Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone has done the trek from Benambra (Vic) to Tom Groggin in (NSW) via Mt Pinnibar. It is in the book 4WD treks of the High Country.
What I was wondering is how long this trek takes to do, as I am planning to leave from Bright in the morning and set up camp at Geehi that afternoon.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks Ozzy

Yup - dine it a few times. Nice little trip. You'll fit it in in a day - it's quite a short trip. Just stop to smell the roses along the way - it's a pretty area :)

Just call NPWS a day or two before to check the Murray River level - it should be OK, there hasn;t been much rain lately. Our place on the Murrumbidgee has the lowest river levels we've seen in quite a while if that's any indication.

I just crossed the river at Tom Groggin on the weekend and the river was the lowest I have seen it for a long time.
Level of my side steps on the Troopy.

Hey Ozzy,

If its raining the Mt. Pinnibar track will be a bunch of fun......lock and load....sliding all the way.

I did the trip from Limestone to Mt Pinnibar then down to Wheelers Creek then Benambra ect ect. last week - fairly easy trip.
I spoke to a guy at Wheelers who said the Tom Groggib crossing was high ?? - he was a bit inexperienced though!

Colin,

I gather you didn't drop down the Mt Pinnibar track to Tom Groggin from the trig point....

Regards

No I didn't, as I have been to Tom Groggin/Geehi several times before - the deep river crossing is a problem for my car !
I finished up at Mt Pinnabar by accident really - I came across a tree across a track further to the south, and headed to Wheelers Cr Via Mt Pinnabar.

Regards
Colin
