    Default Victoria High Country via Bendethera Valley Dec 24 - Jan 5

    Daphne and I are Christmas orphans so we are hitting the road again. This time we are heading to Victoria High Country via Bendethera Valley.

    Here's a rough outline of the itinerary

    24/12-26/12 Bendethera Valley (Hiking, 4wd, chill out)
    27/12 - Bendethera Valley to Berridale (via Tuross Falls/Cascades)
    28/12 - Berridale to Native Dog Flat (via Snowy River, swimming)
    29/12 - Native Dog Flat to Kings Spur Track (via Omeo)
    30/12 - Kings Spur Track to Dargo ( Blue Rag Range, Basalt North/South Track, Tabotville)
    31/12 - Dargo to Dargo (Billy Goat Bluff)
    01/01 - Dargo to Wonnangatta Station (Eaglevale, Herne Spur)
    02/01 - Wonnangatta Station to King Billy Track (Zeka Spur Track, Howitt Road)
    03/01 - King Billy Track to Howqua Gap Hut (Bluff Track)
    04/01 - Howqua Gap Hut to Lavington (via Craigs Hut, Tomahawk, Mt No 3, Mansfield)
    05/01 - Home

    Longest distance between fuel stops is approximately 250km. This is on steep terrain, often requiring 4WD LOW. Fuel Consumption may be double what you would normally use.
    We are planning to bring extra 3 Jerry cans for our JK 2 door.

    You can join in at a few different stages of the trip. Just let us know.
    If you are interested, we can send you a more detail itinerary.

    PS: We are doing a couple of dives with Seals at Narooma and will be staying at Dalmeny Campground Sat 22/12 & Sun 23/12. You are more than welcome to join us.
