Alpine Walking Weekend
A Weekend of High Country Highlights

Make your way to Mount Hotham on Friday 4th March to join us for dinner and on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th there will be fully-guided hikes with our famous Hedonistic Hiking picnics en route. Evenings will be a combination of dinners prepared by Mick who will act as your private chef and one of the region's best-loved restaurants.

The hikes are on generally well-graded tracks on hilly terrain, rocky in places. The walking is fairly rugged in sections so sturdy walking boots, with good ankle support, are recommended. There are some steep ascents and descents. Walking poles are very useful. There is no van access on Saturday so we hike the picnic in for you.
Average temperatures in March: Mount Hotham: Max 16°- Min 4°. Average monthly rainfall: 88mm. These are averages so be prepared for both warmer (up to 22°) and cooler (down to 0°) temperatures. The weather in the mountains is prone to sudden changes so you need to have suitable warm/waterproof clothing.
Accommodation will be in the spacious Pegasus Lodge in Mount Hotham. All rooms will have ensuite or private bathroom facilities. The lodge has stunning views over the Dargo High Plains and there is plenty of room to relax. There is an open fire and a pool table.
NB. If there is a large proportion of single travellers in the group you may be required to share a bathroom, but not a bedroom, with another single traveller of the same sex.
