For a list of every task sorted by certain requirements, see Achievement Diary/All achievements.

The Varrock Diary is a set of achievement diaries whose tasks revolve around areas in and near Varrock, such as the Barbarian Village and Edgeville.

Toby's location.

To complete all of the tasks, players will need the stats shown in the infobox to the right. Unless stated otherwise, temporary skill boosts can be used for all of the diary tasks.

Players looking to claim their rewards can do so from Toby in Varrock, just behind the Varrock General Store. Note that players must complete a diary of a previous tier to claim the next tier's rewards; for example, players must do the easy and medium tasks in order to claim rewards from the hard tasks.
