bushwalks in Victoria's alpine region

  • How far can an older person hike with average ability and a 12-14kg backpack?
    • the rough rule of thumb is to plan to walk only 8-12 km per day of full pack carrying and count every 100m climbed or descended as an extra kilometre walked.
  • Camp amongst the snow gums rather than in the lower Mountain Ash areas - Mountain Ash are prone to falling unpredictably
  • Luckily, none of Australia's mountains are over 2500m so no risk of altitude sickness but you do have to worry about summer bushfires!
