A Re-enactment of the Chinese Walk from Robe
6 – 25 May 2017
From Robe to Ballarat to the Parliament of Victoria
To commemorate the 160th anniversary of the Walk from Robe, the CCCA will take a team of walkers on a journey from Robe to Ballarat and then finish at the Parliament of Victoria. The walk will take place over 20 days in May 2017, along a route of over 500 kilometres finishing at Parliament House, Melbourne. Walkers will go through townships of historical significance, see many heritage sites, meet decedents of Chinese goldminers; and gaina truly unforgettable experience for those who take part.
A core team will walk the entire 500 kilometre route with smaller groups joining them along the way. A support team will accompany the team for the duration of the walk. CCCA is working with representatives from each town along the route to ensure the logistics of this huge undertaking are well managed; and just as importantly to engage the local communities and foster their participation in the event. We welcome all those who wish to walk the entire route or those who wish to walk significant sections, including the first section in Robe and final section to Parliament House.
