Hanging Rock Llama Treks - Day Walk
Hanging Rock Llama Treks provides a one of a kind experience with unique animals.
Trek with only a Light Day Pack
On a llama trek you can hike the beautiful and serene locations of the Macedon Ranges and Hepburn Shire carrying only a light day pack. On our llama trips, you hike in comfort and yet see and experience the Australian bush in a very adventurous way.
Great Trail Companions
Llamas make great hiking companions, and in fact the relationship goes far beyond them simply transporting your supplies. Llamas are naturally curious and very aware of their surroundings, often the first to spot wildlife along the trail. They enjoy new sights and become very much a partner in your adventure.
Very Low Impact
Llamas leave no more impact than a hiker. Horses are notorious for tearing up trails which leads to erosion. One of the great benefits of hiking with llamas is you get the same benefit as a pack horse, but without causing damage to our surroundings.
We hope you’ll come out and experience first-hand the joy of hiking these incredible landscapes with llamas as your companions.
What’s Required of You?
Honestly, not much other than a desire for adventure, hiking, a love for stunning bush scenery, and a willingness to bond with a very unique and cool animal. We love them, and we think you will too.
We do conduct a llama orientation before we hit the trail. At that time we’ll educate you on how to lead your llama, how to protect them, and what to watch out for while on the trail.
