Group:

    Inner

    Dights Falls (South Side)

    Car parks north (Trennery Cres) and south (Yarra Blvd) of the river.

    Yarra Boulevard

    Rocky garden and retaining wall about 100m long next to the road near Swan St.

    Dights Falls (North Side)

    Car park available on Trennery Cres. Short walk down the ramp to a flat bank with some great rock areas and access to shallow water. The terrain varies based on water height, so each session has the potential to be different from the last.

    South-West

    Torquay Sands

    Just off the side of the bridge on Links Drive at Torquay Sands.

    Deakin - Waurn Ponds

    River Stone crawl along edge of car park - good for articulation, not rock climbing

    West

    Werribee River

    No Description provided

    You Yangs

    Big Rock picnic ground (first left after entering the park) is great. Wander up the trail and crawl over everything you see, or just hit the big rocks near the car park.

    Anakie George

    Take the Gorge Walk, and crawl all thru the creek bed - goes for ages. Could get a little moist in the winter. Awesome fun!

    Steiglitz

    Steiglitz, by the old bridge. Some nice slate in the riverbank, tricky crawling. Also a bunch of granite boulders to mess about on - great to check out if you're out that way.

    North

    South Morang

    No Description provided

    Yan Yean Reservior

    Yan Yean Resevior has a dirt road around it. There's a neat spot that's gated to vehicles but legal for walking and bikes. Has some great gullies and eroded trails.

    North-East

    Wimbi Reserve

    Take the trail toward Howard Rd, but drop off the path after 200m or so and head down the hill to the creek. In dry weather, the trail driving along the creek goes for a while and it's great for 1/10 crawlers of various capability.

    Temple Ridge Reserve

    Temple Ridge Reserve, Hurstbridge Near 662-646 Heidelberg-Kinglake Rd, Hurstbridge VIC 3099.

    Park at the bottom, entry via the gate, then either go left up the road and keep following until you get to the top of the hill, and look for animal trails leading off down the hill to your right; or, go straight ahead, directly up the hill, following the path that goes up into the trees and winds its way up the hill.

    In both cases you can follow your nose and choose your own adventure as there are several trails you can branch onto during your drive. Highly recommended for C1 and has some fun technical challenges for C2 rigs. Great place for multi axle rigs also. Particularly enjoyable night trail drive.

    East

    Mt Dandenong fire trail

    Glasgow Rd, Kilysth. Continue to the end of Glasgow Rd. You will see a small dirt road going up hill. Park at the gate and walk about 100m up the dirt track to the fire trail.

    Ringwood Bypass

    At Sherbrooke Ave, Ringwood, park at the end next to play ground then walk along the bike track under the bridge. Continue about 200m, cross the creek and walk 10m to get directly under the bypass.

    Ringwood Lake

    Once a Daisy's car park, head to the back right corner. Walk around the back of the fence to location.

    Ringwood lake has a few areas: next to the car park, along the creek, a good hill climb, and some trailing.

    Lilydale Dam wall

    Turn in off Hardy St, Lilydale. Continue past skate park and nitro rc track. Park up top of gravel car park. Walk through the gate and along dam wall about 30m.

    Mt Donna Buang

    Drive to Mt Donna Buang summit/lookout. Snow is all around with some rocks and a few trails as well. Best time is mid June and July for snow.

    Nettleton Park

    No Description provided

    Seville Water Park

    No Description provided

    South-East

    Pakenham Creek

    Park in the gravel car park, just off Rundell Way. Walk over near the walking bridge. It's all mostly under the bridge.

    Waterford Rise Gardens

    Very large man-made water feature in suburban Pakenham. Large enough to run at least three simultaneous tracks during crawling competitions.

    South

    Kingston Heath Botanic Gardens

    Man-made river and pond with a good selection of rocks to crawl and water to drive through.

    Arthurs Seat car park

    In the overflow car park at the bottom of the chairlift in Arthur’s Seat Road. Plenty of granite to keep you interested for a good while.
