- Blair’s Hut Day Trip (13th December 2018) — Blair’s Hut is in the West Kiewa Valley and 40 km from Mt Beauty and is accessed via the West Kiewa Logging Track which is a very acceptable 4WD track. The plan is to invite members who don’t have a 4WD vehicle to be passengers in a vehicle driven by a competent driver. It’s a whole day trip so you will need to bring your own food, snacks, drink, thermos, hat, wet weather gear etc. The camp/picnic area (Diamantina Stockyards) that we park at is very nice. You may need to walk 1.5 km to the hut from there. If you have never had the opportunity to see some of our high country this is it. We need to know your interest so please place your name on the clipboard in the Shed ASAP.
