Three short walks will provide an introduction to the High Plains for those who haven’t yet experienced the beauty of the wildflowers and the historic huts. We will a walk on the Fainter Falls Walking Track which gradually goes approx. 800 meters uphill to a series of viewing platforms and we’ll retrace our steps to the cars to drive to the second walk which has a climb of about 200 meters over about 2 kms to the top of Mt Cope, to experience some of the magnificent 360° views. After retracing our steps, we will drive to Cope Hut where we will start a 5 km walk which takes in some of the High country history by passing Wallace’s Hut, (the oldest on the High Plains), the Rover Lodge and Cope Hut. Those who would like to can wait at Wallace’s hut for the cars to return. Participants can walk as much or as little as they choose, but those who complete the 3 walks will have walked 11 kms.
