Dear <<First Name>>,
Please distribute this notice from the FedWalks2021 organising committee to all your club members.
The combined Gippsland clubs are excited to host the Federation Walks Event for 2021 based at the Licola Wilderness Village from 12-15 November 2021. This year the event will be a unique experience, with an extended weekend of activities for participants to make the most of traveling to this remote part of Gippsland.
Choose from a suite of walks that highlight the southern section of the Australian Alps, showcasing mountain tops, deep gorges, waterfalls, and expansive snow plains. The program includes a variety of walks to suit a range of abilities, including some overnight options.
Join us on an adventure in our very special “back yard” - Come and be inspired!
Participants will arrive during the afternoon or early evening, check-in and explore the village, have a swim, or relax before dinner is served. Enjoy a catch-up with your fellow bushwalkers. (Meals will be available until 8:00pm for late arrivals).
It is likely to be an early start as you enjoy your breakfast and prepare your own lunch. You’re sure to appreciate the scenery during the drive to the start of your walk – the views stretch forever! Our experienced leaders will guide you through the diverse landscapes of the region. On your return, you will have time to freshen up before the Saturday evening activities start. This is the BIG NIGHT with a group dinner and our fabulous guest speaker Beau Miles –Gippslander and backyard adventurer. With a string of successful short films under his belt, Beau’s exploits are funny, authentic and insightful.
You will be keen to venture out on your second walk after breakfast. Some will be heading off on an overnight adventure, others on another exciting exploration of this unique area. On your return you will be treated to some tunes out on the grass with local musician Courtney Jane, with refreshments available for your “recovery session”, showcasing Gippsland food and wine.
Sunday night’s dinner will be a relaxed one and we anticipate an early and restful night.
A final relaxed breakfast will be provided on Monday morning before you pack up at your leisure and head for home.
The all-inclusive package of $260 includes shared cabin accommodation and all meals from Friday evening to Monday morning (limited space for tents is available for those who prefer to camp).
We look forward to welcoming you to this remote part of Gippsland, the “Middle of Everywhere”.
