Camping near Tumut

Postby geekcampgirl » Tue May 29, 2007 5:30 pm

We're hoping to go camping on the long weekend and were thinking about somewhere near Tumut. We got the maps out and there looks like a reasonable place at the track head on the Goobagandra (sp?) River.
Anyone with any experience or ideas?

It was June, and despite me saying that the weather would not me, it did. We had very cold nights and it took a long time to thaw out from the frosty nights.

We were disappointed with the walking as well. North along the H&H track was straight up, and while pleasant enough, it was an out and back walk and I prefer to do a loop if I could.

Heading south along the track starts well with the swing bridge, but hten heads through paddocks with dire warnings about what will happen if you stray off the track into the private property.

We ended up drivng around (with limited maps) and found our way to Micalong Swamp and that was a beautiful area where you could camp in lovely forests.

But having said that, a friend of mine was telling me about where he took his family at this time last year and how they had a ball with the kids playing in the river and BBQs and lots of fun - and it turned out it was the same place!!

So I guess the 'take home message' is you get what you are looking for.

If you would like a quite out of the way spot to wet a line instead of going to the bigger dams , Paddy's River Dam is a nice little stop over in the bush between Batlow & Tumbarumba .
