Midnight to Dawn ANZAC Service Trek will be hosted and conducted by Trek2Health. The meeting place for this event will be ANZAC memorial Park – Walton Street Bridge, The Gap. Event crew will be onsite at 2300 and the private bus charter will leave at 2320 for ANZAC Square, Brisbane city. All participants will be provided with a trek handbook with the registration confirmation email, this will explain all aspects of what to bring for this overnight trek.
There will be a short service at ANZAC Square and a safety briefing before we commence our long journey to ANZAC memorial Park – Walton Street Bridge The Gap for a 0515 dawn service, followed by a Gunfire breakfast at a nearby cafe and close to your cars.
The route taken consists of a 20.0km walk via city streets onto the Brisbane river walkway towards Toowong, after some local streets we will cross the Western motorway and commence our climb up to the lookout at Mt. Coot-tha for a well-earned rest and take in the views of the city below. We will then continue in a westerly direction along fire trails and down the western side of Mt. Coot-tha, we are almost home along local roads and tracks that will take us to ANZAC memorial Park – Walton Street Bridge, The Gap by 0515 in time for the official dawn service.
Event crew support staff – who have operated in the area and ranges for over 15 years, will be available should you need water or support. Medical professionals will be roaming the route in 4x4 vehicles and pushbikes.
PLEASE note that this walk is a controlled paced trek and we will be walking as one group at 3.5km to 4.5km per hour, the group must stay in between the front trek leader and the rear trek leader at all times. This event is being conducted in remote areas, through terrain that is rough, steep and sometimes with no or limited vehicle access. Therefore, only children aged 16+ can participate and must be registered and accompanied by an adult.
