There's so many you can drive to, is there a certain area you want to go? Too many to list, find some you want to get to and people can comment on access.

Leaving from methven area.
If it's possible would love to get close to lyell hut.
But Mt Somers/ stavely area is good too.
It's there 4wd access to woolshed creek? Or pinnacles huts?

Thanks

I have only driven to reischek hut and Lauper bivy. Definitely can't go further on reishek side, the lauper side you can go a bit further but boulders get big and river crossing get a lot harder from there. Lawerence hut and bivy are an easy drive, mistake flats hut can drive to. I haven't been to pinnacles hut or wool shed creek. Looks like you can drive to woodshed creek hut but not pinnacles hut?????

You can drive straight to the front door of the Avoca Hut/Homestead.
