This 2 day, 1 night walk starts at Bogong Village after a private transfer (see note below) from Mt Beauty and finishes at Mt Creek campground.

 

Day 1 (approx. 8km) Saturday 9th January: after meeting early and leaving a car at Mt Creek Campground, we will drive to Mt Beauty. From here we will be driven up to our starting point, Bogong Village. We will follow Black Possum Spur track and then the Mt Arthur track to its summit, before descending to our campsite at Bogong Creek Saddle. Both these tracks are steep. The track up to Mt Arthur is often hard to find as it is a faint footpad. The descent to Bogong Creek Saddle is quite scrubby and also a footpad.

 

Day 2 (approx. 15km) Sunday 10th January: Today we climb about 800m up Quartz Ridge to West Peak and then head up to Bogong Summit. The views as we climb Quartz Ridge will make the climb worthwhile. From there we will follow the Staircase down to Mt Creek Road and back to the cars left at Mt Creek Campground.

 

PRIVATE TRANSFER: the most time, cost effective way to do this walk is by getting a private, one-way transfer from Mt Beauty up to Bogong Village. If you want to do this walk then you have to be part of the transfer. The Mt Beauty Taxi that we will be using can take 5 people and their packs. The cost of the transfer will be split amongst the group.

 

BOOK BY DATE: Please note the early book by date DECEMBER 30TH as we have to pre book our transfer in advance.

 

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 4 people per taxi
