    Lake Eildon

    Hi guys,
    Been thinking about heading up Lake Eildon way for 4wding, does anyone know of any good tracks up that way??

    Cheers

    Hey Belz, out of Jamison there is a heap of good stuff, lots of hills, plenty to see. Head NW on teh map and you will find lots. Others will be far more specific i am sure.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Nissan Kid works up at Eildon. Send him a PM.

    By the way, I was born at Alexandra and lived in Thornton for 17 years before I joined the Navy. Nice place to visit, but too cold for me now. lol

    Hi guys,

    I've been camping and 4wding up that way before. We usually camp anywhere along Big River road, which is just south of Jameison. From Melbourne go thru Warburton, McMahons Creek and Reefton on the Warburton Woods Point road, u come to a T intersection turn right, but its still Warburton woods point road (weird) then turn left at the Eildon Warburton road (dirt road) then veer right on the Big River road. This road goes for ages and theres tons of tracks and camping spots all along the river - fantastic spot!

    I believe Nissan Kid works up there, so PM him and he may be able to help.

    Take care out there.

    Big River is a fun place. Plenty of camp sites around there too. Stockmans and Frenchmans campsites are the more well known for me as I've passed them a lot on the way to tracks etc but I've never actually stayed in them. We always went out into the bush where we could be loud and not worry about families.

    Eildon itself doesn't really have much in the way of 4WD'ing. There's a few here and there but it's when you go out of Eildon that the fun starts. I'd stay in Eildon in comfort and then venture from there.

    Pretty much the only track names I remember at Big River are the shortcut tracks. Haven't been there for quite a while and I'm not really great at remembering names of places but shortcut definitely rings a bell. Must have been good! lol

    I remember back many years ago heading out of there in my brothers landcrab and the police would of had at least 15-20 4wd's all lined up putting tickets on everyone on a sunday afternoon long weekend. I would be very careful about that road on a Sunday arvo if your Patrol is illegal.
