[Pres: Please note that this trip will require a signed off leader to run.]

Baw Baw National Park is a long plateau at the southern end of the great dividing range best known for its Alpine resort. This walk avoids the developed areas and instead comes up through the tall trees of the surrounding state forests to the other side of the plateau.

Forestry tracks and walking trails can be followed for the majority of the distance, but the plan is to walk off track into a remote area to camp for the night. The distances of 10km a day with 400-500m of elevation change are relatively short allowing for slow going through the undergrowth, and time to take in the varied environments. Suitable for enthusiastic people who have done some bushwalking before but marked advanced due to the off track sections.

Being close to Melbourne it wont be costly (approx $20-30 transport) and we'll be back home for dinner on the Sunday night.
