Convoy crossing the Haunted Stream

With wet weather expected, the Haunted Stream was a place to visit. Leaving the bitumen just south of Swifts Creek in East Gippsland, we headed down to the stream to enjoy the 54 river crossings before arriving at Dawson City.

After enjoying about 10 river crossings, our journey was halted by a temporary track closure near Dogtown due to recent flood damage.

Laurie quickly revised our travel plans by taking us up the interesting Stirling track. With lunch finishing with drops of rain, it was time to head off for Camms Top Place. This required some concentration as we headed down the rocky Danes Track before crossing the rising Wentworth River.


Camp was set up at Camms Top Place on our own in the rain. Laurie & Heidi's big tarp came to the rescue one more time as everybody squeezed under it for a relaxed happy hour.

When the rain finally stopped, the camp fire was started so dinner could be cooked over the warm fire.

Sunday morning took us across Danes Creek before taking on the steep climb of Murdering Spur. After a morning tea stop on the Dargo river and a look at Harrisons Cutting, our trip wound up on the Dargo River at Ollys Jump Up.
