Basically the drive to Moe, Moccasins On Everybody ( Last chance for FUEL) then onto Erica then onto Rawson is pretty straight forward., Although you don’t go into Rawson but continue up to the Thompson Dam,

Drive over the dam wall and continue onto a T intersection

Walhalla Road
37 degrees,49'21.03"S - 146 degrees,24'25.39"E turn Left

Stay on the main road

TRIG Track on Right , do not turn into – PSA

CHERRY TREE TRACK on Left, do not turn into – PSA

CASCADE SPUR do not turn into – PSA

JUNCTION – keep to the right

PIPELINE TRACK on left. Do not turn into- PSA

DREAM CREEK TRACK on right, do not turn into – PSA

MERRINGTON TRACK

37 degrees,46'33.17" S - 146 degrees, 23'11.68" E

– TURN RIGHT

PLEASANT TRACK on right , do not turn into- PSA

SULLIVAN TRACK off to left, do not turn into- PSA ( there is also a track leading down to the right which leads you down to MERRINGTONS camp area- DO NOT GO DOWN THIS ONE )

You will cross over a stream / river and you will come to a JUNCTION,

37 degrees, 45'29.43" S - 146 degrees 24'13.62" E

to the right there is WILLIAMSON”S SPUR TRACK which is the most direct but is steep down Flats Track

Continue on Merringtons track and shortly you will come to another creek crossing,

37 degrees 45'28.68" S - 146 degrees 24'08.94" E

crossing the creek, off to your right is JUNCTION TRACK turn onto this

Yeah, sounds good. I will check and see if I can get the time off work. Our whole family loved it last time, so hopefully we can make it again.

Hi BEK and Grumpy,

Would have loved to have come, but the dates are too hard. Slap bang in the middle of Term 4!

Is that a Victorian long weekend?

Nah it's two weeks after Cup w/e here. Enough time for us all to recover from the gg's,
and hopefully not too many others at the camp spot-(probably more for their sake than ours!)

Hi Grumpy, put me down as a maybe.

I had to leave last November on the Friday for weekend work. There will also be a weekend in November this year that I will need to work. At this stage I do not know which weekend in November I will have to work. If the work weekend does not clash with the O'Tooles weekend I will be at O'Tooles.
Will let you know as soon as I know.
