Good Day folks, my girlfriend and I had planned for a roadtrip this year and we will be going up to Dinner Plain. As tourists and only specific dates (late July) to play with, should we go up the mountain via Harrietville or Omeo? We will be at Canberra 2 nights before the date we are actually travelling up. If we take Omeo route, we will drive from Canberra to Bairnsdale (6 hours) and stay there for a night before travelling up. If we take Harrietville route, we will drive from Canberra to Albury (4 hours) and stay there for a night before travelling up. Does the Harrietville route close often and is it as dangerous as some people say? We want to take the Harrietville route but are afraid that it will close on the day we are going up. Please do advice us and thanks in advance!
