The most scenic route to Woods Point is to follow the Snowy River up into the forest. From the main street of Orbost turn at the Club Hotel, heading west on McLeod Street. Once out of town McLeod Street turns into the
“B” Road, which will take you through the farmland on the Snowy River flats.
You will come to a cattle grid followed by a gate that you should continue over and through (please leave the gate as you found it). You are now on Garnetts Track.
After going over the Wibenduck Creek you will go past the last of the private property before heading into State Forest. Follow Garnetts Track and turn left down Wood Point Track which will take you directly to the camping ground.
The camping ground is accessible by 2WD but care needs to be taken on the gravel forest roads as they can be slippery in wet conditions.
