Alternative access 6.2km SW from Wail on Polkemet Rd (gravel), west 6.2km on Hinnebergs Rd , north 1k to Big Bend camp.
See Wail State Forest notes - Bottlebrush track is very sandy in parts and best avoided by 2WD, I found this out the hard way! I was told by Parks Vic staff that Ironbark track is stone and much better way to access river.
