Walking Since 1939

Warby Ranges Base Camp

Expired

Distance: 34km

Walk Description

Extending north from Glenrowan in Victoria’s north-east is a steep scarped range known locally as the Warbys.  It is a magnificent weekend hideaway: open forest country dotted with clumps of ‘old man’ grass trees, a carpet of wild flowers, heaps of delightful gullies to explore, and from its ramparts, spectacular views of the endless plains to the north and Victoria’s rugged snow capped peaks to the south.

The Walks:  Two one-day walks are proposed from a base camp in the northern end of the Warby Ranges. Neither of the proposed walks include any serious climbs or descents, and neither include walking on tracks to any significant degree.

Water.  The Warby Range is in a relatively dry area north of the Great Divide and its creeks usually flow only for a few months each year after the winter and spring rains.

Transport:  Car pooling to be arranged by leader.

Booking is  required for this walk.  The Leader will confirm your acceptance onto the walk via an email.  A few days before the walk, the leader will organise car-pooling and provide details of where and when to meet.
It is expected that anyone undertaking an overnight walk has at least the experience and equipment necessary to comfortably complete a “medium” graded day walk.   If you are new to overnight camping, please refer to our Gear Checklist page or discuss with the leader.   Some equipment (eg tents, stoves) can be borrowed or shared provided you advise the leader of this when booking.  For harder-graded walks, the leader has the right not to accept bookings from anyone they consider is not sufficiently fit or experienced to undertake it, so please provide as much relevant information as you can when booking.
