Bright Victoria.

I should have said this would be best for Melbourne people, can be done as a day trip.

A friend just had a crash near the top of Hotham. Travelling near the look out (Harrietville to Hotham) at about 30 km/h (the corner can be taken at 100 km/h no dramas) when he just lost the front end as he was about to enter the car park. The problem was the bitumen, the mix is designed for snow and gets very slippery/soft in hot weather and provides minimal traction. I think the problem is on the Harrietville side and rather than the Omeo side. So take care if playing.

Thanks for that info. Didn't go yet. Maybe I'll first try going there with a car as it won't be much cooler this time of year, not to extent that you can bet on it in advance.
