Mt Wills is  past Mitta Mitta on the Omeo Highway. We will car camp at Lightning Creek (approx 23km from Mitta Mitta) on the Friday night. Saturday morning will see us drive a short 20km to the turn off for the walk.  Mount Wills is an extension of the Long Ridge that comes off the eastern side of Mount Bogong. The summit is a broad ridge that drops away into gullies, covered in open snow gum woodland, with big old trees, grasses,  granite boulders and outcrops. We will take the shortest way in, via a 2WD track off the Omeo highway to the Tallangatta ski club for our walk to the, summit. This area is ringed by a broken cliff-line and steep slopes on the east, with fantastic views in all directions, back up to the High Plains and as far as the Main Range of the Snowies.

This is an easy/medium day walk to the top of Mt Wills and a car shuffle will be needed so that we can walk through to Sunnyside on the Omeo Highway.

Distance about 10km, 500m climb, 600m descent.
