Booroomba Rocks to Mt Tennant

This is a reasonably easy 7.5 km all day bushwalk in northern Namadgi National Park, involving a short car shuffle. From Booromba Rocks carpark we will use the Australian Alps Walking Track to slowly walk down Booromba Creek to Bushfold Flats. After lunch we will then walk out to the gate on Apollo Road via the southern end of the Mt Tennent Fire Trail.

 

The Booromba Creek section involves a descent on a narrow track, followed by a flat section around Bush-fold Flats and a steepish descent on the fire trail with loose gravel underfoot, and finally a short climb back to Apollo Road. It should be suitable for reasonably fit folk who are steady on their feet.

 

At this time of year in these wet creek and dry forest habitats we might expect to see Eastern Yellow and Scarlet Robins, various thornbills, White-browed Scrubwren, Red-browed Finch, Brush Cuckoo and, if we are lucky, Superb Lyrebird and Pilotbird. Raptors are a good possibility in the open country.

Meet at 8.30 am at the Namadgi Visitors Centre carpark, where we will arrange the car shuffle logistics and carpool if possible. Bring lunch and water.
