To be discussed. Some may stay in Walhalla for their own tour.
Weekend trip to Walhalla area to explore the amazing area. Walhalla is an old gold mine town with a lot of amazing history. The trip will be suitable for 4wders who are new to 4wding. There will be creek crossing, steep decent and ascent, and couple rocky sections. There are couple of campsites we can stay for the night. There will be drop toliets and plenty of firewood.
You will need to be self-sufficient. We will fill up at Moe, and there will be around 70-100km offroad. You should not need jerry can but always good to bring if you are concern about your fuel consumption. Bring your own recovery gear and check your winch (if you have one) to make sure it's in working condition. It's unlikely that you will need a winch on this trip but be prepared for anything.
I will have a quick briefing before the trip to ensure you understand the basic of 4wding.
It will be an early start to get the most out of the day. Meeting at 7am in Moe.
