4x4 Recce run at Eildon/Big River - Explore new tracks HARD

Eildon / Big River, VIC

See more trips

Going to check out the area and hopefully we can find some good technical tracks. I expect the tracks will be steep, rocky and very slippery so be prepared for lots of winching. You will need to be self-sufficient for 2 days. 

 

Your vehicle has to be in top condition. 

I expect you are a very experienced 4wder (3 years+) with a well setup 4wd ready for tackle anything. Your vehicle need to have at least one traction aid (locker) or traction control, decent mud tyres (with tyre size no smaller than 33" unless you are twin locked)  and resonable suspension lift (no less than 2.5" lift). 

 

Note: This is a hard trip and I am not responsible and liable for your safety or vehicle condition. This is not a trip for idiot or hoon and speed is not your friend in this trip.

 

Primary Camp Ground (Kendalls B aka The Boys Camping Area)

 

 

Secondary camp ground

For whatever reasons we cannot use The Boys Camping Area (Kendall B), we will use another camp ground 15 mins away, called Ned Gully Camping Ground, located at Cathedral Range State Park. The location is here (https://goo.gl/maps/WSj7JEP73EE2). Unfortunately for this camp ground, the camping area is separate from carpark so it may not be as convenient as the first camp ground. I will also inform everyone if we do decide to move to the second camp ground, Ned Gully Camping Ground.
