Event Description

Join us as we ride to Mt Baw Baw! This year is a little different!

For the adventurous, Noel and Jo are considering camping on Loch Valley Rd, about 8km from Noojee on Saturday night. Imagine cooking over the open fire, sipping on a beer or local glass of red, at one with nature..... Having said that there are toilets at the campsite! It is a large purpose built area.

For those who prefer creature comforts, pub accommodation is available at Neerim South Hotel, 16 minutes from Noojee, or slightly further out at Yarra Junction or Warragul. Neerim South Hotel quoted $80 single/ $110 double.


Breakfast will be from 9am at Little Red Duck Cafe (check them out on facebook!) Noojee, departing at 10.30am for a cruise up the mountain.

Entry to the National Park is free during green season. Village Central Restaurant on the mountain is open for lunch. RSVP IS REQUIRED TO BOOK A TABLE, PLEASE!

After enjoying lunch and the magnificent views, we will head home about 2pm.


FUEL - fuel availability is limited after Neerim Junction, however following last year’s inaugural ride, we found filling up at Neerim Junction beforehand gave all riders plenty of fuel for the trip up, and back down Mt Baw Baw. You will need a full tank when you arrive at Noojee, or bring a jerry can!


This ride is suitable for experienced riders only. The roads are winding, narrow and steep at times with frequent 4WD traffic, however the general condition of the road is good. Please take a look at the map before deciding to attend.

Hope to see you there! This event will only be cancelled if the weather gods decide to have a tantrum!

Noelene, most accommodation in Noojee is Air BnB style, or cabins sleeping 2-6 people. Pub accommodation is available at Yarra Junction (30 mins from Noojee) or Neerim South (15 mins from Noojee) around $80 single.

Sounds like fun. If not camping where else will I stay? The ground is a bit hard for me these days. Cheers

Would probably advise packing up before the ride up the mountain, David.

Camping too. Can we leave our tents at the bottom of the mountain?

Sounds like a great run!  Would definitely be up for camping night before
