Event Report:

5 of us drove up to Munderoo on Friday evening and stayed overnight at Trevors place and awoke to a beautiful view of fog filled valleys. Early morning at Munderoo

The other walkers came from Tumut and Corryong and we all met on Mannus Creek road near the bridge, drove to the Mannus Lake campground leaving cars there and piled into 3 cars and drove to Henry Angel campground about 20 minutes away.

Crossing the first Style


The first section of the walk follows the Burra Creek as it flows toward Tumbarumba Creek. En route we explored the relics of the gold mining era and completed a side trip to Big Hill which was the place where Hume and Hovell's expedition first saw the Snowy Mountains.

Further on down the track we crossed the Tumbarumba Creek via a suspension bridge.

We then entered the Bogandyera Flora Reserve and climbed about 600m to Mt Garland road over the next 2 hours with a stop for lunch. We eventually emerged from the forest to views of Mannus Lake and continued through the forest crossing private property until we met the track beside the lake.

A late afternoon tea courtesy of Tumut and District Bushwalkers was thoroughly enjoyed before people went back to fetch the cars from Henry Angel campground.
