Comment: Drouin to Woods Point

Maybe I'm reading this wrong but it seems like is track is mainly sealed roads (and main roads at that)? This seems especially so from Drouin to Noojee...
If it is sealed roads can anyone suggest something off-road (but not overly difficult)?
Cheers!!

Hi Philby

You are basically correct.
Bitumen to Noogee then another couple of km of bitumen from Noogee towards Loch Valley, then dirt to Matlock with a little bit of bitumen around the old Thompson River Camp, then dirt to Woods Point.
Dirt road not too bad but watch out for log trucks. They use Ch 40.
Happy 4 wheeling

G'day,
You can take on standard car on that road but some great opportunities for 4wd treks if you turn off it. Varying standards & plenty of river crossings dependant on weather.

Not sure when you want to go but fires up that way at the moment & snowfalls in winter.

Haven't bought this book but a friend reckons it's got some great trips in it.
"4WD Treks Close to Melbourne"

Enjoy

If its 4WDriving excitement you want, take a look at the RoofTop maps for tracks out of Woods Point and you'll find all you can handle, I assure you! Suggest you try the other Trek Notes on this site in the Vic High Country list such as Woods Point to Porepunkah. Enjoy!
