Hello there Oxo's!

Last updated: April 27, 2021

We have an updated return to play plan for Melbourne University Sport! The maximum number of people allowed on trips will now be tied to the indoor household limit, this means we can have trips of 30 people! Tuesday meetings in the clubrooms are tentatively starting again and gear hire is allowed. If you need to hire gear for a club trip, contact your trip leader or relevant sports officer.

Members are required to follow our COVID-19 participant guidelines when on trips and accessing the club rooms.

Stay safe,

** Plan and route is subject to change, we may be leaving Saturday morning rather than Friday eveningĀ 

The goldfields area around Daylesford and Castlemaine is super lovely and have been keen try it out! This is a good introductory hike.

The plan is to camp at the cars Friday night at Mt Franklin. Saturday we will shuffle the cars and drive to the start of the hike. We will hike approx. 20km to Vaughan Springs where we will camp the night. Sunday we will hike 16km to Castlemaine where our cars will be. After completing the car shuffle we will head home.

whilst this is a beginner trip, you must have reasonable fitness and be prepared to hike up and down hills with about 12-15kg on your back.
