Activities

  • Backpacking
  • Day walks
  • Overnight walks

The group is restricted to a maximum of forty members, and a waiting list may apply.

Focus is on various long-distance routes in the Ballarat and surrounding region.

Stages are of approximately 15km each and will suit experienced hikers with a good level of fitness. It is important that prospective new members are able to keep pace with the rest of the group. There are also important safety rules that each hiker must agree to abide by.

Most hikes involve car travel depending on the route we are hiking. 

Scheduled hikes are on the 1st,3rd and 5th Thursday of the month meeting at 7.45am.

Several times a year we have multi-day hikes required overnight accommodation. This includes an annual international hike.
