McMillan's Track - Connecting Gippsland's High Country
Go to Walks Calendar For Details of Upcoming Walk November 18 to December 1, 2017
In 1864 Angus McMillan was commissioned by the state government to establish a track to link the various gold fields in Gippsland. The track stretches some 220km from Omeo westward to Woods Point through the Gippsland high country.
A few years after the Ben Cruachan Walking Club was formed in 1965, members of the Club investigated, documented and marked what they thought was an accurate re-creation of 'McMillan's Track' and began maintaining it.
During the 1980s a concerted effort was made, with help from the State Government, to get the track to a condition where it was readily walkable and fully marked. The track was officially reopened in 1988.
