Your correspondent in the field made the best of some fine weather on the weekend and guided three bushwalking friends out from the Mt. St. Gwinear car park in the Baw Baw N.P. ,out to the Rock Shelter where the XC ski snow pole line ( that joins the Baw Baw ski resort with Mt. St. Gwinear ) meets the AAWT( Aust. Alps walking trail). We then headed South East and reached our pleasant campsite near the Talbot Hut ruins in the Mt. Erica region of the Baw Baw plateau. After a cool and starry night we packed up the next day and walked along the AAWT to Mt. St. Phillack saddle and took lunch there. The views of the Baw Baw resort ridge were clear and unimpeded. The off track walking options in green season were / are restricted by head high heath and scrub which are usually totally buried by snow in early September.That is when I usually ski in the Back country of The Baw Baws. Visiting Mustering flat will have to wait until I can XC ski tour out there. It will be faster and easier then. More details and many photos are coming soon.
