Snakes Reserve campground, Jamieson - base camp
Date and time: 13/14 November 2021 - 9:00 am
Description: Base camp at the Parks Victoria, Snakes Reserve campground on the Goulburn River, approximately 30 km south of Jamieson on the Mansfield - Woods Point Road from mid afternoon Friday to Sunday afternoon. This trip provides the opportunity for members wishing to take their families, with good access for caravans and camper trailers, as the Snakes Reserve campground is a large, open grassed area, set up with good drop toilets and fireplaces. The last 15 km of the Mansfield- Woods Point Road before the campground is unsealed. Whilst the campground is on the Goulburn River, drinking water is to be carried into the campground. The campground is the pick of all of the campgrounds along the Goulburn River. Whilst there is no mobile reception at this campground, there is reception approximately 5km back towards Jamieson and once up on the higher ground.
There will be two trips over the weekend. One trip will be over Mount Terrible at 1316m, with great views over the high country. This trip will be in the reverse direction to that undertaken on previous trips out of the Skipworth campground, commencing with a climb up Moonlight Spur Track and descending down Poletti Track back to the Mansfield - Woods Point Road. The second trip will be over Mount Matlock at 1377m travelling through Woods Point, then travelling over Corn Hill at 1325m, back onto the Mansfield- Woods Point Road. This trip commences with a climb up the historic German Spur Track, which was the original route to Woods Point in the horse and cart days with many sign- posted historic sites.
