Registration is now open for Mountain to Mouth 2018.

4 -5 May 2018

Mountain to Mouth (M~M) is Geelong’s multi-award winning extreme arts walk - an 80 kilometre biennial journey of discovery over two days. M~M 2018 will be held 4-5 May.

M~M begins at the You Yangs mountain range, crosses Geelong’s industrial heartland at nightfall and arrives in the city centre to collide with Geelong After Dark, a night of extreme and unexpected arts.

In the tradition of Wadawurrung traditional owners, M~M creates a contemporary songline across the Geelong and Queenscliffe regions. Artworks installed in Walking Circle landmarks feature at the 12 Songline Stations along the way.

M~M offers walkers the opportunity to register for the experience of their choice - the distance, the challenge, the terrain. M~M offers experiences that are free to all -  ceremonies marking significant points along the walk.

Ceremonies that will mark the beginning, middle and end of M~M2018: 

  1. Gathering of the Elders at Big Rock, You Yangs: Friday 4 May
  2. Gathering of the City, Johnstone Park, Geelong City Centre: Friday 4 May
  3. Gathering of the Elements, Barwon Heads River: Saturday 5 May

Discover Geelong, our land and our waterways,  walk with us, follow the ceremonial sculptural ‘Canoe’ and enjoy the amazing ephemeral artworks at Walking Circles along the 80km contemporary songline route.
