Rock-Crawling Tracks Vic


Active Member

Just throwing this out there to see what comes back.....does anyone know of any really rocky tracks in Victoria?

I usually comes across tracks in the hills that have some rock in them but was wondering if there were any that people know off that you would say were very rocky....sufficient for rock crawling?

I came across one that wasnt on a map a couple years ago at the back of Mt Cole....was awesome...long, tight, boulders everywhere.......but never recorded it and neither did anyone else that was there.

Anyone know of any others?

Thanks in advance.

jackson brk - buxton. (sections of rock leagdes)
high country - butcher country (long trk alot the way numerouse rock ledges with a view!!)
pitts trk - marysville (was firly steep and rocky the hardest rock trk i have done, sadly i dunno when and if it will reopen after the fires)

if your doing ellis i would recommend a 35" agressive tyre, lockers and winch if your attempting it in the wet

Did Ellis track yesterday as well, with an 80 series and a GU, both with 33's. It was a bit tricky in a couple of spots, but got through with only a bent side step.

did ellis track yesterday in mud mav, 2'' lift and 33'' baja claws and no diff locks. very challenging and rocky, had lots of fun and escaped with minor damage. car could use bigger tyres to give diff clearance and maybe a bit more lift to protect under body and sils. it was dry so grip was not the major issue. this track would be almost impossible in the wet unless you are really well set up, you will definetly need a winch in wet conditions. if you try this track be prepared to get some panel damage,but do not forget to have fun

What about Robertson Creek Tk in the Bunyip Forest? It's just off Forest Rd near the first motorbike unloading area. There's a very bouldery section up there just past Rocky tk.
