I am extremely excited to announce the launch of a newly designed mulit-day trek website for the outdoor adventurer. Victoria’s Iconic 96km, 7 Day, Alpine Trek.
The Buller Huts Trail
The Buller Huts Trail commences on Mount Buller, high in the Victorian Alps, at an altitude of just over 1660m and traverses some of Victoria’s most spectacular mountain summits. These include Mount Buller, The Bluff, Mount Eadley Stoney, Mount Lovick, Mount Magdala, Mount Howitt, Mount Buggery, Mount Speculation, Mount Koonika, The Monument and Mount Stirling.
The trail information and website has been passionately developed by outdoor enthusiast, Darren Edwards, founder of the free-to-use Australian trails site, www.trailhiking.com.au
“The Buller Huts Trail is your opportunity to experience the best of the Victorian Alps. Over seven days this 96km, grade 5, journey will lead you through a variety of natural landscapes including deep fern-lined gullies, steep and unrelenting spurs, rugged ridge lines, exhilarating mountain summits and spectacular cliff-top outlooks”, said Edwards
This is a hike for those who want to carry tents and the paraphernalia required for hardcore multi-day adventures. There are no cosy cabins, no showers at the end of the day and no one there to prepare a tasty meal after a long day hiking. This is a true adventure. The Buller Huts Trail is a serious grade 5 undertaking for well–prepared, self-reliant adventurers, with a good level of fitness and who understand the risks of walking in a remote alpine area. This is a trek not to be taken lightly.
“I love hiking, it is my passion and I want to make it easier for more Victorian’s and visitors to experience our unique, world class natural assets and enhance their time here through a range of recreational and tourism activities. This is the reason I developed the Trail Hiking Australia site, and this is the reason I have now developed the Buller Huts Trail resource”, said Edwards
The Buller Huts Trail website, www.bullerhutstrail.com.au contains detailed information on the overall experience, day-by-day itinerary, overview of the summits, guidance on how to be prepared for mulit-day hikes in alpine conditions and an overview of the historic high-country huts that are conveniently linked along the trail.
“I absolutely love the Victorian High Country and find nothing more grounding, relaxing and enjoyable than heading out into the alps with a pack on my back, leaving the world behind me. That’s why I hike, and it is for similar reasons that, so many others are heading out into the wilderness, to discover their next adventure. The Victorian Alps and the rugged remoteness of this region are the inspiration behind this amazing 96km, 7-day, grade 5 circuit trek that I am hoping will become an iconic Victorian trek.
I hope you enjoy the Buller Huts Trail”, said Edwards
