35603 Enjoyed this track with the Rav 4, it was our first track we did alone, we got lost and nearly ended up back on the Great western highway, but soon turned back to find the track, we then found a group to follow and had a lot of fun, in the dry. Unfortunately the Hill End to Bathurst Bridle track was closed due to landslide. Toyota RAV4 Jan 1, 2013
