Dargo to Thompson damn HARD

Dargo/licola/aberfeldy, VIC

See more trips

Meet up @ kingswell bridge(head towards dargo, take crooked river/Wonnangatta rd on your left just befor dargo) Saturday morning. Might head up Friday night as there is room to camp at the bridge (if a few of us go Friday night and don't get to camp overly late May do a short night drive on a few tracks). Saturday go up billy goats, may go to the pinnacles if the weather is good, take moroka rd to b2 track, than onto b1 track camping @ chromite mine camp ground. Sunday do chromite mine track, burgoines track all the way to Macalister river gorge to camp (depending on flow of the river we may have to turn around and go in via cheynes bridge track, still worth the drive). Monday go up greens hills track to mt useful, onto toomstar track than toombon track finishing near the damn wall. 

 

All cars must have full size spare, front and rear rated recovery points, enough fuel for 3 full days of driving(last place for fuel will be Stratford) and self sufficient for 3 days of bush camping. Will be cold still so pack warm. Please keep in mind that this trip requires a Monday off work so please be sure you can get the day off before committing. I put a photo of the meeting place up, it's the blue dot and can you please let me know wether you will be coming up Friday night or Saturday morning.
