The Victorian Alpine region has been hit hard this year, firstly from the impact of the bushfires closely followed by Covid-19 travel restrictions.
In the aftermath there is a significant ongoing cost to local communities that are struggling to get back on their feet, including the cost of reduced tourism.
So walking tour operator Park Trek has organised the Victorian Alps Bushfire Charity Walk with 100% of profits going to bushfire recovery.
During this 4 day Vic Alps walking tour, you will be hiking in gorgeous alpine wilderness, exploring local sites, and eat out each night to support local businesses.
You’ll explore the Bogong High Plains, an expansive undulating region set at a high altitude. We'll get you right up amongst Victoria's highest peaks, but the walking is well within the reach of most walkers.
You’ll hike to Ropers Lookout for expansive views across the High Country at sunset and walk to Kelly Hut and Fitzgerald Hut where we'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 runs from Friday 20 to Monday 23 November, 2020. For all info click here.
