I know it's months away yet but how about a members/readers get-together for New Years Eve in say a place like Wonnangatta. I hear you say mobs of vehicles up theter at that time of the year, but there is plenty of room along the river.

Anyway just a thought, meet there on the 31st or get there when you like, and have a round the fire session/yarn spinning on NYE.

What do you say?

G'day Glava Man, finished that bottle off yet?
Wonnangatta is a great little drive in from Licola past Mt Tamboritha and down the mountain into a beautiful valley. You can also come from the Dargo end. Either way it's a nice drive. Ron Moon's book on Bush Tracks of Victoria 3rd edition has the treck notes in it. If you can't find a copy of them, contact me on NOTTHECAPITALSalpaca@riverland.net.auAl Symers

G'day Glayva Man, from the Bendigo side you can get to the Gatta by going through Mansfield, past Clear Hills, Mt Howitt and down Zeka Spur, the other way is from Bright, Buckland Valley, Mt Selwyn and then via Mt Sarah.

Some good driving, great mountains and a nice river to camp by. Good for familys.

IMHO the Tasman should never be attempted without a snorkel and snatch straps attached front and rear. Once set up give it a good run up and keep your foot down. In no time at all your problems will be over.Laterally Literal

Hi Tony,

I had a chat with Mrs Wombat last night and we think it sounds like a bloody goog idea for NYE. Is it possible to tow an off-road camper trailer in to the camp site?"Live today as if there may be no tomorrow"

Go in via Lake Buffalo and up to Barry Saddle, it's via the West Buffalo Divide Track, T/L at Barry Saddle (to the right is the walking track) then take your first right, this is Riley Creek track, keep to your right on this track until you cross the river and come to a T intersection T/L and head down the valley.

After 7k you come to the Ruins.

The T/O to West Buffalo track is about 40k passed Lake Buffalo entrance.

If you come this way T/O passed Glenrowan and head for Myrtleford when you get to Milawa drop into the cheese factory and pick up some nice cheese. Out of Myrtleford take the Buffalo River Road.

There is a long riverside area with long drop, to the north of the old house site and graveyard, i think that it would meet most people's needs.

There is a area nearby that might be better for thoes with little ones at foot, as it's further away from the water.
