Arrive Friday 1 March, 4WD day trips on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 March, 2019

Red Robin Mine – Falls Creek / Mayford Ghost Town

Skill Level – Some 4WD experience Required.

Some of Australia’s best 4 wheel drive tracks are found around Mount Hotham, a picturesque four-hour drive from Melbourne. Many of these tracks follow routes carved in by early cattlemen and gold prospectors who opened up what was then uncharted territory. The views on all the seasonal road-opening tracks will literally take your breath away.

The tracks we are doing are rated up to "difficult" in dry conditions as per Mt Hotham's definition: "Difficult: Significant Low Range 4WD with standard 4WD ground clearance. Should have 4WD driver training."

Expected terrain & track conditions

Tracks with some steep and/or rocky/slippery/sandy sections. May have shallow water crossings.

Vehicle suitability

Suitable for medium clearance vehicles with dual range and all terrain or road tyres.

Driver training experience

Recommended that drivers have experience or 4WD training. Recommended to be done in groups of vehicles.

Cost

$100 per vehicle for the full weekend. Accommodation charge not included in this price.

Accommodation costs are the lodge's standard summer rates: adults $31/night, kids (17-6) $16/night and under 6 free.

Itinerary

This is the proposed Itinerary for our Arrabri Ski Club Advanced Level 4WD weekend. Remember the club will be providing BBQ lunches both days which are included in the $100 per vehicle charge.

We are using this weekend and other 4WD trips to help promote some of our summer activities up here in the Great Alpine National Park and surrounding state forests.

We are looking at having 15 vehicles for the trip, so please book early to avoid disappointment. These trips are very popular due to the low price providing a very cheap, action-packed family weekend away.
