Wonnangatta ANZAC Day Long Long Weekend 2024 - EOI

This is the LROC (Landrover Owners Club) annual multi convoy trip into Wonnangatta Station in the Victorian High Country.  The RRCV have been invited to join this annual event this year. Please register if you are interested and we will either arrange an RRCV convoy or arrange for you to join one of the LROC convoys.

Date and time:  9:00am, Thursday 25th April to 4:00pm Sunday 28th April

Trip Standard:  Medium or Hard, depending on your chosen start point.  Some steep, low-range hill climbs and some rocky tracks!

Description:  Please contact your trip leader if you are unsure of any of the following requirements for this trip.

This weekend involves multiple convoys converging on the Wonangatta Station from Mansfield, Dargo, Licola and Myrtleford.  The routes range from easy/medium from Myrtleford, to medium and hard from Licola to hard from Dargo.  You will get a list of routes to choose from once numbers are understood.

Whilst in the Valley, we will be running a series of day trips exploring the surrounds of the Wonnangatta Valley.

We will also run a long table dinner on Friday evening.

This year, ANZAC day falls on a Thursday.  Therefore there will need to be a different approach to this year’s dawn service.  One option is to run some convoys into Wonnangatta on the Wednesday to conduct a service at the traditional time, another is to conduct a service on the Thursday evening. This will all depend on how many people will be in the valley on Wednesday night.

There is also the possibility of multi day exit trips, such as an exploration of the area around Dargo, and potentially around the Bluff.  This will be subject to the availability of Convoy Leaders.

At this stage, it is requested that you register you interest in the trip and we will work out the convoys and finalise the program as we get closer to the trip.

A survey will sent out to all people that register seeking preference for difficulty level, route in and out, day trips and availability for the Dawn Service.
