Car camp at Lightning Creek Camp site on Omeo Highway Saturday night or meet at site 9 am Sunday morning. ( I will be camping). This race was built in 1886 and was then the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. It carried water 22 Km from Snowy Creek to Yankee Hill near Mitta Mitta. At the present day campsite a giant flume 220 meters and 33 meters high was built to carry water over Lightning creek with the Omeo Highway passing beneath it. Planning to explore the race down from lightning Creek passing Reef Mine Tunnels and shafts. The bush along the race is scrubby at present due to fire regeneration.
