Event description
The Wilderness Wanderer's Hike Mt Domain (SUPER FUN DAY)

About this event

We are in for an epic bushwalking experience in the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.

Mt Domain rises to just over 1500m at the southern end of the Tidbinbilla Range, behind the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve (TNR). It is visible from many parts of Canberra.

We will approach via the Fishing Gap Fire Trail, then a cleared footpad route which climbs 300 vertical metres from Fishing Gap to the ridge .

A relatively flat footpad takes us NW to the final prominence, followed by the final climb of 100 vertical metres to the top. Grand views on a good day, west to the wild Cotter River valley and east to TNR. Approximately 13km return and 700m climb. We will return the way we came.

This hike is suitable for those who have hiking experience and have hiked with ATICA before, and a reasonable level of fitness.

If you are interested but feel unsure about whether or not this hike is something you can do, please get in touch with me. I would much rather you get out and enjoy a day in nature, challenge yourself and achieve new things. You have my support and encouragement the whole way.

I will update the weather forecast the day before just to ensure we can all be prepared. It is best to layer dress. It's easier to de-layer and to warm up/cool down and layers are easier to carry in your back pack.

The day will only be cancelled if the weather looks really bad and or dangerous.

I will also be in touch with everyone coming via both the Wilderness Wanderer's FB group and email to confirm any last minute details.
