Please abide by any NSW or Vic COVID-19 health requirements. Members must provide their own sanitisers, gloves, wipes, masks, etc. This will be a car pooling and car shuffling event. 

Meet at the Kinross Woolshed at 9am. Today's event will start with a 20km drive from Kinross Woolshed to Bowna Road. This involves a 4km drive of pt3 of Albury's Hume & Hovell track; then drive the whole 11km of pt4; then drive the first 4km of pt 5. All of these stages follow the Hume & Hovell track adjacent to local roads and are difficult to walk due to the long grass and closeness to the road in many places.

We will work out car pooling/shuffling arrangements before we all head off from Kinross.

When we get to Plunkett Road off Bowna Road we park the cars, move some cars to the other end and walk a 7 km H&H track that takes us past Pleasure Point and along the lake's edge to Wymah Rd near the Great Aussie Holiday Park. On the way back we may do a reccie for the start and finish points of the elusive pt 4 of Albury's H&H. 

Toilets only available at the Kinross Woolshed (but not open at 9am) and Thurgoona Plaza. 

dogs OK but dog owners please respect the cars of other drivers.

There may be overhanging long grass on the track, so dress appropriately please.

Bring hat, water and a morning tea snack and wet weather gear. Coffee and cake at Thurgoona. 

Any late cancellations please call me on 0456 100 183
