Day 12 Castlemaine to Harcourt North 28k
This is possibly the best and hardest day of the walk with two climbs, great bushland and some stunning scenery. Leaving Castlemaine you follow the riverflats to the east before climbing slowly northwards to a vantage point over the valley. You will then decend and commence the climb to the summit of Mount Alexander before dropping down to end the day at Harcourt North. Both climbs are not that strenuous.
