I'm planning a trip with a few mates from Brisbane to the Lighthouse at Wilsons prom and returning via Mansfield to Dargo and then across the Limestone rd to Suggan Buggan and up the Barry Way to home. On the way down I thought a side trip to the highest rd in Australia would be Cool, how long would it take for the side trip.

I was a little confused about your route there, but I have recently driven from Corryoung to Omeo via Mt Pinnibar to Jindabyne.
My advice would be from corryong to drive south to Scrubby creek track which is sign posted. It is a very steep ascent to get up off the Benambra/Corryong rd to the east but once on top it is great drive. Head W to MT Pinnibar which is fantastic and 360 degree views including Mt Kosioszko. Great drive from there east to Tom Groggin Murray river crossing (half a day). At this point you could cross the Murray river and head to Jindabyne, but if you have the time I would go South down Davies Plain track and linking up with your Limestone rd west to Suyggan Buggan then Barry way as planned? I havn't completed the Davies Plain trk as it was closed due to storm damage but is open now.
Great country, a few brumbies, fantastic bush and you can still see the devastation form the fires in some places. A good map to get is High Country Victoria 1:25000 (Hema).
Have a good one, any track you pick down in that area will be great.
Be gentle on the vehicle as it is rocky and rough in places but steady as she goes and you will have a good time.
Hope this helps.

I'd allow a full day to head up the Nariel Valley, accross to Mt Pinnabar via Wheelers creek then over Mt Gibbo & down to Benambra.

G'day Mick,
Great country, will be a fantastic trip. (360 views)
Just be aware that trees can come down any time, so carry a chainsaw and a drag chain for the just in case.
