ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: Pyramid is a small town of 600 people about an hour north-west of Bendigo. The area was surveyed in 1836 by Major Thomas Mitchell during his journey into “Australia Felix”. The granite “Hill” at 187 metres above sea level reminded Major Mitchell of the monuments of Egypt.

Upon arrival at Pyramid Station there will be a 3 km walk to the “Hill” Summit park. This will be the lunch spot with ample time to both undertake the walk around the Summit plus scramble up and down the Summit.

Time and interest permitting, on the return journey there is the opportunity to deviate via the nearby Pyramid Bushland Reserve. The local bakery plus the Pub should be open for refreshments before starting the return train journey at 5:47pm
