Thank you for your interest in participating in the Wilsons Prom Weekend Walks, two days of amazing scenery and fun in the Wilsons Prom National Park, in Victoria, Australia.
Our Wilsons Prom Weekend Walks will commence with all participants meeting on Friday evening at Tidal River, Wilsons Prom National Park and staying in the Tidal River Cabins.
We will enjoy two days of walks of various lengths, including to Sealers Cove and climbing Mt Oberon and walking to Oberon Bay.
Our accommodation will be bunk beds in the Tidal River Cabins.
We will however do our best to accommodate everyone as comfortably as possible!
This document is not a comprehensive guide of all equipment you would need, nor does it provide everything you need to do in order to ensure your fitness levels are adequate for the Walk. BANG Fitness Adventures will discuss each individual’s fitness and medical concerns with the individual and will provide a training guide to be followed as well as free training events that participants can attend. Interstate and International participants will need to source suitable training facilities however BANG Fitness Adventures will endeavour to assist where possible with advice and support.
As a general rule, cross training will be the most suitable form of training, a mix of cardiovascular and resistance training to ensure adequate muscle strength and endurance and heart health. The intensity of each leg of the Wilsons Prom Weekend Walks will depend on many factors, some of which include weather, incline, surfaces, duration of each leg etc., so the more variety you can implement in your training the better prepared you are likely to be.
It is important to note though that the Wilsons Prom Weekend Walks will be an experience, not a race. We will walk as a group, and participants can rest as required, and frequent breaks will be had to ensure we rehydrate and eat as well as stop to enjoy the stunning views.
Day One– after meeting the evening before at our Tidal River Cabin accommodation at Tidal River, we will have a hearty breakfast and then we will climb Mt Oberon and then walk to Oberon Bay, returning by a loop to Tidal River.
We may encounter some of the local wildlife, usually plenty of wombats around Tidal River and wallabies along the trails, as well as lots of others if you look carefully!
Day Two – We commence our walk to Sealers Cove and back, approximately 6 hours and 19 kms in total.
You will be able to store your belongings in your car when we check out on Sunday morning, or in one cabin we will keep for the rest of the day, however there are showers at Tidal River so you can clean up before heading home.
Obviously we have no refrigeration facilities during the day so snacks need to be non-perishable and we are also highly aware of leaving the environment as we found it, so all rubbish and containers must be carried home with us so that the next users of the trail may enjoy it the same way we have.
We may meet other groups on the Wilsons Prom Weekend Walks and we encourage you to introduce yourselves and share experiences and impressions along the way. We are all there to enjoy an incredible experience and meet like-minded people.
Given the distance from towns, there are limited sources of fresh water available other than at the designated camp sites along the Walk that are maintained by Parks Victoria. We will be ensuring that we carry enough drink bottles to sustain us between accommodations and to purify water before drinking it if required.
Both days will involve 6 to 8 hours of walking over a variety of terrain, with plenty of time for taking photos, sitting and absorbing the incredible scenery nature has provided us, chatting with fellow participants, rehydrating and eating and simply resting up when we need a break. We want this to be an experience to savour, to relish and to immerse yourself into, coming out the other end with an appreciation of exactly what you are capable of and with a sense of perspective about how you can overcome future challenges in your lives.
