The Huon Valley Mid-Winter Fest Pilgrimage Fund Raiser is an epic 40km trek raising funds for crisis and emergency accommodation for the homeless and near homeless in Hobart.
The pilgrimage begins in historic Hobart CBD and traverses its way over two days, with one night spent on top the beautiful Kunanyi / Mt Wellington and on to the amazing festival site in Grove. The trek will pass through stark alpine environments, with the potential for driving snow, tenacious winds, and freezing conditions!
The participants will spend a very cold night embracing Hobarts wintery conditions, as many people in Hobart are forced to endure on a day to day basis. The Pilgrimage hopes to highlight the pressure being placed on crisis and emergency accommodation in hobart due to current housing shortages.
