Walking Since 1939

Mt Alexander Bouldering (20km)


Distance: 20 km (approx)

Walk Description

Please join me on an early spring Mt Alexander circuit walk with some side bouldering.

This area is rich in both indigenous and early settlement cultural significance dating back to the 18th century.

We will be setting off from a pre-determined location near Mt Alexander at 9am. Approved participants will be emailed the location and directions near the event start date.

From here we visit some of the Mt Alexander areas of interest, including;

Dog Rocks, Target Rocks, Langs Lookout near Mt Alexander Summit, remnants of an abandoned Koala park and an 18th Century silk farmer stone cottage ruin (time permitting).

It’s about 18 Kays all up.

Please email me directly with any questions or if you need more information about the difficulty of this walk.
I would rate it a 3.5 – Medium-hard walk, with some “beginner” bouldering (optional but fun) and decent distance make it a degree of difficulty slightly higher than normal walks.

This walk will not be advertised on Meetup, it’s YHA website only.

Car pooling can be initiated by filling out the car pooling details when you register. I will then do my very best to connect drivers with riders via email.
