Step out on the epic Australian Alps Walking Track as it cuts through this section of the national park before crossing the Mitta Mitta River and making its way east towards Mount Bogong. Swap challenging hikes for something a little shorter and climb to the granite-strewn summit of Mount Wills, where you can take in unforgettable views over the Mitta Mitta Valley. Or enjoy 360-degree vistas of the Australian Alps from the Mt Benambra Fire Tower or the summit of Mt Pinnibar.
The epic Davies Plain Drive ventures through some of Victoria’s most isolated and scenic landscapes. Accessible via Omeo or Corryong, the multi-day four-wheel drive journey takes in the commanding peaks of Mount Anderson and Mount Pinnibar, the historic Davies Plain Hut and Tom Groggin Station. Take in the beauty of the Snowy Mountains and the landscape that inspired Banjo Paterson’s iconic poem, The Man From Snowy River.
In addition to legendary cattlemen huts, this region is rich with gold mining history. The remote and mountainous town of Omeo struck gold in the mid-1800s. And although less successful than the discoveries through Victoria’s central goldfields, Omeo survived through the years and serves as a reminder of Gippsland’s main goldrushes. Other gold mining towns, such as Boggy Creek, Bingo and Jericho faltered and become ghost towns. Their footprints, along with relics, can be found littered throughout the region.

Poor condition of Armstrong Track, Deddick ValleyArmstrong Track is in very poor condition with several very steep, loose and severely rutted sections. The track condition deteriorates progressively the further south you travel, with the worst section of the track being the final descent towards the Deddick River near Bull Flat. The track is rated as double black diamond (very difficult in dry conditions) and should only be attempted by groups of experienced drivers in well-equipped vehicles with recovery equipment and should not be attempted in wet conditions. The track should only be driven in a southerly direction from Mt Taylor to Bull Flat and drivers should not proceed past any point where they would not be able to drive in the opposite direction.
