The Nomads, a group of more than 100 men from around Victoria who meet to participate in outdoor activities, have started their summer calendar of events with the Cathedral Range to Sugarloaf Peak circuit and their Christmas BBQ this week.
Their big event of the holiday season is a pack-carrying, eight-day adventure along the Great South West Walk starting at Mt Richmond and ending at Moleside Camp.
Leaving on Boxing Day, the Nomads’ walk will take them through the Cobboboonee Forest to the Cape Nelson Lighthouse, Bridgewater Bay and Glenelg River. They will camp at the hike-in-only campsites.
Activities in the coming months include cycle rides, circuit walks, nude beach days and canoeing.
The group will also participate in Midsumma and Pride March events.
