This route ventures deep into alpine country so seasonal track closures during winter will render this trip impassable at times. Signs and locked gates will confirm closures. Also see Parks Vic for further details.
In the high altitudes (1500m) you'll see Snow Gums and wildflowers
; whilst in the lower altitudes you'll drive beneath the rainforest canopy with ferns fringing the track. The ever-changing altitude and scenery is a large part of the delight of a 4WD adventure through the Victorian High Country.
