Has anyone recently travelled from Hotham Heights on the Rwins Road/ Twins Jeep Track? I am looking to go this way as far as Selwyn Creek road and and then head into the Buckland Valley.

A couple of years ago now, Colin did the same as you intend. It's an easy run with no surprises.

Track is not difficult but like most of the Vic High Country it will be likely you will encounter large amounts of fallen timber due to storms unless someone else has done the work. When you go make sure you have a good chainsaw as you are likely to need it.
Remember the go is to clear the track don't start a new one around the blockage. Clear the whole of the track not just enough to scrape through, it doesn't take a lot do do and may save a lot of body damage as some experienced recently going around and over the fallen trees. One of the claims we make to Parks is there is value returned by us clearing the tracks. When lazy sods go round it not only creates an unwanted new deviation but we are not pulling our weight with track clearances.

Did it 14 months ago with an Adventure Camper Trailer on the back. Opposite direction to you but no problems at all.

Thanks for the information. A good example of the networking advantages of Explor Oz.

I intend visiting the Upper Dargo area, heading up to Mt. Birregun on to the Dinner Plain and Victoria River tracks and throwing a line in the Victoria and Cobungra rivers before taking the route in question to the Buckland valley. Then via Scotchmans Creek track and Mt. Buggery onto the Buffalo River.

The Twin Jeeps track was the only part I was not familiar with.

Thanks once again.

We travelled it less than a month ago, cleared one big tree about a metre in dia, snigged it onto the track (was across it high side to low side) and then dragged/nudged it over the side.
We were by ourselves and had no problems, limited spots to pass oncoming traffic but didn't meet anyone.
