Our walking holidays team

Denis and Jill have been living and holidaying on the Bellarine Peninsula for more than 40 years. They were inspired to develop Footprint Walks to make it easier for people to walk the coastal paths unencumbered and relaxed in the knowledge that everything else is taken care of. Footprint Walks was initially developed to showcase the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, but this was soon followed by the popular Surf Coast trail.

Our family would not have come this far without supporting each other at all the family dinners, drinking many glasses of wine (from the Bellarine of course) and attending the mandatory monthly family meetings that have brought Footprint Walks to life. We have been busy at work, developing our Bellarine Peninsula self-guided walking tours and Surf Coast walking holidays, giving you the best taste of our local regions and everything they have on offer.

We look forward to helping you book a wonderful self-guided walking holiday in the beautiful state of Victoria. Stay up to date with our self-guided nature walks news – and be the first to know when we add a new walk!
