Walk Description

The Major Mitchell Plateau is a challenging but very rewarding hike across the roof of the Grampians and includes the two highest peaks which reach 1167m. The views
are spectacular and the scenery resembles that of Central and South West Tasmania.

Meeting point: Jimmy Creek Campground; car shuffle between Jimmy Creek Campground and Sheep Hills Carpark. Walk starts at Sheep Hills Carpark and ends at Jimmy Creek Campground

Overnight Camp: First Wannon Hiker Camp. There is a fee for the campsite – I think it is $15 but will confirm closer to the date.

Booking is  required for this walk.  The Leader will confirm your acceptance onto the walk via an email.  A few days before the walk, the leader will organise car-pooling and provide details of where and when to meet.

It is expected that anyone undertaking an overnight walk has at least the experience and equipment necessary to comfortably complete a “medium” graded day walk.   If you are new to overnight camping, please refer to our Gear Checklist page or discuss with the leader.   Some equipment (eg tents, stoves) can be borrowed or shared provided you advise the leader of this when booking.  For harder-graded walks, the leader has the right not to accept bookings from anyone they consider is not sufficiently fit or experienced to undertake it, so please provide as much relevant information as you can when booking.

Booking Fee:

Please pay the leader CASH at the start of the walk, NO credit cards.

Passengers must pay the driver their share of car-pooling costs as described on the

Car-pooling page. Please bring cash for this purpose.

Hi Spira, I was wondering if there are still spots available for this hike. Somehow, I cannot log in to my account, that is why I am posing here. My membership number is 2019-667. Regards Khelina
