Mount Feathertop Hike: Saturday 10 – Monday 12 March 2018 (departure from Port Melbourne Saturday morning, return to Port Melbourne no later than 6pm Monday)


Over the long weekend of 10-12 March 2018, a well trained and mentally prepared group of fit people will take off on a two day hiking/camping trip to the summit of Mt. Feathertop.

Mt. Feathertop is a beautiful 1897m mountain located in the Victorian alpine region near Harrietville. It’s the second highest mountain in Victoria. Departing Melbourne on the morning of the 10th, we travel in organised transportation to Harrietville, where we will have accommodation for the night. Early the next morning we put our packs on, carrying 15kg of equipment, clothing, food and water, and begin the more than 20km journey south-east towards the southern end of the razorback track, and along a beautiful ridgeline to the summit of Feathertop. The afternoon views from the summit as the sun is lowering towards the horizon is something you won’t easily forget. We set up camp not far from the top, have a well-needed nights rest, with a 12km walk the next morning back down to Harrietville, and our drive back to Melbourne. The total distance of the hike is 33km, with 1422m altitude increase.
