No utility for orienteering or rock climbing based on my explorations. Should have gone further north to Mt Hope. Potential for both sports there.
Where exactly is it? Lovers of granite want to know!
I did a floristic survey there on the rocks at uni...still meant to be trying to get it published...(and had district cross country there before that)
I celebrated the coming in of this new year at this place
with my Brother, family and friends. The plan was to do a midnight run to the rock. Didn't happen
Seems a long way out of the way for a district cross-country (or was the idea that it was neutral ground between Bendigo, Echuca and Kerang?).
Jim's Google link pretty much shows where it is; probably 60-70km north of Bendigo? (and about 5km north of Mitiamo).
Looks like a valid detour for the road trip home from Beechworth after Oceania :)
I'll come and ID plants for you :)
I can't remember where the district was - I think I only went once - cross country wasn't a big thing at high school (not for me at least).
BTW, how many different Aust states have a Mt Hope...?
I know there's also one on Eyre Peninsula!
Mr Google Maps has one in NSW, SA and WA and two in VIC
No hope for NT, TAS or QLD
I think only SA has a Hopeless, though?
That post is useless in the context of this thread.
Victoria also has a Mount Dispair
