... bushwalking in the ACT and nearby NSW. I began my love affair with the ACT bush in 2004 after completing the Canberra Bushwalking Club's annual Navigation Refresher. Seven sessions of navigation and bushcraft shared by living legends had me hooked. It's grown from a passion to an obsession. With other responsibilities it's hard to get away overnight, so I usually only day walk. I like gadgets and technobabble. Information on this blog is shared in the hope that it might encourage others to get out and breathe a bit of fresh air.
Your thoughts here
  1. Hi, great list- must’ve been fun compiling! Do you know if some of the cotter waterfalls have been covered by the expanded dam? I’m looking forward to visiting some of these when in canberra

    • Hi Silvie – yes, great spots! I’m not aware of any falls on the Cotter River that would have been covered by the new dam filling. The upper Cotter Falls are pretty remote, upstream from Cotter Hut and Rolleys Flats

  2. Stockyard creek falls:

    How do you access the lower part of the falls? I can’t seem to find anything on the internet in regards of directions or a map.

    What do you recommend?

    • Hi Shawnee
      Visit the trip reports via the link next to the falls, for all 4 or the one you are interested in. Each trip report has a kmz file that you can fire into Google Earth. Alternatively, send me your email address via the Contact Johnny Boy message facility and I’ll return back to you map segments with the track on them.
