Hey all, I've put together an itinerary of our most recent trip to the Vic High Country. We camped on the Wellington River just our of Licola, drove up and over Mt Wellington to Millers Hut and did some hikes from there. The most spectacular one being the 12km loop out to Lake Tali Karng. I could not recommend this area enough!

great trip report aidan, fantastic part of the world. tried getting up there in june '19 but was turned back by thick snow leading up to the summit of mt wellington (later learnt that someone had been rescued by the SES 2 days prior to our being there, so prob good move to turn tail). finally got up there cup weekend '19, went from 30'c on the friday night down on the wellington rv out of licola on the way in to getting snow up at millers hut on the monday. we did the hike to tali karng, was great & a fair workout dropping down to the lake & then back out, bloody steep. would have loved to have checked out the sentinels, when we were there the track in was closed from the hut, how long did the hike take u roughly ? def wanna get back there one day & check it out

Oh wow, so the signs on the drive in about weather conditions are no joke! It would have been pretty magic seeing Millers with some snow on it. It was about 2 hours of actually walking but we spent half a day because we get distracted taking pics along the way and stopped for lunch at the end etc
