Flinders Peak Loop - You Yangs National Park Map

The You Yangs are a spectacular range of granite peaks rising from the plains outside Melbourne. They are considered one of the most unique regional parks in Victoria as they involve steep ascents and descents, with a network of possible trails. But it’s also one of the most rewarding as you ascend from one lookout to another and see views that remain uninterrupted for miles.


The Flinders Peak Loop is among the best hikes in the You Yangs, revealing many hidden aspects of these rocky peaks, from exposed boulders to dense vegetation. And all this within a 4km / 1-2 hour loop. So while the trail may involve an ascent and descent, it’s family-friendly and well worth the effort.

It's worth noting that this trail does not cross the summit of Flinders Peak (although does pass the trailhead for that hike).

Check local conditions before setting out on this hike, and be sure to take food and water on the trail.



Hiking along trails with some uneven terrain and small hills. Small rocks and roots may be present.
