Ben Cruachan Gippsland


The Ben Cruachan Walking Club was established on 26 June 1965 by a group of like-minded bushwalkingScreenshot 2023 06 28 155736 enthusiasts at a meeting on the summit of Ben Cruachan, a mountain rising to 836 metres about 25 kilometres northwest of Maffra.  The 'bump' at the summit of Ben Cruachan is from a now disused helipad .  The locals say that when they are travelling along the highway from Melbourne, when they see Ben Cruachan, recognized by its 'bump', they know they are nearly home.
