Set new goals for 2020!!

If you are keen to get into bushwalking, but are thinking twice about it because of fitness, lack of experience or confidence, or because you don’t have a “tribe” to go with …. Mt Barney Lodge has the solution – we are going to help you get Mountain Fit!

Starting in autumn, Mt Barney Lodge is offering a Mountain Fit bushwalking series to get you focussed and motivated. Depending on your fitness level, choose from either “low elevation” walks or "medium elevation walks" – complete the series of three walks and be eligible to also register in the future for the harder “medium and/or high elevation” walking series. It is recommended that you also plan a weekly walking fitness routine to improve your endurance. We'll also send you our training template.

Over three months on a Friday morning, we have put together a series of graduated half-day hikes with a focus topic to help you gain the knowledge and skills to become an independent bushwalker. Inclusions = expert guiding, bus transfers from meetup points, freshly made tea, coffee and cake on each walk.

The Low and Medium Elevation Mountain Fit all-inclusive package is $165 each.

All walks commence at 8.00am from the meeting point (to be advised after registration).

Full program details can be found here:

In 2020 we will be adding the "High Elevation" Mountain Fit Series.

To join, email Mt Barney Lodge and request the Mountain Fit sign-on forms.

Further enquiries can be directed to 55443233.
