Day 2 – approximately 5.3km (challenging)
Time on track – approximately 5 hours 45 minutes including breaks
You really don’t want to sleep past sunrise. Do yourself a favour and crawl out of your cosy tent to see the sun rise over the mountains. Watch drops of condensation on the grass glisten in the morning sun and the soft morning light slowly spreading over Mt Buller.
An exciting day is awaiting you today.
With camp packed and breakfast done, you will hike along a ridge and over Eagles Peaks enjoying stunning views for most of the hike. You will travel over rocky terrain and through sections of dense bush in an area so quiet and peaceful, just perfect to immerse yourself in your own thoughts.
After lunch, you will head down a very steep section, which eases off once you drop onto a shoulder that will lead you to your final destination.
The drive back to Merrijig is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes with most of it on an unsealed road.
You should arrive back at the Merrijig High Country Hotel around 4:30pm.
