NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19.
With conditions now easing, we are now running new trips. YEA!!!
As more new trips are planned, check back here for latest news on up-coming trips.
This trip is an ideal introduction to the Victorian High Country for new members and will include a variety of tracks - mostly easy - with some verging on Medium. There will also be a few easy river crossings. This is a touring event stopping overnight at different locations to visit a number of iconic locations in the High Country where we will learn about the places and people that were among the early explorers and settlers. Plus: we will discover the mysterious connection with the Mornington Peninsula.
Approximately 500km (6.5 hours) from Dromana. Last reliable fuel is Omeo. Base camp at Native Dog Flat (NP camping area) with drop toilet. Caravan and camper van friendly albeit with about 40-50km of dirt road. Day trips of varying difficulty from camp. Must be self sufficient. No dogs as located in National Park.
Minimum fuel range of 400km from Omeo for day tripping.
The aim of this trip is to introduce members to snow driving in the High Country.
We drive into O'Tooles Campground on the Friday night and drive a loop to the summit of Mt. Selma and back to O'Tooles on the Saturday. Big camp fire to ward off the cold on Saturday night!
Sunday gives attendees the option of some sightseeing and walking around the gold mining areas and relics of the area or more 4x4ing in the area. Final track selection is dependant upon the weather and snow depths! Track standards vary from medium (Blue) to difficult (double black). So often the party is divided into two groups to cater for various experience levels and vehicle capabilities. Specialist off road camper trailers are OK for this trip and it is a dog friendly event – Due to the nature of the location, we cannot bring caravans.
NOW CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 CONDITIONS.
A three week trip with 2 weeks camping on Flinders Beach on North Stradbroke Island, Queensland. We are camped on the beach with basic toilet facilities but no showers, fresh water or power at the campsite. All facilities including fuel supermarkets, water hotels medical are available with a 5km beach drive. The focus is on relaxing, fishing, walking and enjoying the campfire at night. The return journey usually have a secondary focus – last year it was the Artesian Bore Bath track in Northern NSW. Trip standard is easy as beach driving is mainly limited to low tide when the sand is very hard. Caravan, camper and dog friendly.
