Dargo High Plains Rally 2015
« on: July 23, 2015, 09:46:35 PM »
11-13 September 2015

Held at Talbotville, around 30km from Dargo - https://goo.gl/maps/X3Gq7 - Warning, this route is not ST friendly

Phil and I are planning to leave Friday, overnight somewhere civilised on the way, plenty of Saturday night lubrication, home Sunday.

Possible routes to and / or from:

https://goo.gl/maps/prlBc - this one depends on the Dargo High Plains Road being open at the Hotham end.

Views on the ride in are spectacular:


The site is busy and the company is great:

Sounds interesting but bad timing for me. Perhaps another day.

I'll provide a bit more notice for 2016.

It is a top spot, albeit in a valley (the track falls around 800m down to the Crooked River, over the last 5km).

I will just be back from 6 weeks away, and the Wall to Wall ride is on that weekend. I should start noting all the rallies that are on as well, as haven't been to one for years. Then in between everything else that is on, I may be able to make a few.

Just a couple of more pics from the 2014 Dargo High Plains Rally to whet the appetite:

There's adequate room for camping.


There's a river to cross, if you come that way.


Like this guy did.


There's some good company.


Surely some OzSTOCers (other than me) are interested.
