Hi guys I am looking at driving from Jindabyne to Omeo via Suggan Buggan and was wondering what the road is like from Suggan Buggan. I will be towing my camper trailer and will be by myself(including the fam). I have the Hema High Country map and the road looks to be a fairly decent dirt road but as I have never driven it would like some first hand knowledge before I get too far into it to turn around.

Cheers for any info

I assume you plan to take the Limestone-Black Mountain Rd. If so, it is a good dirt road. Just one point of caution. You are up at 1,000 metres on the road in places, so weather & seasonal track closures can be issues. So its OK in the dry and between Nov - Jun.

If you want more adventure, you could take the Macfarlane Flat Track. This is 4WD. You dont say if your camper trailer is suited to 4WD or not. It has some great hill climbs and sharp descents, and gives you great panoramic views around the border region.

G'day Clint, the climb out of Suggan Buggan will be fun for those on the left hand side of the car. There are a few little pinches but you'll be right if you take it easy and keep a look out for oncoming traffic. A beaut drive it is.

if it's the Barry Way your using then should be no problems with a camper although it gets narrow in places and as mentioned above, you'll be on the "downhill side"so watch out for oncoming traffic. Great views and a couple of places you can stop and take a photo.

A lovely drive not to be missed. I went through there towing a 15' boat. No problems whatsoever other than the front of the boat being shot peened ready for a respray.
