Join us on Saturday June 8 for a social hiking event for local gay, bi and queer men* up Mount Buninyong as part of Ballarat Pride Month. The full walk up and back is roughly 11kms and takes about 2.5hrs. But we will stop at the top of the Mountain for a break and picnic. Also, for those interested you’re welcome to join us at The Crown Hotel for lunch at the end of the walk. Meeting at 10:15am at the Buninyong Botanical Gardens on Scott Street we will start walking up the Goldfields Trail to Mount Buninyong at 10:30am – so don’t be late! If you’re unable to do the full walk there will be a meeting point closer to the top of Mount Buninyong. Select this ticket and we’ll contact you with the meeting location and time at a later date.

WET WEATHER CONTINGENCY – keep your eye on your email and we will contact you to change the route/length if the weather is too inclement.

*note: this is a trans inclusive event. Anyone that identifies as a man is welcome.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
