Caledonia River Track

loading...
From Dingo Hill Track the Caledonia River Track starts as an overgrown track following the river before a steep climb up to Howitt Rd and the Howitt High Plains. Easy enough in the dry would be a bit more difficult in the wet. The really hard sections all have an easy option. Great views climbing from 630m to 1600m ASL. Track is usually closed from Queens Birthday until Cup Weekend in November.

Did this track Queens Birthday weekend 2013. Plenty of mud from the bottom of Dingo through to the start of the climb up to Howitt after a lot of rain. Best campsites along the bottom end of the track before the Caledonia branches.

Fully driveable on 10 May 2014. Deep tread tyres advised when damp, for the bog holes.
