We reckon we could all do with some alpine trekking to walk off 2020. Now you can shake out those legs in Victoria’s alpine high country knowing you’re doing your bit for bushfire relief.
The folks at Park Trek are offering four days of classic pack-free hiking this November to help support Victoria’s tourism industry with 100% of profits going to bushfire recovery.
The Victorian Alpine region has been hit hard this year. So, to offer support they have put together a Victorian Alps Bushfire Charity Walk for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal.
During this 4 day walking tour, you’ll enjoy fantastic day walks carrying just your lunch and personal belongings in gorgeous alpine wilderness, exploring local sites, and then eat out each night to support local businesses. Nice one.
It’s a spectacular exploration of some of Australia’s most stunning alpine regions. You’ll explore the Bogong High Plains, an expansive undulating region set at a high altitude. Your guides will get you right up amongst Victoria’s highest peaks. Don’t stress if you’re not an athlete, the hiking is well within the reach of most walkers.
The small group tour (no more than 10 hikers) will hike to Ropers Lookout for expansive views across the High Country at sunset. Plus walk to Kelly Hut and Fitzgerald Hut where you’ll stop for lunch before taking the relaxing stroll back along the pretty Langford Aqueduct Trail.
You’ll also follow the Wallace Heritage Trail to visit picturesque Wallace Hut, the oldest hut in the High Country.
Climbing to the summit of Mt Jaitmathang is a trip highlight. The walk is steadily ascending, taking you from Pretty Valley, past Tawonga Huts and up to the summit.
From here you will gain stunning 360 degree views across Mt Feathertop, Mt Hotham and beyond.
This charity walk is running from Friday 20 to Monday 23 November, 2020.
All transport ex Melbourne, three nights twin-share accommodation, Park Trek walking guides, a sense of wellbeing for supporting the local community is included.
The trek will set you back around $1995 per person twin share with 100% of profits will go to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal
