Victorian High Country 2017-2018

Trip Leader: Andrew Schulze

I have been assessing the best way to get a taste of the High Country with the short time some have over Christmas. So we can add some Australian history to the mix the first couple of days will be in Glenrowan (Ned Kelly experience).  Glenrowan will be the meeting place so find your own way there.  Its close to Wangaratta so that means last minute shopping.  From there a nice leisurely drive to Swifts Creek for 3 days to check out the Hidden Stream track, some Villas and other sights of interest. Also there are some great tracks around that area, and a small cheap caravan park that would appreciate the business, no bookings necessary we'll check in at the General store on the day.

From Swifts Creek we will head to a camp site north of Dargo, long drop loos and a nice deep river to swim in. From here we can do lots of drives; Blue Rag Range; Billy Goat Track; the Pinnacles to name just a few.  There is also a Gold area around here with lots of ruins and sights like Harrisons cut. We can also sort of (read fun) get to Wonnangatta station for a look as well.

This way over 2 weeks we camp only 3 times. For those with vans, campers etc it is much easier getting back out through Dargo's main road.

If you are interested register on the Web site, visitors welcome.
