Expedition over New Years Day plus:
It did seem like a somewhat forlorn hope that one could escape the noise and mad activity that is usually associated with New Years Eve and the days following.
However we found some unexpected serenity along the Davies Plain Track when we camped at Charlies Hut Camp Ground with only one other camp hidden from view in the trees about two hundred metres away from where we settled.
The Davies Plain Track is located sort of North East of Benambra and links Benambra with Tom Groggin on the Murray River in NSW. At the base of Mt Kosciuszko on the Alpine Way.
From Davies Plain we had a brief and somewhat noisy encounter with many tourists in traveling to Mt Murray via Omeo and Mt Hotham. The location being west of Mt Hotham. Again we were surprised to find we had the small but well sheltered camp area to ourselves. What bliss!!!!
