I am leading this walk in the Vic Alps. We are camping 3 nights at Macalister’s Springs (height about 1600 m) so you need good warm sleeping gear for the cool nights. Monday night at Walhalla (or Rawson) and Tuesday night on Phillip Island.. Probably stay in motels for those nights. Come along and enjoy the Crosscut saw one of the best bushwalks in Australia. Yep, it is that good. But probably have a limit of about 6 people from Queensland. There will also be a group of people from our sister club in Victoria.
