Hike the Night Challenge








BOOKING INFO: Try and book all 4 team members under the one booking. If you need to book separately, please make a note in the booking so we know which team you are on!

This is the Hike the Night Challenge! A team event, walking 28km, through the night from Dromana to Cape Schanck. Your team goal is to complete the 28km and arrive in time for a well deserved sunrise breakfast! Feeling very proud of your accomplishment.

Teams of 4
There’s something special about walking under the stars so why not share it with others, 3 others to be precise. This year’s Hike the Night is a team event, 4 people per team. If you’re looking for a team, get in touch and we’ll help you find your team!

What to expect
On the evening, we meet at Cape Schanck reserve carpark at 9:30pm, then jump on a bus to Dromana to the starting point. The main walk is through a bushland corridor which stretches across the peninsula back to Cape Schank. You will experience beautiful eucalyptus forests, quaint country laneways, and the stunning basalt cliffs of Bushrangers Bay, all under the night sky. And the soundtrack to your walk will be nature at its best… nocturnal animals going about their night, waves crashing and the crunch of your boots. Cape Schanck is well-known as a stargazing and astrophotography location, so don’t forget to take a camera to capture the moment or simply enjoy the experience of walking under the stars. Your walk will end with a delicious sunrise breakfast cooked by our guides, and a celebration of your achievement with other night hikers.

“Navigation isn’t my strong point” – no problem!
This is a semi-guided walk. There will be guides situated at safety checkpoints along the way and a guide on the trail at all times. The track is well marked and easy to follow; we also provide you with a map as a backup and so you can track your progress along the way. The walk itself is fairly gentle, with a hill at the start is a good ‘wake up’ and gets the blood pumping.

What we do and what you do
We provide safety, motivation, yummy snacks and hot drinks, but it’s your job to get your team from checkpoint to checkpoint, which means you’ll need to motivate each other and work as a team. Please note that this is not a race! The goal is simply to enjoy yourself, stay safe, and make it through the night! We take everybody’s safety seriously, and we may sometimes ask teams to wait a bit longer at a checkpoint while we ensure the safety of all teams.

What our adventurers have said

"I am always looking for new, uncharted adventures and Hike the Night quickly caught my eye. I loved that it was a team challenge to do with my friends and it was supported by the TSA team. We would have never done something like this on our own but felt completely safe knowing TSA had every detail covered. The night was so interesting walking though the many landscapes of the Mornington Peninsula and the sunrise at the end was absolutely magical. Hike the Night was a perfect mix of crazy adventure, fitness and fun!" - Nicole Walker
