This area of the High Country accessed from Benambra via Omeo offers some of the most remote, challenging and spectacular 4WD touring in the whole region. On this trip we'll base camp at Charlie Creek, where there is usually space for a medium size group even if this is on one of the busiest weekends of the year in the high country.
