The Adventure
Warburton – Intro Into Pack Carry 

***Minimum of 5 people required***

***An overnight backpack is required for this adventure. Should you require one, we are able to organise this for you***

Looking to make that jump from camping and into pack carry hikes, but don’t have the confidence or the know-how to do it by yourself? Or perhaps you’ve got your eye on an epic multi-day adventure in the future but need somewhere to start your preparation for it?

Our Warburton Intro Into Pack Carry adventure will give you a taste of what it’s like to carry a pack full of gear from one campsite to another.

The return rail we’ll be taking in Warburton will be the first section of the Walk Into History trail from Big Pats Creek to Starlings Gap totalling 18kms across the weekend.

Following your typical bushland trail through dense rainforest covered in ferns, the trail rises and falls 500-600m over the weekend as we make our way to the Starlings Gap campsite where we’ll pitch our tents for the night. It’s worth noting that the Warburton area, as a whole, is known for its leeches. However, they are nothing more than pests and really can’t harm you.

Starlings Gap is a simple campsite with plenty of room, a drop toilet, fire pit areas and a handy little sheltered picnic area ideal for meals. It’s also a central location of sorts for many of the other walks in the area.

At any one time, you’ll be required to carry your tent, sleeping mat, sleeping bag, food, water and clothing which will replicate what you would typically carry during a longer, more challenging pack carry hike.

To ensure we are giving you the best pack carry experience possible, our dinner and breakfast meals for the weekend will be provided by Campers Pantry. They are an Australian company that offers freeze-dried gourmet meals that use 100% real Australian meat and ingredients. Vegetarian options are also available.

Please indicate in the information/notes section of your order which breakfast and dinner option you would prefer.

You can choose one each from the following breakfast and dinner options:

Breakfast (subject to availability)

  • Oats with Apple & Cinnamon (two serves)
  • Oats with Honey & Raisins (two serves)

Dinner (subject to availability)

  • Lamb Casserole (one large serve)
  • Vegetarian Pasta (one large serve)
  • Beef Teriyaki (one large serve)
  • Moroccan Pork (one large serve)
  • Apricot Chicken (one large serve)

Lunch for the weekend will consist of mountain bread wraps with spinach, salami, hummus and Baby Bel cheese.
