Early Snow in the Brindabellas


The plan was to camp at Flea Creek Campground but the onset of wet weather made the notion of a steep incline on a greasy, clay fire trail unpalatable. We instead went looking for the Blue Range Campground and set out up Blue Range Road to where it joins with Two Sticks Road just short of the road to the Mount Coree summit.

As we progressed the rain turned to snow and the chill from the brisk wind was noticeably uncomfortable whenever we left the vehicles. The decision was made to abandon the adventure.

I did learn a lot about the area and a return trip is planned, however in the current season a booking of the Blue Range Hut as a basecamp could be the go.

A visit to the Yankee Hat Aboriginal Rock Art Site

It is an easy walk through an enormous grass covered plain at the base of Yankee Hat Mountain. On the walk we disturbed quite a few small mobs of Eastern Grey Kangaroos as we progressed along the well marked track.

I took a few minutes of video of the site. It really is a unique and special place.
