Four Day 4WD Glamping Tour & Gourmet Dining Experience ~ Australia Day Long Weekend Jan 25th 2020

Day One - We meet in the heart of the High Country at the town of Dargo where our tour leader will hand out CB radios to those that don’t have one and run through some basic info such as our convoy procedures and radio etiquette. This will be our last chance to refuel and purchase any supplies. Once everyone is ready we will head out of town on the Dargo High Plains Rd to the site of the former gold mining town, Grant. Here we will drop our tire pressures, engage low range and begin a breathtaking descent down McMillans Rd to Talbotville.In Talbotville we will be served lunch and have a coffee or tea, then head back onto the tracks for our first river crossing and through to the summit of Mt Cynthia where we will have a snack for afternoon tea. Dropping back down into the valley we will cross the Wonnangatta River at Eaglevale then follow it downstream to our well-equipped basecamp at Crooked River.

We’ll have some time to get settled into our new home and maybe have a swim or a fish before dinner is served at around 7pm. After dinner, our tour leader will give us a rundown of what to expect for the next few days and some basic 4WD training.
 
Day Two - After a freshly ground espresso and a delicious breakfast at our base camp we will head up the Wonnangatta Valley to the famous Wonnangatta station, breaking for lunch at the hut then returning via the exciting and challenging climb up Herne Spur which features several river crossings and a steep rocky scramble.
 
Day Three - Beginning again with a mouth-watering hot breakfast at camp, today we will be travelling through the Dargo High Plains to Blue Rag Range for what is widely believed to be the most scenic ridgeline drive in the country. Depending on track conditions and the time available we may drop all the way to the bottom, or turn around at the high point.
 
Day Four - After a few days gaining confidence and skills we are now ready for our final challenge, the famous Billy Goat Bluff track! The ascent begins just a short distance from our base camp and climbs steeply up towards the Pinnacles where we will serve morning tea and take the short walk up to the fire tower where we’ll enjoy 360 views of the surrounding ranges. After soaking up the stunning views we will head back down Billy Goat Bluff track to basecamp where the tour will conclude after lunch.
