Mountain to Mouth Extreme Arts Walk

The Bellarine Railway has teamed up with Geelong’s multi-award
winning extreme arts walk – Mountain to Mouth Event (M~M2016) 

The walk is held over two days (6 – 7 May 2016) and has 11 stages, beginning at the You Yangs mountain range, passing through Central Geelong, along the Barwon River, via the Bellarine Peninsula and out to the mouth of the Barwon River at Barwon Heads.

The route features edgy artworks commissioned especially for M~M, bringing people together through shared experiences of extreme arts that celebrate the region.

Walkers on day two of the event will have the opportunity to walk or ride a train hauled by a historic locomotive for 13.9km from Drysdale to Swan Bay this year.

Train journey highlights and options                                                                                
* Pass the canoe procession, as it makes the journey to Swan Bay
* Travel through remnant bush land of the Bellarine Peninsula with a variety of vistas.
* Skirt beside picturesque Swan Bay to the Swan Bay Railway Station, opposite the Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre (MFDC).
* Passengers are encouraged to visit MFDC to gain an understanding of the marine and birdlife Swan Bay supports. The Centre has aquariums with local marine and freshwater life and a touch tank where visitors can get closer to animals like seastars and crabs.
* MFDC also boasts a boardwalk with uninterrupted views across Swan Bay and would be a perfect spot to enjoy a BYO lunch before the ‘M~M Walk Station’ opens at 12.30pm.
