The trail should not be attempted during winter unless you have extensive experience in this environment. It is essential to have the necessary equipment, fitness, and self-reliance skills to complete this trek safely. Please take personal responsibility for your safety and preparedness.

I have recorded the GPX files using a handheld GPS device, but they may not be accurate enough for navigation. I recommend you purchase the relevant topographic maps.

GPS receivers and smartphones are complements to navigation, and should never be the only navigational tool you use. It is a good and safe practice to know how to use a paper map and a simple compass. GPS and smartphones should be utilized as a guide, not as the absolute definition of what is happening. This applies to any device that is not a professional survey tool. For this reason, all GPX files downloaded from this website should be treated as a guide only.

Please use your own judgment and caution when hiking and navigating.

Who I am

Inspired by his love for the outdoors, Darren Edwards conceived the Buller Huts Trail, mapping out a route that linked together existing trails and 4WD tracks in Victoria’s High Country. The trail wound its way past some of Victoria’s most spectacular mountain summits and historic high country huts, including the iconic Craigs Hut, Bluff Hut, Lovicks Hut, and Vallejo Gantner Hut. The Buller Huts Trail website address is:
