POINT HUT CROSSING

Point Hut Crossing near the Canberra suburb of Gordon was once an important place to cross the often enlarged Murrumbidgee River. Stock were for generations pushed across here to the fertile valleys beyond the river. It was also the place where the original Lanyon Station began which stretched all the way to the crossing at Tharwa.

A nice spot...


The entrance from the east...


Popular swimming and BBQ spot...


Dogs (on and off leash) are apparently welcome.

UPDATE: I have a post with pictures and video of the crossing in flood (here)

Access is from Tharwa Drive to Woodcock Drive then Point Hut Road.
