Hi Everyone, we are based in outer Subs of Melbourne and looking to plan a two week trip and would like to see what some of you guys have as suggestions. Last year we did 2 weeks to do broken Hill and Mungo, this year two weeks at Flinders Ranges and i was thinking Tom Groggin area for the next one? we only have an old 60 series that is fairly stock Diesel and tow a camper. we travel alone so cant go through too much as any recovery, we would have to rely on ourselves. Blue Mountains was another thought? i am really interested in any other thoughts that members have had. Happy to base a camp and travel out each day touring, hiking, kayaking, fishing, or whatever else is around.

Hi.
Have you done the Vic High Country. Any number of suitable places for a base camp and lots of options for day trips.

Hi Jon W,
i have done the Talbotville, Dargo across to Haunted Stream, Around Ensayand back through Croajingalong areas. I have done little from Omeo, Benambra, North or East from these or over Hotham either. i just saw one trek over Harrietville which looks interesting, inc Blue Rag which i want to do as well.

Not sure if this is what you are after but this is an interesting mix of black top touring with plenty of opportunity to go off road and explore. It is a really good package. Pack your woollies if you plan to go in the next few months. I go in winter but spend a bit extra and stay in the pubs. Check conditions. Road can closed due to snow south of Oberon.

Really good website. Maps. Travel tips. Accommodation/campsites. Some pretty spectacular country to explore.

Make sure you pack a camera.

Here are a few location suggestions that you could check out using Mr Google and using the search facility on this site (where the would certainly be a few blogs about some of these places):

Mallacoota, Point Hicks area and Crojingalong NP
Grampians
Brindabella Ranges and NP west of Canberra
Along the Murray and Darling Rivers
Blue Mountains area NSW

Cheers,

Val

Hi Val,

Thanks for the suggestions. I think from the last post and yours the Brindabellas or Blue mountians have it. time to do some study.

My first thought to your request was the Grampians. But I'm not sure if it's "remote" enough for you guys based on where you've been recently. We live in North East Vic so I can pretty much advise that unless you've snow chains don't both using the road from Khancoban to get to Tom Groggin this time of year. Weather can deteriorate very quickly in those parts. However if you're approaching from Omeo/Benambra you should be right.
