A night camping at Mount Coree


I spent Friday and evening camped at Mount Coree in Brindabella National Park which has a prominent fire tower that is manned by the ACT.

I think we are very lucky in Canberra to have so many remote campsites within an hours drive from the suburbs.

Access to the Coree campground was closed at the Canberra end because of unsafe track conditions but was accessible via Picadilly Circus and Two Sticks Road off Brindabella Road.


The campground is untamed, small and basic having a well maintained pit toilet and a few picnic tables.


The trail up to Mount Coree is a challenging drive on a very rough surface and I found myself parking and walking the last 50 mtres to the summit.
