O’Briens Crossing – Lerderderg River – Mackenzies Flat
20km, 2 or 3 days
This is a challenging walk in the Lerderderg Gorge and is for experienced bushwalkers only. It is best to do the walk when the river is fairly low, as many crossings are necessary and at times the riverbed itself is the track. Here you can experience remote, unspoilt bushland.
