Upper Yarra Dam Victoria Australia March 2011

Beautiful weekend for an escape from home.

Don and myself (Craig) packed up the Ktm's and headed off from Home, Somerville Victoria Australia.

Headed to Longwarry for fuel, then headed via Jindivick, Neerim South..
Then headed along the Powelltown road coming out at Yarra Junction.

Turned right at the Warburton Hwy refuelling at Warburton. From Warby we took a quick trip up Mnt Donna Buang.. Back down and continued on to the Upper Yarra Dam Camping Ground.

Nice Place, $12.00 for the night which includes hot showers and a picture perfect camp ground.

We setup up camp and shot back down the road around 5k to the Reefton Pub for dinner, only to find the kitchen was closed and no meals... However we were able to have a top meal put on by the local CFA, $8.00 and a simple but top BBQ meal, a few drinks and a few hours later, we headed back to camp.

A relaxing evening under the stars with a good mate..

The next morning, up for a cuppa, see video.. Packed up camp and up and over the mountains to the recovering Marysville, a quick toilet break and then on to Healesville for lunch..

Then from Healesville we headed home via Gembrook.

A great weekend away and a great ride, around 450k.

A few notes:

Upper Yarra Dam Camping area, is around $6.00 per person, has Showers and Toilets which are very good... Camping area is brilliant, plenty of room and places for fires, also if the weather is bad, some secluded areas for protection.
The park gates are closed around 6pm EDST, however you can get a code when paying, that will allow you to get back into the park after the gates are closed.. We found this out and was very helpful. Considering we road to the pub and returned after 9.30pm.
