VIC High Country Sat 2nd & Sunday 3rd January 2021

Started out just south of Buffalo Lake and the Yarrabula Creek Track, before proceeding onto the Buffalo Range track to Mt Selwyn and then on to Mt Sarah, down the Mt Sarah Spur Track across to to Brewery Creek Rd and on to Talbotville. It started raining when I was at Mt Sarah so the trip down the Mt Sarah Spur Track and back up the other side from the crossing of the Wongungarra River was interesting.

Rained pretty much all night at Talbotville so took the low road (Crooked River Rd) out, plenty of deep water crossings.

From Dargo took the Upper Dargo Rd to Birregun Crossing, then on to Mt Birregun, past the Dogs Grave and down the Dinner Plain Track. Can definitely confirm the old connecting track from dinner plain down to Mayford is most definitely shut (thanks for those that responded to another post of mine confirming this) it's been shut for years by the look of it, i wish Hema updated their maps more often.

All in All a great weekend out!

Lots of evidence of the damage from the bushfires but some evidence of recovery too. Some area's like Mt Selwyn are going to take a long time before they look anything like what they did.

Some of the crossings on the crooked river track are quiet deep , looks like you had a great trip .

Sounds like it was a great trip. Hopefully the bush in the area has time to recover before it burns again.
