Aberfeldy Track - Walhalla

Date and time:  9:00am, Saturday 18th May to 4:00pm Sunday 19th May

Trip Standard: Easy - medium with some rocky tracks and river crossings.

Description: 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.

The route we will take follows the original Aberfeldy track from the early 1800s, which was used as a transportation route for horse and carts during the gold rush.  Interpretation signs are en-route throughout the drive marking historic sites and remnants along the way.  

Stretching about 180km, the Aberfeldy Track begins at the town of Erica and explores the area around and north of Aberfeldy (Day 1) and then follows the Donnellys Creek Loop (Day 2).  We will camp in the Donnellys Creek area on Saturday night.  Both areas are Easy – Medium 4WD tracks linked by an access road (Easy).  The trip will end at Walhalla on Sunday afternoon.  If time and weather permits we may also include side trips to the Hanging Rock Walking Track, Aberfeldy Crossing or White Star Township.
