Can anyone recommend a safe trip in or around the high country that I could do on my own in a reasonably well setup Lc100 in June. Obviously it will be cold so just looking for suggestions of what roads may be open./

Dutts,

There won't be much of the good stuff available. Have a look at the Parks Victoria or 4WD Victoria sites for the track closures.

Throw in sleeping bags , etc just in case you slip off the road and get stuck.

Suggest going around the High Country at this time of year and head a bit north for a few hours to QLD, great fishing and camping on the beach and maybe even a suntan for the other half.
Wouldnt you prefer to be in thongs and shorts on the beach than thermals.

Contry to common belief there are heaps of great tracks open around the High Country during winter, the problem being even the easy ones can become difficult with a change in the weather making it hard to recommend a safe route for someone travelling on their own.
The Strathbogie Ranges has a handful of track closures during winter but still has a great maze of easy to intermediate driving around Mt Starthbogie, Tallangarlook, Mt Separation & Mt Buggery. The Rooftops map of the area gives you plenty of detail on where to go & what to see including the cyrstal & gold mining areas, plane crash site, small waterfalls & great lookouts.
The Big River accross to Mt Terrible has many tracks open as well but again there are a few steep slippery ones not for the solo traveller.
Have fun Dutts.
