Mountain to Mouth Extreme Arts Walk
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.
