Your father, Scotty?
This has been a great read. Thanks guys.
I should have been finishing my DA and Basixs but this has been way more enjoyable.
On the way to Dalgety I went and visited The Southern Cloud lookout near Tooma
The clouds were lower than the mountain on the day, erie to look at what they flew into
Had a great day with a bit of a challenge finding it today, well worth the effort for the feeling of satisfaction, took a couple of goes to get in, if i was on the 450 and up for a hill climb think we could have got closer but walked in about 1.5km of easy jeep track and 50m of steep decent
Has the Beaufort wreck from 1945 off Fluerty/Dederang Track near Gundowring been mentioned? Four fatalities on a flight to East Sale. Fuselage, wing and lots of other bits spread around. Steep scramble up the gully for a few hundred metres off a little parking area at the hairpin. Poorly marked track has only a few bits of pink tape to the crash site.
The Google Maps GPS reference is -36.52881, 147.132051.
Did you lodge an incident report for that cut on your arm?
You need to fill in form 20S1370/1 (press hard, 3 copies) and lodge with your nearest Police Station.
Both arms, fucking lantana
Shit plant, two forms then?
No.. one form will do... just cross out "penis" in column 2 and write 2 forearms.
Is the one in the Watagans listed here somewhere ?, had a flick through but didnt notice it
Gunners turret from the Eskdale Spur Beaufort
I took nearly 50 pics of the wreckage today, involving about 70 parts strewn over a few hundred metres of the gully. No engines or props.
I will get to that one, maybe even later this year, was it hard to get to from the spur, I have a couple of family membes that did it a few years ago
By far the easiest way to it is not from the top of the spur but from Eskdale - easily combined with a trip along the Omeo Highway.
Turn off at Eskdale onto Little Snowy Creek Road, right at Smythes Road, right just before the gate at the end for Touch Wood and about 4.5 kilometres further, after a little bit of water running across the road with tree ferns at a left hander, at the next right hairpin you follow the gully and watch for faded red tape.
If you want to work off a bit of bakery crawling do it in your riding gear! My calves are still screaming.
The track starts at about the 860 metre level and the wreckage is hundreds of metres higher, so pretty close to the top of the ridge: Mount Tawonga is only 1260 metres.
Snow and gravity would have caused the remaining wreckage to end up in the gully but I couldn't see any definite point of impact on the ground or rocks on either side of the gully.
Tree damage from that long ago has probably been obliterated by time and bushfires.
Mica in the area can fool you into thinking there's lots of broken glass or shiny alloy glinting in the sun until you look more closely.
Last time I saw that wreckage was probably 15 years ago, it was hard to find that’s for sure. You had a big day yesterday Ron.
How far and hard was the actual trek ?
Looks like paul124ac and i will pay to pay a visit
Bloody hard! It would have killed a lesser man!
Having consulted Google Maps, I've changed my mind about the easiest option. If you have a hand-held GPS you'd be better off coming down to the wreck from Eskdale Spur Track. The highest part of the wreckage is just below some rock outcrops about two-thirds of the way along the gully from the start of the track to the ridge.
I'll try to post a screen shot.
yeah thas sounds like what my rely told me, they came down and followed a gully to it
please don't paste pics of Toowonga, reminds me too much of waking up in my sisters spare bedroom looking out the window over it thinking where will I ride today, and I can;t be there at the moment
The small area ringed is where the track up starts and the big area ringed is where the wreckage is strewn.
