Getting There

This walk was organised and led by Peter W as a Wednesday walk on a Thursday:

(Mt Tennent – I propose to go from the park visitors centre up the track to the top, and come down the same way. 10 km, 750 m. We will be back for a late lunch at home before the heat of the day. Leader Peter W. Meet at Kambah shops opposite the petrol station at 8 am.*** ).

8 of us met and drove to the Namadgi Visitors Centre car park.


A lovely half-day stroll, arranged and advertised at the last moment by Peter W. Three of the party were limbering up for weeks of walking in Patagonia.

A brief stop at Cypress Pine Lookout (see pic 1) then lovely to see water flowing under the bridges and over the rocks a bit further on. Always a grand view from the fire tower (see pics 2 and 3), with a special look up the Blue Gum Creek cut as I'm thinking of a wander down said creek.

Return via same, with a thunderstorm chasing us down the hill. Grand to have the track running as a rivulet and lovely after the rain stopped. Quite a show of lightening and thunder.

Thanks to Peter and Henry, Lionel, Madeleine, Mike and Annette and Penny.

Distance: 13.0km  Climb: 780m.  Time: 8.35am - 12.30pm (call it 4hrs), with 20mins of stops.
