This is a RESCHEDULED event for the one planned for December 2nd and 3rd.
This is the perfect walk for those who have not yet experienced a night camping on the High Plains. The walk is an easy 6kms out to the yards, all on track and is eminently suitable for FIRST TIME overnighters. (Experienced overnighters are also most welcome to come along and join in the fun and frivolity!)
The walk follows the Australian Alps Walking Track from Cope Hut, passes Mount Cope and the recently refurbished Cope Saddle Hut. The track then follows a maintenance track beside the viaduct to the huts. It takes about two hours of leisurely walking over mainly flat ground.
There are plenty of flat grassy spots to pitch your tent, an ample water supply nearby and a very cosy hut where we can cook our meals, socialise and sit by the open fire.
If it’s hot we’ll take a walk on Saturday afternoon to the “secret waterfall” where there is a beaut swimming hole to cool off in.
If you are worried that you may not be properly equipped, remember you can hire BBC gear from Adventure Camping in Albury, or we can rustle up whatever yo may need.
I’m rescheduling this overnighter for the benefit of those who recently missed out but am hoping as many other ‘First Timers’ will take this opportunity to spend a couple of days in a wonderful part of the High Plains.
I suggest you book early to avoid disappointment.
