Not So Newbies Sunrise Walk - up to Mt Vic summit

  • Aug 25, 2013 · 6:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members


Come join this popular sunrise walk up to the summit of Mount Victoria.  After the roaring success of previous Sunrise walks, what better way to start the day with a brisk walk to take in the stupendous views that prevail on top of Mt Vic (weather permitting). There will be some time for Hacky once we reach the top and also feel free to bring anything to share. 

If you're looking for a bright and early start to the day, you can't do much better than this.


The Plan:

We start in front of the Embassy Theatre at 6.15am sharp, head up Majoribanks Street, to the summit of Mount Victoria.

The lookout provides some lovely views overlooking the city and the hills in the west then finally back down to the city to enjoy the rest of the day.

If you're keen for a brisk paced walk through beautiful natural bush, at this not so unholy hour of the morning, this one is for you!

We will stop off at Beach Babylon, Pandoro or the Cambridge Hotel for an optional breakfast afterwards, around 8.30am.

Time: 2 hours (tops!)

Difficulty: 5/10

Distance: 7kms

What To Bring: Sturdy footwear, a camera, a good sense of humor, fun attitude, a thermos of tea or coffee, a coffee mug, a light snack, and maybe a walking stick for traversing the steep hills. A windproof jacket and layers of clothing which you can peel off as you get hot could be useful.

How to get there: Just at the end of Courtenay Place, on Cambridge Terrace, at the Embassy Theatre.

This event will be cancelled if there are adverse weather conditions forecast.

      Also do be mindful that there will likely be many still out around Courtenay from last night, so do be careful!

    My plan is to be here for this, but I work until 6am. Not going to RSVP in case I get off work late, but if I'm off on time I will wonder over and join.
