    The first bog hole is about 150 metres from the car park, if you get a vehicle through that you have done well and the rest should be a breeze...if you are walking then wear rugby boots to get some traction and swap to hunting boots when you get to the logging road...no council work has been done on the track for years and I spoke to the guy from the council and he says no work planned anytime soon...plenty of deer around up there, just not in fat condition as yet.

    Quick update Thompsonís track is in the worst condition Iíve seen in a few years
    Made for a fun scramble up in the dark this morning. Bit of fresh sign around hundred acres nothing amazing
    Gets a lot better further south. Looks like a few dirt bikes and 4x4s go up there, possibly spotlighting.


    Ps no vizlaís seen unfortunately and heaps of cloud

    Went down there for work years ago and was told not to bother with that area as it was "Shot out". Turns out what they meant was anything near the track had been night shot the shit out of, yet the bush beyond the tracks was holding a healthy population. Not such a great hut, but plenty of Koura and deer nearby.

    The hut was replaced many moons ago so depends if you mean the "old" hut or the "new" one.
