A cracking daytrip with five-star Vic High Country vistas. The 151km drive from the village of Corryong through to Tom Groggin can be done in a day, but why cut yourself short?

There’s a beaut bush camping site available at Dogman Hut at the base of Mount Pinnibar on the Victorian side of the Murray, and more camping available at Tom Groggin on the NSW side.

Facilities are limited but the driving is first class and the views from your windscreen and campsites make roughing it completely worthwhile.

Line up a weekend of clear weather and get out and experience this little slice of High Country heaven!

STUFF TO DO

4WDING: Varied terrain suited to high clearance vehicles. The descent down Mt Pinnibar to Tom Groggin is very steep and can be treacherous after rain.

The Murray River crossing is deeper on the NSW side and should be walked every time. Strong currents make this crossing very difficult following heavy rain.

MT PINNIBAR: Summiting Mt Pinnibar is the highlight of this drive. 360°

views are on offer from the top, with Mt Kosciusko directly in front.
