Hi guys,

We are heading up to Big River just outside of Lake Eildon in Victoria this coming weekend. Im looking forward to landing some nice rainbows in the rivers and creeks but am more interested in getting my car dirty for the first time!

I just bort an '05 Prado and want to know if anyone knows the area and could suggest a good beginner 4wd tracks? I am heading up with a mate who has some decent experiece as well as winch/recovery gear but as my car is pretty much stock at this stage I dont want to get in over my head!

More on the car:

3ltr t/d, Auto, factory aluminium ftont bar, Cooper AT/R tyres, auto

Its got dual 90ltr diesel tanks and front spotties too. So with stock suspension and All Terrain and very little experience tyres Im limited to beginner type tracks so any suggestions where I could gain some experience in this area would be great!

Thanks!
Mat

hi there buy yourself a roof top map there pretty good you will find most tracks closed for the winter but you will find a few to play on! by the way the rivers and creeks are closed to fishing at the moment you can fish eildon itself though!

Not sure how you'll go with the fishing as there's heavy rain due this week so the creeks will be running high at a guess. A interesting track worth a drive is accross the ridge from Jamieson to Matlock via Mt Terrible. May even be a little snow accross the top as well.
Cheers Craig..............
