1. at the time of writing this area was open for walkers with no road closure and no bushfire threat (contacted Parks Vic Feb 7)

2. Obviously this could change rapidly and we will not be venturing anywhere we cant received the Vic Emergency fire app alerts and ABC radio coverage.

3. In the event of a total fire ban the event will not proceed

This event is a 3 day trip starting at Pretty Valley pondage at Falls Creek and beginning with a short backpack to a base camp for two nights at Tawonga Huts. We will head up the mountain on the Sat morning and walk about 5km to Tawonga Huts. Saturday we will climb to Mt Jaithmathang and may gradually wander out to Mt Fainter south and north before returning to Tawonga Huts. There is a low level alternative for this walk which we could use. There are other walk options to explore on the Sunday. Monday we will return to Pretty Valley and drive back home.


Suitable for most ages and fitness levels. Some bushwalking experience recommended. Track may have short steep hill sections, a rough surface and many steps.
