The ‘Sherwood’ historic site, formally known as the ‘Sherwood Homestead Complex’, is a European settler homestead site located on Uriarra Creek in the Blue Range Hut/Uriarra State Forest area. The homestead was occupied from 1863 to 1922. In September, the descendants of the daffodils planted there at that time should be in flower, a magnificent sight. More information on the Sherwood Homestead Complex is available online at and .

Please rendezvous for carpooling in the carpark of the Stromlo Forest Park at 8.00 am. We will drive to the Blue Range Hut and do a circular walk from there, about 10 km total distance, a bit hilly. Suggested contribution from each passenger to drivers: $5. We expect to arrive back in Canberra early to mid-afternoon. Please bring your lunch and water. There are no toilets at the venue.
