    Licola to Heyfield

    Date and time:  9:00am on 11th January to 4:00pm 12th January

    Description:  This will be a weekend trip to some interesting high country destinations.  The trip will commence at 9:00 at Licola which is about 3 hours drive from the Melbourne CBD.  On Saturday we will drive up onto the high plains and over Mt Wellington for some spectacular views with Bass Strait in the distance, then on to Millers hut for lunch.  The RRCV participated in the restoration of Millers Hut in the mid 1990’s.  We have recently offered to work with the Victorian Mountains Hut Association and Parks Victoria to undertake any further work that may be required in and around the hut, so we will make an assessment of what may be required while we are there.  After Lunch we will retrace part of our route back to Horseyard Flat, visiting Moroka Hut and the Pinnacles (time permitting) for some more spectacular high country views.

    On the Sunday, we will follow the Valencia Creek Track, Old Moroka Road and Mt Angus Road back down to Heyfield with some possible side trips to explore interesting tracks along the way.

    The planned route is subject to weather and fire danger restrictions.

    Weather:  Alpine environment, potentially cold and wet.  Watch the Alpine weather forecast leading up to the trip and bring appropriate clothing, footwear and camping gear.

    Equipment:  Vehicles need to have low range 4WD capability with good ground clearance (200mm minimum), good all-terrain tyres (60 profile minimum) and UHF radio equipped (or one borrowed from the club).  Usual recovery gear should be carried. 

    No camper trailers, pets or firearms

    Trip Standard:  Medium/Hard - some steep, low-range hill climbs and some rocky tracks!

    Fuel:  a full tank ex Traralgon. 

    Distance:  Approx. distance from Licola to Heyfield is approximately 180 Km of high and low range driving.

    Duration: 2 days

    Convoy limit: 8 vehicles

    Meeting arrangements:  We will meet at the Licola general store and depart at 9.00am sharp.  If you plan to get coffee beforehand then you will need to arrive a little earlier.  We will aim to finish about 4.00pm in Heyfield

    Mt Buller, surrounding mountains and cattlemen’s huts

    Date and time:  8:00 am Saturday 8th February to 4:00 pm Sunday 9th February

    Description:  This weekend is to be based at the Icicles Ski Club lodge on Mount Buller (approximately 3 hours from Melbourne).  It will be a base camp using club lodge accommodation within the Mount Buller Alpine Village.  Lodge accommodation cost is approximately $35 for adults and $26 for children per person/night, available on both Friday and Saturday nights.  The lodge has individual rooms varying from 2 to 5 bunk beds and bathrooms shared between 2 rooms.  There is also a well equipped kitchen and we will be self-catering for meals within the lodge.

    NB Previous years we were the only party in the lodge, but it may be shared with Icicles club members and if so, then members may have to share a bunk room with other members. Also if the trip is full, then all people in your vehicle will need to share a bunk room.

    This is an ideal trip for members that want to experience great 4WDriving, mountain views and high country history without camping.  Highlights include stunning views from Mount Stirling, Bluff hut, Lovicks hut (to name a few), plus some challenging 4WD tracks.  Two day trips are proposed.

    Day 1.  Starting at Mount Buller, we drive to Howqua Gap via the Corn Hill Road and around the Circuit Road to Bindaree Falls.  There is a short walk to the falls and the outlook down the valley from behind the waterfall can be quite spectacular.  Then we descend into the Howqua valley to Bindaree Hut and climb up to Bluff hut and Lovicks hut for magnificent views back toward Mt Buller.  We then travel back to the lodge via Refrigerator Gap.  Back at the lodge, we can walk to the summit to see where we have travelled for the day and hopefully to view a spectacular sunset and/or wander around the Alpine Village.  Distance for the day is approximately 140 km

    Day 2.  Starting again at Mount Buller, we head down to Howqua Gap and across the Clear Hills Track to just below the summit of Mount Stirling where a 200m walk to the summit provides panoramic views of the Alps.  We continue along the Clear Hills Track to Craigs Hut, where the Man from Snowy River was filmed.  We then descend into the King river valley and ford the river a few times before arriving at Pineapple Flat for lunch.  Back across the King River to Weston Track, we follow Carters and Buttercup Roads to Merrijig and continue on to Mansfield for an end of trip coffee before a 2.5 hour drive back to Melbourne.  Distance for the day is approximately 110 km

    Due to the need to finalise accommodation numbers with Icicles, cut-off date for sign-up is Wednesday 15th January (or when the convoy limit is reached).

    Please advise in the comments in your sign-up, the number of adults and children in your party and the number of nights accommodation required (Fri/Sat or just Sat).  Following that date, members will be advised of payment arrangements and meeting arrangements for either Friday evening or Saturday morning, depending arrival times at Mount Buller.

    Trip standard:  Medium with some rocky tracks and river crossings.

    Equipment:  Well-maintained vehicle with low range, good clearance (200mm minimum recommended), good all terrain tyres (60 profile minimum recommended), recovery points, standard recovery gear including dampener, rated snatch strap and shackles, shovel and UHF radio (or one borrowed from the club).

    Fuel:  Full tank ex Mansfield (the BP servo closes at 9:00 pm Friday night, but there is a 24 hr Caltex servo near the second roundabout driving through town from Melbourne)).  Approx. distance 250 Km. of mainly low range driving over 2 days.

    Weather:  Alpine environment, potentially cold and wet. Bring appropriate clothing and footwear.

    Convoy limit:  11 vehicles.

    Duration:  2 days.

    Meeting Arrangements:  8:00 am Saturday morning at Icicles Ski Lodge. Stirling Road Mt Buller Village.  We will aim to finish in Mansfield by 4:00 pm Sunday.
