Drive down the Tamboritha Road to the Arbuckle Junction , then down Moroka Rd to
The Horseyard Flat camp grounds. The campsite is appox 30kms from the Arbuckle Junction.
Nestled along the banks of the Moroka River in the Victorian High Country is a campsite called Horseyard Flat. It’s a bit of a misnomer, as there is no provision for horses there anymore (although the old hitching posts and split rails are still there).
I have not been to this place, it would be nice if someone who has comes along.
If not, we will have to manage as a group.
The plan is to setup camp on Thursday , stay all day Friday , leave at 11am on Saturday.
On Friday we could take a walk to the Moroka Hut.
There is also a nice little bushwalk over the footbridge and down an at-times steep path that will take you to several waterfalls and into the narrow, rocky Moroka Gorge.
From info on the web, there is water & toilet at the camp grounds.
Members should be self sufficient for the trip : fuel , food , water.

Number of vehicles for the trip , lets see what the response is , as its during the week.
