Meeting Place and Time

Harvey Norman car park Unit 7/94 Borella Rd, Albury NSW 2640 at 8am for car pooling to Samuel Bollard campground - about 45  mins

Camping the night before at the delightful Samuel Bollard campground on  the Sat prior to the walk is an option- let me know if that interests you

 

WALK Location: Samuel Bollard campground is in the western section of Woomargama National Park - the walk will start and finish there.

The Walk - involves a 13km return through undulating country along beautiful walking trails resplendent with flora - this will help ease the pain of a total ascent and descent of about 700m - but the plan is to start early and take plenty of rests. There is a nice bench to sit on at the turn around point (approx 6.5km out)

Its also possible for shorten the walk by simply deciding weve gone far enough and can turn around and return to the start
