The view across Tawonga and Mt Beauty from the top of Mt Emu is pretty stunning.

Mt Emu is adjacent to Mt Bogong but much lower so is accessible during the winter months. Despite this walk being all on 4WD track it is perfect for this time of the year.

I have checked out Redbank Track which takes you to the summit of Mt Emu from the opposite direction of our usual ascent. So I would like to try to do this as a cross-over if someone would like to lead from Mountain Creek Road.

It will be very straight forward and all on well defined 4WD tracks.

One group will walk up Mt Creek Road from the cars before turning at the intersection with Eskdale Spurr for the walk to the summit, while the other group will follow Redbank Track to the summit. Lunch for both groups will be on the hang glider launch pad, with the most amazing views across Tawonga and Mt Beauty, before each group continues to walk to the other end of Eskdale Spurr from which they started. If no co-leader can be found we will revert to plan B which will be a loop walk from Mt Creek Road along Eskdale Spurr to the summit for lunch. The return walk will follow the access road for the transmission lines. Around 16kms all up.
