Border Track – Murray-Sunset Trip
Start: Renmark Visitors Information Centre Friday, 14 April 2017- 10:00
Finish: Hopetoun Monday 17 April 2017 – midday
This is a camping trip and unsuitable for camper trailers. The tracks are mostly sand which can have some deep soft sections. The trip is classified as being medium.
The Border Track runs due south along the Vic-SA border. The trip will start in Renmark and end in Hopetoun taking in sections of the Border Track as far south as Red Bluff; and sections of Murray-Sunset NP and Ngarkat CP as pace permits.
The Wombat State Forest is a beautifuli area, north west of Melbourne with a rich historic history of gold mining and timber milling. The trip follows a network of, at times, challenging 4WD tracks through the Wombat State Forest, west of Blackwood. The trip from Blackwood to Daylesford is classified as a difficult standard, mainly in the first half of this outbound leg where we climb to the ridge of the Great Dividing Range, being the highest point in the forest at some 878m, encountering some steep narrow tracks, bog holes, mud ruts which can be slippery in wet conditions. The rundown to Daylesford is easier along relatively flat forest tracks although there still may well be soft spots
Fri 21, Sat.22nd to Tue 25th. April ( ANZAC Day)

The Victotian 4WD show at Wandin is on Sunday 19th. February 2017 and again the RRCV will have a stand. The show promises to be bigger and better than ever this year.
Last year was very successful at promoting the club and its activities and gaining new members, so we are doing again in 2017.
The Aberfeldy Four Wheel Drive Track combines rich history, striking landscapes and 4WD touring. It takes in the region’s significant gold fields, passing through some of the area’s most stunning landscapes, from rugged bush to spectacular mountain views.
