You Yang’s Regional Park: Night Walk and Dinner


Walk Description

Distance: 14km – Medium

YHA Bushwalking will be visiting the You Yangs Regional Park for a fun late afternoon and night walk.

Event Details: We head off for a hike up to Flinders Peak while checking out the Big Rock – a major viewpoint and attraction – along the way. Once up at Flinders Peak we will take an extended break to relax and watch the sun set over the western plains out towards Geelong, while having a BYO dinner. After dinner we will head down from Flinders Peak with head torches for a circuit night hike with breaks along the way and then retrace our steps back to our starting point to return home.

Please Note: The night walk has some rocky sections so light hiking boots or trail shoes with good grip are recommended for this walk.  This is not a hard walk but good fitness is required as there will be some moderate climbing and rock scrambling involved.

As we are getting close to winter please make sure you bring along some warm and windproof clothing for this walk. We will be spending an extended stop at Flinders Peak for our dinner break so please feel free to bring along a small hike stove to cook up a hot meal or some hot drinks.
