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.
