Car camping opens up a whole new world of possibilities and luxuries.

The plan is to leave from Albury on Friday afternoon or whenever work commitments allow you to get away. Some people may choose to come up Saturday morning.

It will be a shared meal on Friday night around a camp fire (weather conditions permitting) or by torch light, for those who are interested in joining.

A walk to Mt Table top is planned for Saturday (see walk description following), with a well earned dinner at the Dinner Plain Hotel that night.  Its up to you on Sunday whether you do a short walk to Carmichael Falls (2km return) or just pack up and leave at your leisure.

At 1593 metres above sea level, Mt. Tabletop is a distinctive flat plateau linked to the Great Dividing Range by a low ridge. In this untracked area at the headwaters of the Dargo River there is a distinct feeling of isolation. From JB Plain, about 1.5 km west of Dinner Plain village, walk south (following an old fence line) across the plains for 0.5 km. From here the route is marked by orange triangular markers. After crossing snow grass plains and Snow Gum woodland the route drops down to Tabletop Creek and then follows a long ridge up to the plateau. The track is 14kms and marked to a rocky outcrop just below the summit. Return via the same route.
