Day 1: Left Mansfield at 9.30am, traveled to Sheepyard Flat, The Bluff Hut, along Howitt High Plains Road (super high way on dirt) and past the Snowy Plains Airstrip (one of the highest in Australia, 1630m) then onto Moroka Road and spent the night at Horse Yard Flat.
Day 2: From Horse Yard Flat along Moroka Road onto The Pinnacles Rd went to The Pinnacles…..awesome views and worth the walk! From there onto Marathon Rd we went down to Braigolong (A super high way as far as dirt roads go) then up to Dargo where we had a fantastic hangover lunch at the Dargo River Inn (worth stopping there) After lunch we drove up the Dargo High Plains Rd and turned off to Ritchie Road and camped the night at 25 mile creek.
Day 3: Drove to 30 mile Creek (a better looking camp site) and past the historical Railway Carriage onto Basalt Knob Track. This track then turns into Blue Rag Range Track, possibly the longest public access vehicle descent dead end track in Australia (over 1200 vertical metres) This track has the best views! From here we doubled back the full length of the Blue Rag Range Track and ended up on the Dargo High Plains Rd not far from the Great Alpine Rd on Mt Hotham. From here it was all down hill on the main rd to get back home and unpack from an awesome trip!
Unfortunately my husband decided it was best not to go the full length of the Blue Rag Track (I have to say that he didnt hear any complaints from me about it) We stayed back and watch his younger brothers do it for us. I got some of it on video which has resulted in our very first upload to YouTube :) If you turn the volume up you can here us talking in the background
