Woods Point explorer Australia Day long weekend MEDIUM / HARD

Woods Point, VIC

See more trips

Australia Day long weekend hit some of the more notorious tracks Webber Creek, Brewery, Spud Spur, Pluto

Must have winch, ground clearance and at least one diff lock

Self sufficency for a few days incuding fuel food water etc.

Early stop each day relax with a few beers probably no campfires though.  My policy is a quiet camp respectful of others.

Friday night camp Big River area then to Woods Point Saturday explore tracks of interest.

Full recovery gear and working winch required some tracks will be steep.  Trip is weather dependent will check as we get closer.

 

Changed meet point to Stockmans Reward for those heading up Saturday.  Pauly and I will still be there Friday night but at a different location will catch up with everyone at Stockmans on Saturday. 

I'd like to try and get in a Woods Point Pub meal, maybe Saturday night (?) they need the trade after everyone was chaed out of the area over Xmas.

Very good trip is full this should be a cracker of a trip fellas.
Theres 3 heading up Friday night and 3 catching up Saturday Morning at the agreed time and place. Depending on what time we get to WP on Saturday there's a 'one way in one way out' track I havent done in more than 20 years we'll hit that or maybe Brewery or both, we'll see.
Sunday will be down Clarke Spur, up Abbot Link, then over to Pluto Track (down) then Spud Spur (up) Or... we might explore Pluto Link Track over to McGuires as I've never done these and wind our way up to Mt Selma, then down Violet town, through Jerico and Noble Spur. Will decide on the day then wind our way home Monday whew.
Remeber this is NOT a beginners trip there are some rocky and steep bits to clamber over that will make it a good day out !

Next time Matt, we had a good time albeit there was more to it than met the eye in the end but we ticked off everything except Webber Creek so theres a reason to head back later still.
Brewery had been graded or something so was a walk in the park )most disappointing) but Captain Underpants (or lack of) got lots of time in the seat hahahhaahaha
