Hi all
We are going to travel from Mansfield to Bermagui late November over the Alpine Way.
Our van is 17ft and 2 tonnes with a beautiful Pajero as tow vehicle.

Has anyone been over this road and is it OK for vans.

Thanks for your help

Yes, a bit bendy but a good road. Some tight corners so watch for other traffic.

Plenty of coffe/picnic stops if you wish.

Hullo Graeme

We were through there about 7 months ago with the LC and Tvan.

The section from just south of Khancoban to well south of Murray 1 PS is narrow as well as steep and windy. I seem to recall that there were signs about no trucks due to the narrowness. Given that a caravan is as wide as a truck, you may want to check with National Parks HQ at Khancoban.

The section up from Tom Groggin to Dead Horse Gap is steep and windy as well, but not as narrow. Like any part of the High Country, snow can fall any time of the year and with very little notice.

Agree very narrow and twisty. Great on a Motorbike, I go that way when going to Phillip Island for the Moto GP.

You would need to be very careful towing a Van.
