Most rides start and finish on the Bennison High Plains (Higgins Huts.) Please check the return notes sent with the receipt of booking form. This location can be accessed by car.
Most guests choose to drive up to Higgins Huts on the night before the tour starts. Please note the gate opens at 5pm on the night before departure and no meals are provided on the night before departure on any ride.
If you would like to come up on the day of the ride please be there by 9am.
Snowy Range Tours can also run a courtesy pickup on the night before the tour starts. Depending on the tour and the number of guests, pickups may be from:
- The first bus stop on the main street in Heyfield at 6:30pm approx.
- Licola store at approx. 7pm
For guests who are coming from Melbourne by train and who are being picked up from Heyfield, you must leave the Traralgon railway station via the front door to catch the "V/Line bus to Heyfield". It is necessary to book if you need courtesy pickup as spaces are limited. Please indicate this on the booking form.
At the conclusion of the ride, guests are returned to Traralgon station at approximately 5-6pm.
Any alcohol required must be obtained prior to the tour beginning. Meals are not provided on the night of departure. The courtesy bus will stop for purchase of alcohol/food in Heyfield if required.
Failure to meet departure time results in finding your own transportation to the departure point. Most rides start at Bennison/Higgins Hut (see map on web/brochure.)
