Developed in 2016 by Dan Hunt, the Hunt 1000 is a bikepacking route that links Melbourne to Canberra, and traverses some of Australia’s most beautiful high country. The route incorporates amazing campsites and historic alpine huts, provides a limited number of resupply points, and mixes in challenging hike-a-bike sections, as well as river/creek crossings. Each year the route is also changed to create a new adventure and visit new trails through this amazing land.
Riders will be pedalling from Melbourne to Canberra and aiming for a grand finish, rather than a grand depart, on Sat the 2nd Dec 2023 in Canberra. This is not a race but an adventure and your departure date is up to you. The goal is to get to Canberra…..and share a brew with the other riders on Sat 2nd.
