While we did this in Easter 2021, I finally got around on the weekend to writing it up :D

I enjoyed your trip report and videos. I have walked all of that section/terrain of the AAWT except for The Omeo Hwy to Mt. Wills
section.

Thanks PCV. The section from the Omeo Hwy to Mt Wills was "difficult" only because of the car sickness aspect. But the top half of the walk is great.

I have been to the Mt. Wills hut a number of times and slept in the hut. Walking up from Big River Saddle to Mt. Wills hut coming from Cleve Cole Hut in one day was the one that killed Elvis.

Great write-up! Looks beautiful, thanks for the prompt to get up there and do some of that.

We would have almost crossed paths - I was staying up at Dinner Plain at Easter 2021, went for a few day walks and a bike ride down to Red Robin mine.

Thanks Stevage and Watertank. As a walk, it was one of the easier going walks :)
