About this Event

Hardcore hikers will enjoy a challenging rock scramble hike along the coast.

Friends and family will enjoy shorter hikes around historic line kilns on the beach and a group hike to a lighthouse.

Everyone can enjoy beach volleyball and rock pool exploration.

Wirrega is a comfortable barn-shaped structure nestled in 5 acres on Bear Gully Road, Cape Liptrap, Victoria.

Wirrega represents eco-tourism at its best. Every part of this spacious coastal hideaway has been fashioned from recycled materials, including massive hand-adzed beams and weathered poles that date back a century or more. The extensive use of glass creates a beautiful dining room. Wirrega has a total of seven bedrooms (five on the ground floor and two on the first floor).

Upstairs and downstairs lounge rooms both seat 14 and have digital TVs. Upstairs has both VCR and DVD players, plus 4 klik klak couches that convert to double beds for extra beds. It is a great place to entertain the kids.

Guest accommodation for our trip will consist of five bedrooms on ground level. The downstairs rooms contain a double bed, plus a single bed on an upper level. The bedrooms open onto a communal living space, and all have doors leading directly into the garden. Each bed has a woollen underlay, feather doona, pillows and a fluffy rug. There is room for each room to have another bed made up.

Wirrega boasts a double shower room with basin and separate toilet, as well as a big bathroom with double bath, shower, basin and toilet. Wirrega also has a laundry with a small washing machine.

You bring your own consumables, food (accept for the meals that are provided by Hiked), towels, sheets, pillow cases and doona covers. Heating is provided by gas heating and an open log fire.

Inside and outside barbecues are provided.
