DRIVING VICTORIAN HIGH COUNTRY

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

Ahh, the Victorian High Country! The pinnacle for 4wder’s south of Queensland. Combining skill, beauty and toughness this incredible part of our beautiful country is situated in South–Eastern Victoria.
This stretch of 4WDing tracks features copious pubs, campsites (most of which are free) and breathtaking mountain scenery. With the abundance of camping sites, there is never an issue finding a spot to bunker down before a nice morning hike up the Pinnacles lookout. This hike includes amazing views of the Victorian countryside and rare 360-degree lookout spot, make sure when hiking to lookout for the fire spotters hut before the vertigo inducing scale to the fire towers.

To challenge the Perenties, take them down the Bill Goat Bluff track. An iconic Victorian high-country track featuring a steep crawl over loose rocks and fun rock steps, note the track is narrow at times, so travel with caution. Further on, you will encounter the next track, which features deep river crossings, giving you a chance to clean off that Perentie. These mostly straightforward crossings can get dicey after rain so proceed with caution. Finally, there is a rewarding and picturesque campsite at the other end allowing for some recouping after a big day on the trails.

Other mentionable tracks, such as the Blue Rag Trig Point, allow for more 360-degree views and steep hill climbs. But with the sheer size of the area around the Victorian High Country, we simply recommend getting engrossed and exploring with your Perentie. Remember to give yourself longer than expected because once you start, it’s hard to stop.
