Avon Macalister Rivers Run - Anzac Weekend 2010

 - 6 vehicles joined Laurie & Heidi to travel across the Avon, Macalister & Aberfeldy Rivers.

On a wet Saturday morning , our trip started from Huggetts Lane on the Avon River. Our journey took us up the Avon then along the Ben Cruachan Creek before taking in the views from McMillans Lookout which overlooks the scenic Licola.

After more rain on Saturday night, we took to the slippery tracks on sunday morn by descending the rocky Burgoyne Track with views of the raging Macalister river. The wet slippery Toomstar track was in our midst  on a lovely sunny afternoon.  Due to the slippery rutted Toomstar track, we spent 4 hours recovering all of our vehicles to the top of the slippery hill. A late night to camp (7pm) ensued.

With more lovely sun on Monday morning to fry the tracks, we revisited the well known O'Tooles flat before 4WDing the challenging Flats track. Soon we were crossing the Aberfeldy River & heading for Walhalla & home.
