Event Description

This is a chance to experience some magnificent scenery in Victoria’s High Country, as well as to get some quite serious exercise. It involves two nights camping on the track, but in the same place (so only one set-up/pack-up).

GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Hard backpacking. Previous overnight hiking experience is highly recommended. The one-way route has been chosen to avoid any extended uphill stretch, but a reasonable level of fitness is essential. If you think you may have difficulty walking down a long, steep track (1,100m vertical drop over 11 km, on the Sunday), then this hike is not for you.

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION:
This is a one-way hike, with the actual walking starting at Diamantina Hut, Mt Hotham, at about 2:30pm on Friday. By catching the Alps Link bus up to Mt Hotham from Bright (or Harrietville), we avoid the need to do a car-shuffle on the Sunday. There is not a scheduled bus-stop at Diamantina Hut, but it is generally possible to be dropped off there upon request. If this is not possible on the day, there will be a further walk of about 2 km from the Mt Hotham bus-stop to the trail-head at Diamantina Hut.
