After our aborted trip to Tingaringy last November in the rain, our convoy headed east in the warm sunshine for the 350km trip to Buchan. After a cool night and being entertained by the local kangaroos, we headed north to the famous McKillops Bridge which gave us access to the eastern side of the Snowy River..
Our plan was to climb the Armstrong Track which gives great views over the Snowy River. Due to fire damage, our convoy was rerouted via the Laurie Track. The Laurie Track gave great adventure to all our 4WDers with some great climbing and descending, before reaching the Mt Tingaringy summit.
After a cool night camping up on Mt Tingaringy at 1,500M, we headed back down to the Snowy River for a refreshing cool swim in the mid 30 degree heat.
The 2nd part of our adventure took us south along the Deddick Trail, which is on the eastern side of the Snowy River. This trail has great views and adventurous 4WDing.
With smoke in the distance from the Deddick Trail, radio calls revealed a large out of control bushfire some 70kms SE of us. After a very warm night (with no camp fire), we finally made it to Jacksons Crossing where we crossed the Snowy River and completed our trip back at Buchan.
