High Country Victoria, how wet is it now?

We are heading into the High Country in about 10 days and although we are fairly familiar with it generally we are wondering which areas are no go zones currently and which are ok. What are the rivers doing etc? We usually go in a group but this time it's just us so we don't want to get stuck too badly and be dills. Has anyone been up there recently? Chris.

Was in the Davies area over the recent LWE.
Following the O/N rain the track from Tom Groggin to Davies and onto Charlies became very slippery. TG up to davies could be a challenge for many vehicels under these conditions.
The trip up Pinibar on the Saturday was uneventful - nice dry track.

We spent a week from mansfield to Hotham via Lucinda and Dargo. Excellent tracks and a fair bit of water/mud on them. All passable with at least one other car and a well set up car.Check out the "small" hole we got stuck in on Caerters Road out of Merrijig on day one.Bogged on Carters Road

Absolutely not.

If Carters Road was closed then it was on Plain Creek Track. I did not take a lot of notice as I was just sitting back enjoying the drive and following those in front. There was some confusion as to which road we were on. But I do know that we DID NOT PASS any Road Closed signs.

In any event I would not be surprised if the track we were on was closed after the next ranger saw it.

In general we've had a few nice days lately that have dried the tracks up. Rivers have a steady flow but the vast majority can presently be crossed if you have a snorkel. All the bog holes are full and gully tracks wet & slippery.
Forecast sees a couple of wet days later in the week but no major falls expected.
The only area that still has alot of track closures due to flood damage is around Mt Stirling. Heaps of trees down everywhere.
Have fun. Craig...............
