Border Bushwalking Club – Shortest day sunset walk

Fri 21 Jun, 2024 | 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm

On Friday June 21st we celebrate the shortest day of the year.  It happens that it’s also a full moon that evening.

To celebrate this you are invited to walk the Eastern Hill circuit.  You will need to be in East Albury by 3.30pm to do this walk.

When we get to a scenic spot on the hill we will stop to enjoy the views and the sunset.  Bring a warm drink, a snack or another drink that warms you up.  A seat or rug and warm clothing will also be needed.

After watching the sun set  there is a short walk to the cars in the full moon on a wide track,  but bring a torch in case the moon is obscured.

There are a few steep pinches but these should keep us warm.  The remainder of the 7km walk is flat or undulating.

The terrain ranges from wide tracks to footpads and some footpaths to link the tracks.

This walk will not go ahead in rainy weather.
