Taking its name from the local Beeripmo balug Aboriginals, who refer to their home as “Beereep-Beereep”, meaning wild mount, today’s Beeripmo Walk takes you on a journey through the many different environs known to the regions indigenous community.
The operators of Cave Hill Creek have been respectfully leading educational explorations along the trail for many years; and in 2016 Cave Hill Creek claimed the Victoria Tourism Industry Council Small Business Award for their dedication to the education tourism sector focussing on learning about Aboriginal history and culture.
With over 15 years of experience as an outdoor educator, Cave Hill Creek’s expedition coordinator Simon Milligan was honoured to accept this award for his hard work in designing and leading a range of tailored expeditions along the Beeripmo Walk.
The Beeripmo Walk presents a rewarding challenge for intermediate bushwalkers, with campsites scattered between the cool fern gullies and towering alpine forests where you can find toilets and water and fire pits. The track takes in the impressive landscape of the surrounding Mount Cole and Buangor State Park, as well as views of Mt Langi Ghiran and the distant Grampians.
