Falls Creek to Orbost and back

Postby rowdyflat » Fri Nov 23, 2012 5:08 pm

4 of us recently did 9 days camping and B+B s pubs etc riding from Falls Creek thru Anglers rest to Benambra then Limestone road to Native Dog Flat either side of NDF are big hills then drop down to Wombargo farm stay.
We each did turns driving the support vehicle .
Fill up w fuel at Gelantipy then over Black Mt and down thru McKillops bridge camped at Ambyne next day to Goongerah via Bonang stay at "eco cottage".
Bonang Hwy is mostly sealed very few cars stayed at Orbost where we saw our first real shops.
Next day on rail trail thru Nowa Nowa to Bruthen, the second part of the ride the surface and trestle bridges are excellent .
Then rode to Swifts creek via Doctors Flat rd . The pub at Swifts creek has amazing food.
Last day via Cassilis to Omeo up the big hill 12%.
Awesome ride but watch out for motorbikes someone killed at Hotham.
