View Full Version : Rock crawling in VIC??
07-08-2012, 11:16 PM
I bought my JK as a great all rounder and am keen to try out different terrain. In Victoria all I've ever seen in challenging tracks is mud and more mud :(
Thats great but eventually you want more from 4wding that bogholes and muddy hills.
Other than Wombat, Warby, Toolangi & Alpine region Im not aware of much else?
So, are there any good places in Victoria that have more in the way of rocks, steps, creek beds or sand?

thing is most of these places make up a very small area of state parks. i know of a couple but the drive to them is just a normal road. climb or drive them once or twice and its like ya been their, what now?

Cobaw will keep you happy for a few days some good crawls and there is one brute of a hill that would test most.

Deep Creek has been dozed.
Cobaw is the only spot i can think of with lots of rocks. Heaps of tracks there.
Everything else is very easy in a moderate vehicle.

Nerrim south has heaps of unmarked tracks where you can find rock ledges, massive off camber tracks. There's heaps out that way you just need to find them. A lot of the good track you'll drive straight past so need to keep an eye out and get off the main roads. Noojee has some awesome climbs, wesburn, the high country has some rocky tracks but its boring trying to find them. If you want rocks go to labatuche and do sunset. Its a closed track at the bottom but not the top. We went up with a cj7 on gq chassis with 40" swampers and ls1, gq with 42" swampers didn't make it, need a winch. Once im finished my tj ill be hitting it for sure.

Mt Buangor just outside Ararat lots of steep granite boulders shelves etc tough terrain especially in the wet take a dirt bike to scout the tracks days of fun to be had the power line track is hard core 5-6 foot ledges mud trees etc be a day alone to drive that 4-5 km with a couple vehicles. I am locked on 35s and had to winch to save myself a few times couldn't drive it alone need a backup vehicle. Awesome spot to camp as well.https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-37.3088897,143.211479,13z
