This walk is postponed on account of high expected temperatures for the weekend. I’ll look at putting it on again after summer – so perhaps March/April.


This walk will start at the base of Eskdale Spur where we will leave the cars. Depending on booking numbers (and number of associated cars), we might ‘mask up’ and car-pool from Mountain creek to the base of Eskdale.

We will then make our way up to the summit of Mt Bogong (1986m).

We’ll then pass Cleve Cole Hut on our way down to Madisons. There is a small campsite here next to a little creek where we will set up camp for the night. We can then spend the rest of the day exploring the nearby Howman Falls or just relaxing. Return back the same way on Sunday.

This is a big walk, but we’ll have all day to do it. It is not a walk for newbies to overnight walks though sorry (check out Ian’s Ryders yards overnighter, or maybe Youngs hut instead).

There is a chance it could get pretty cold overnight, but I’m also hoping the timing will mean it isn’t too hot a slog going up Eskdale.

I will pull this walk if the weather prediction has any likelihood of thunderstorms or heavy rain.
