Description: This walk is in Snow Gum forest with a shrub layer interspersed with subalpine wildflowers with good views across the ACT. We will set off from the carpark and stop for lunch at either Stockyard Spur or Pryor’s Hut (depending on our progress on the day), and then retrace our steps back to the carpark. Previous highlight species include Gang-gang Cockatoo, Olive Whistler, Flame Robin, Spotted Quail-thrush, Grey Currawong and Little Raven. We might also encounter some interesting non-avian montane specialists – butterflies like Macleay’s Swallowtail and Forest Brown, and reptiles like Mountain Dragon and Blotched Bluetongue.

Please note there are no facilities available on this walk; the nearest toilets are at Bull’s Head picnic area. In the event of rain, this walk will be cancelled.
