Vic High Country

Vic High Country

The aim of this trip is to penetrate deep into the Victorian High country and tackle some interesting tracks This trip will encounter steep mountain trails and long deep descents into valleys. There will be quite a few water crossings at varying depths (blinds may be required). The mountain environment can change at any time so be prepared for hot and possibly cold extreme conditions with potential for rain, snow, high winds and bush fires. Camping will be at different sites. Pit toilets are available at all camp sites but not showers. Hot showers will be available at Licola & Omeo camping fees will be charged at these two sites. There is a possibility that some vehicle recoveries may be required. Some of the areas that are on the proposed trip can be challenging and will require careful driving. Because of this only experienced club members with suitably modified vehicles will be allowed to participate. Vehicle inspection by the trip leader will be required. (Please note that I am being cautious because some of the areas we will be travelling are new to me and track conditions are unknown). Fuel will be available at Wangaratta,Licola, Dargo and Omeo. Vehicles must be able to travel 500 km in low range so fuel capacity will have to be taken into account. You must be able to carry water and food supplies for 7 days. Basic rations can be obtained at Licola, Dargo and Omeo. I aim to be back in Canberra Saturday afternoon and please note due to the character of the Victorian High Country all plans can change on the go.
