Alpine NP and the agoney of choice

Hi all,

we are planning our next holiday tour in October. It´s our intention to do "a slight detour" to the Alpine NP with a Toyo bushcamper. Which way is the better alternative: the Corryong Benambra Road or the Omeo Hwy. to Omeo and why?

Thanks and best regards
Helga

It's a while since I was there Helga so this may be out of date: the Corryong - Benambra road was long, narrow and slow.

The Omeo Hway has more length sealed, the dirt sections are fairly wide but subject to corrugations. There are narrow bitumen sections south of Anglers Rest that demand some care. (Speaking as a motorcyclist, 4bies cutting corners on that road is a major health hazard!). North of Anglers Rest there are some nice camp spots on the river. The Blue Duck Hotel at Anglers Rest may be closed; it was last time friends passed by, but new owners may have it open by Oct.

Good luck with your trip.

Just to add: the Omeo 'Hway' is covered by Google Streetview, and there are also camp spots on the Mitta Mitta R south of Mitta Mitta township.
