KING RIVER RUN – High Country Camping Trip, Victoria | WE WILL ROAM


2018 was in many ways a bit of a blur With family friends work and moving house twice We decided to move out of the city Closer to how and where we want to spend our time It’s early January and with temperatures set to punch through 40 We saddle up kick into the new year in a way that we’ve been planning for months The King River slips through a corner of the Alpine National Park in Victoria Even at this time of year it’s quiet secluded and fresh enough to take the edge off the heat From long spur track top burnt top track and burnt top track a Series of sharp right turns begins the steady ascent to what we hope will be those classic high country views we love The weather though in complete contrast to the extreme here the day before quickly turns We watch the rain roll through the valley for a few seconds But with this part of the track, basically an exposed ribbon along the ridge line We drop to first low for the last loose and slightly sketchy bit By now everything is pretty wet Burnt top isn’t too challenging a track but in places it’s rocky and can be pretty slow going Pulling into camp just in time for the sun to reappear. We’re tired hungry and a little damp With everything hiung out to dry in the fading sunlight we settle down for a night back on the king river So Plan for today is finish up. We started yesterday It all the way up to like cobbler and Have a snack Whilst the intent of the weekend was to find rivers, the intent was no to fall in. As the crow flies we had around six Ks to go to reach Lake cobbler With about a 700 meter rise in elevation things got angular pretty quick A moment of navigational excellence on Ant’s part would send us on a slight detour via mounts Speculation for a while Hunger was setting in by this point I reckon but the views on the way down here are just too good to pass up And she was the final Waypoint on the map 400 Ks from home a hundred and fifty that through River Basin and Alpine range. We’ve not another soul in sight More than ever before we have a deep appreciation for being able to get out explore and discover these places for ourselves It’s these quiet moments in which we unwind 2018 was a whirlwind and who knows what the year ahead will bring But it’s off to a pretty good start And with that in mind, we turn the key certain to one thing as much as we can We will roam.

  1. Love it ! Very professional . Loving your camp set up ,works well . Thanks for sharing.

  2. Beautiful video, such a magic area of the High Country, i was camped next the King River Hut with a few mates over the Australia day weekend

  3. Hey welcome back! Loved it, great new logo. What is the brand of your pop top roof?

  4. Hey, you two. Very good looking video.
    This was very well shot and graded and you made me want to go back to lake cobbler and Mt. Speculation, it's been far too long. How good is the slow and rocky climb to the top? Did you walk along the ridge once you were there?

    It's by far my favourite part of the high country.

    Again, well done

  5. Glad you’re back with the new format. The VO seems a bit stiff, I’m sure you’ll break it in soon.

    Do miss the “hello Mum” series though.

    Onward and upward

  6. Toyota land Cruiser 70(76,78,79) series heavy-duty the best of the best 4×4👍👍👍💪💪💪, i❤️car, 🎥👍👍

  7. Good to see you guys back in action doing what you love. Didn’t know it was you guys when I clicked on the video because of the new name. But as soon as I seen the first 5 seconds I knew who it was. You have a very distinct video editing style.

  8. Another truely breathtaking video! Nothing transports me away into a happy place like your videos do.

  9. Lovely, really captures the still and quiet nature. Love your beautiful film work, thanks for sharing. 👍😊

  10. Troopy Travel is a better name, but no worries. I think its time to invest in some wheel arch flares to cover those tyres.

  11. Fantastyczne!! 10 minut relaksu z przepięknym okolicznościami przyrody! Pozdrowienia z Polski!

  12. Nice. I saw you drive into camp at Kings Hut on that rainy afternoon. You arrived just after us. Will have to get up to Lake Cobbler next time.

  13. Awesome video guys, I love the pace of the video – really feels like I'm there with you guys and brings me the sense of calm and relaxation I get when I'm out camping & 4wding in my Landcruiser.

    Your videos give us inspiration to continue to explore our backyard and really appreciate the landscape. We've begun uploading some videos too, much more amateur than yours though!

    Keep up the good work!

  14. Wow, you guys are stepping it up now.

  15. Reminded me so much of the Boundary Waters Wilderness of Northern MN and out adventures there in the 90's. Nice production!

  16. I seriously do not understand how you guys don't have more subs. The filming and editing is very very good! Fair dinkum! <3

  17. Beautiful footage and an amazing final product. It's not too focused on the vehicle or on the hardcore tracks. It's a bit of everything. The car, the scenery, the camping life, the journey and the story. Subscribed and notifications on

  18. You guys do such a brilliant job of these episodes:D We can get enough!!!

  19. Hey guys. Great video. Any chance you happen to have the trip mapped out? Am about to head up that way and this looks like the perfect trip. Would love to follow it with the names of the tracks you took

  20. Hi We will roam, I an new to you tube and absolutely love the simplicity and rawness, looking forward to catchup on other content. Do you have information on vehicle specs as we are in process of looking to do similar either slide on, camper trailer or troopy.
