Aussie Hike

The Great Aussie Hike embraces the great Aussie spirit of mates looking after each other. There has never been a period in recent history when this has been so important. The need to stay connected and support those we care about most.

The Great Aussie Hike was developed in 2020 by a group of volunteers who wanted to do something to help the mental well-being of the community during both lockdowns and periods of heavy restrictions. It was designed with the purpose of giving friends a tangible resource they could use to support each other – something that is simple to follow, but based on foundations that research shows does make a difference.

The program component focuses on human connection, goal-setting, basic physical activity in nature and mindset development that is completed in small groups. The program concludes with a team walking challenge on April 1-2 next year. Teams can choose from either 30km, 43km, 57km or 100km distances that wind around the Mornington Peninsula on a stunning new course developed just for this event.

Participants can either elect to walk the whole distance or complete it as part of a relay team. This option allows for greater inclusion, with all your friends able to join the fun no matter what their level of fitness is.

The training program is also available for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels with the primary purpose to get people moving, talking, staying connected and having something to work towards together.

Day one of the challenge will see teams departing Cape Schanck and continuing along the trails until they arrive at the Arthurs Seat Eagle base. The fantastic team here have organised to provide gondolas for the walkers to travel to the summit and add this amazing experience to the journey. Teams will continue to Main Ridge before resting overnight and starting the next day in Red Hill South. Day two travels west to Somers and continues through Crib Point and Hastings, with teams arriving at Devilbend Natural Features Reserve and the finish line on Saturday evening.

Registrations are now open to either complete just the program or join both the program and challenge. Numbers will be limited to ensure the event can proceed under COVID-19 regulations. Further details can be found at
