We will be leaving Albury early on Saturday morning and driving to Mt Buller. After leaving cars near Tip Corner we will follow the unsealed Cornhill Road, which leads to Cornhill Track. Following Corn Hill Track we will descend to Howqua Gap Hut, before heading up to the summit of Mt Stirling (1,747m) on Howqua Gap Trail. From the open grassy summit we’ll get views of the Crosscut Saw, Mount Buller and Mount Buffalo. The walk from Buller to Stirling is 8km one way/16km return.
After setting up tents at Bluff Spur Hut (just off the summit of Stirling), we will have lunch, then there will be an option to walk to Craig’s Hut in the afternoon (7km return).
After packing up on Sunday morning we will make the return trip to Mt Buller and the cars.
All up (from Buller to Stirling and Craigs Hut, on Saturday and returning to cars on Sunday) about 23km over the two days, all on well marked tracks, with a few steep short climbs/descents.
