2020 The Way to St James Pilgrimage Walk

Journey through the beautiful Huon Valley to St James in Cygnet

Inspired by the famous Spanish El Camino of St James, this two day pilgrim walk will take you through the scenic and peaceful Huon Valley to a celebration at the Spanish mission styled Church of St James, nestled in the heart of Cygnet.

Through fellowship, reflection, rejoicing and ritual you will find an opportunity to reconnect with the spiritual dimensions of your life.

The pilgrimage commences on Saturday 11th January 2020 at 10.30am from the Mountain River Community Hall and finishes on Sunday 12th January 2020 at approx. 5pm at St James Church, Cygnet in the midst of the wonderful Cygnet Folk Festival.

The route covers rural roads in southern Tasmania and is best described as needing low to medium level fitness levels. Pilgrims are advised to attain reasonable bushwalking levels of fitness. Pilgrims must be a minimum age of 10.

Day one is from Mountain River to Ranelagh and is 14km, approximately.

Day two will take us from Ranelagh Church, with a bus trip to Cradoc to avoid narrow sections of the Channel Highway and then along the Cradoc Coast Road next to the Huon River and over the Silver Hill Road and Missing Link Road to Cygnet and is 15km, approximately.
