We were dropped off just by the Cotter Pumping Station, just before the bridge over the Murrumbidgee River. Cotter Road gets you there. We were picked up at Kambah Pool.Walk
I did this walk with a friend from church, Shamus G. The Kambah Pool Walking Track starts at the gate between the Pumping Station and the bridge. It follows the river, passing behind Camp Cottermouth and Greenhills Conference Centre. It was fairly drab and dry looking post fire and with little rain.
We stopped for lunch opposite Bullen Hill. The Bullen Range, across the river, is a striking feature along the western bank.
We skirted the 'Nude Bathing Area' sign near Kambah Pool.
Distance: 12.6km Time: 9.00am-1.35pm with 45 minutes of stops.
