Date and time: Sat. 26 October 2019, 9am
Description: We will base camp at Glenpatrick Reserve Camping Ground, which has flushing toilets. Access is suitable for campers and caravans. We will be exploring tracks in both the west and east of the Pyrenees Range State Forest and Landsborough Nature Conservation Reserve. Kilometres travelled each day will be relatively short and expected to allow time to visit a local winery before returning to camp on Saturday afternoon and to return home in reasonable time on Sunday, including for those cars returning to camp to pick up trailers and vans.
Weather: Extreme weather is not expected in the region, so simply keep an eye on the weather forecast.
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 – possibly hard if wet and slippery.
Fuel: Fuel is available in Avoca, which is 27km from the campground.
Distance: Glenpatrick Reserve Camping Ground is approximately 190km from Melbourne.
Duration: 2 days
Convoy limit: 10 vehicles
Meeting arrangements: We plan to meet in Glenpatrick Reserve Camping Ground and depart at 9.00am. We will aim to finish mid-afternoon on Sunday.
