FWDV Iconic Snowy River Tour

Description:   This is one of 4WD Victoria's Iconic Tours, taking in fantastic views of the Snowy River. The 286-kilometre drive is classified as Difficult in dry conditions, under Victoria’s 4WD Recreational Track Classification System – However, although there are challenging sections there is also a fair bit of easy driving through fantastic scenery including gorges, waterfalls, high ridges and beautiful forests. We'll likely camp at McKillop's bridge.

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

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

Trip Standard: Medium -  some difficult sections including, low-range hill climbs and some rocky tracks!

Fuel: a full tank ex Orbost or Lakes Entrance/similar     

Distance: Approx. distance to/from Orbost is 300 Km of largely high-range but some low-range driving.

Duration: 2 days

Convoy limit: 8 vehicles  

Meeting arrangements:  We plan to meet in the main street of Orbost (details TBA) 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 Orbost
