About the Event
Virtus HQ & Holistic Hikes have joined health forces to bring you a Family day out in Nature!
A moderate-hard graded hike, starting in McCrae on Point Nepean Road, we start a steep incline up the staircase to the top of the cliff and onto Latrobe Parade. Follow the road over the freeway and into Bunurong Track to the edge of Arthurs Seat State Park. This is where the fun starts! The winding track traverses the side of Arthur's Seat providing a challenging yet rewarding climb! Early morning see's local wallabies grazing to the side of the path and birdlife come alive.
The 314m summit brings us to the edge of the Seawinds garden, providing the perfect opportunity to rest and explore mindfulness concepts and gain a little health insight with Amanda a Holistic Nutrition & Mindfulness coach.
Following the trail to the south towards King's Falls, spectacular views across Port Philip Bays are offered and on a clear day the view extends as far as the city skyline, the You Yang’s and Mount Macedon. We follow the circuit around King's fall and return along the same path.
Upon returning to McCrae from the steep descent, we will wade in the salt water for a post hike recovery session. The salt water will aid in reducing muscle soreness and speed up recovery times.
Sunday 27th - 9:00am start
