Track Notes

With daylight savings soon to come to an end and with the Bullen Range to the west, there was not quite as much daylight for walking as I planned. But we had a nice stroll a bit over 2 km north from Kambah Pool and plenty of enjoyable chatter.

Great views down to the Murrumbidgee River.

Don’t tell anyone that I arrived early and went in ∼700m to try to find GC2A9HV Vantage Point, but couldn’t. And it’s an ammo box. That shows you how good a cacher I am.

Anyone wanting to get to Forster trig could come in this way ∼1.8km then, when the scrub clears to the east, double back and approach the hill up from the NW.

Thanks folks, an enjoyable hour or so.
