Festival of Short Walks
Time Out says
Stretch your legs (but not for too long) at this short walking festival in the Victorian high country
Walking is great, but so is being back in time for tea. If you’re of the opinion that a quick walk is a good walk then head to Victoria’s high country this October for the Festival of Short Walks.
The festival, as advertised, is a week-long event comprising of 70 short walks around the towns Beechworth, Chiltern, Rutherglen and Yackandandah. There are 30 guided and 40 self-guided walks, all of which are tailored depending on whether you’re into food, nature, wellbeing or exploring.
This is the first time the Festival of Short Walks has been held and avid walkers have between October 14 and 20 to get strolling. Highlights of the festival program include the Lake Labyrinth walk and guided meditation; the 1500 Pound Party walk (which includes live music, local wines and snacks on reaching your destination); and the artist-led Whitebox Wanderings walk where guests will get plenty of opportunities to sketch and photograph the landscape.
Bookings are required for guided walks. For more information and the full program, check out the Festival of Short Walks website.
