Bendoc, Bonang, Goongerah, Tubbut


SnowyHikeratwaterFour small hamlets on the Snowy River Country Trail, Bendoc, Bonang, Goongerah and Tubbut sit in one of the most beautiful corners of Victoria.

Take a couple of days and drive the round trip from Orbost or Buchan through the little towns of Goongerah, Bonang, Tubbut and Gelantipy, taking in the spectacular sites of the Snowy River National Park and historic McKillops Bridge. The 255-metre long heritage-listed bridge on the Bonang to Gelantipy Road was built in the 1930s to allow vehicles – and more importantly livestock – to cross the Snowy River on their passage between Victoria and NSW. Named after pioneering squatter George McKillop, who crossed the river here in 1835, the bridge spans a spectacular, deep gorge of the upper Snowy River, near its junction with Deddick River.

The area features some of the most stunning alpine forest and river gorge scenery in the state. Visit nearby Errinundra National Park noted for its old growth forest. Here there are several short walks that showcase the beauty of the park.

McKillpopsBridge

 Said to be the longest arc-welded steel truss road bridge in the world, the McKillops Bridge is regarded as one of the standing wonders of Australian road-bridge engineering. The bridge also is one of the few places in the park with access to the Snowy River by conventional vehicle making it a popular launching place for experienced canoeists who wish to explore downstream.
