At the back of Williamsdale on the Monaro Highway, just out of Canberra a few kilometers down Angle Crossing Road you drive down a picturesque valley to another access point to the west across the Murrumbidgee, Angle Crossing.

The autumn movement of thousands of Yellow-faced and White-naped Honeyeaters (and lesser numbers of other species) from the mountains to warmer climes along the coast and further north is a feature of the Canberra birdwatching calendar in April. Apparently you can see thousands of honeyeaters passing through the Angle Crossing area on a good migration day.

The water flows over a concrete crossing before the road heads off toward the Gudgenby river near Tharwa.
