Chance to climb a mountain at inaugual Mt Walsh event

GRAB your bike, your bushwalking shoes or even your horse and make your way to Mt Walsh National Park near Biggenden this weekend for the Henry Walsh Ride and Climb.

The inaugural event will retrace the journey of Henry Walsh, who rode from Degilbo Station to Mt Walsh on horseback and was the first non-indigenous man to climb the 700m-high mountain.

Registrations open at 6.30am on Saturday before walkers and riders set off on three separate routes to the Mt Walsh picnic area for morning tea, a distance of about 20km.

Participants are then welcome to join in a climb of the mountain.

Ms Thompson said the day would culminate with a special period-themed dinner and dance that night at the Biggenden Show Hall.

So far more than 100 people have registered.

We'd love to hear from anyone who goes on the ride and climb. After the event, share Your Story and photo/s by clicking here.
