Border Track Feedback

Hey, We are also planning to a trip from Melbourne to do Border Track. We will have around 3 or 4 vehicles and travelling North to South. We plan on departing around about Thursday the 1st. I assume all tracks are open then?

North to South from Melbourne, I reckon you will be in deep water then, or have I misunderstood something?

North to South you can do the one way section of track without having to muck around. So you go to the top of the track and head south towards Melb, generally speaking.

Thanks Peter I knew I may have had the bull by the tail and I can see glossing over the words "to do" brought about my downfall.

We are heading south from Bathurst to do the Great Ocean Road in a couple of weeks so I had better read the maps right getting through the outskirts.

If you are going from Melbourne, think about going to Pinaroo via Rainbow and Wyperfeld National Park and then down the Border Track

Best to ring nat parks at Pinneroo to see if they have extended the fire ban/ and closing of the one way part of the track.
Also worth visiting if your near nargkat is the Mt Rescue park.
Rabbit island is a pleasant campsite area too.
Mt rescue point is worth driving to, and walking the last bit of the climb to great views of the area.

cheers

Sorry for the delay,
I think we are now planning to go the weekend after Easter now. Probably heading up on the Thursday night, returning on the Sunday. Basically so far we are looking at doing a similar route that is shown on the Track Map (just in reverse). We would like to go up to the Murray and the tip of vic, probably head across the boarder, and then enter bordertrack and camp in the Murray sunset NP (from memory) at the camp site shown. then the next day, head to pinaroo and refuel, and then head back in to the southern part of the track, again camping probably near rainbow, or what that lake is that was mentioned (sorry i don't have the map, so this is from memory).

All ideas appreciated, since this is our first visit there, and will probably contact parks before we depart just to confirm its all open and that.
