Undertook my first real trek off-road today.Canberra to the summit of Mt Coree (3rd highest mountain the ACT), to the Gudgenby-Flea Creek confluence, and up the Brindebella valley before turning for home.

Mount Coree - yes to can drive to the summit. That is a fire tower. 1408 metres.


With my daughter at the trig station. At 1bout 11am it was 12 degrees - where as down below it was over 20.


There will be more of this I can tell you. Was guided by my BIL in his 4WD. Learned a lot from him and also about how capable the Prado is.

I have checked that route out on my Mudmaps Ipad app - Oh yes - am indulging myself.

What is special about it and/or what can I expect to enjoy.

Cheers

Terry,
Fairly easy drive but some good views from there.

Not as good as Mt Cooree though.

Terry,

Thanks for posting your photos of your "first real trek off road", they are great.

Glad you enjoyed it and it must have been special to share this with your daughter.

You have a very capable 4WD there in the Prado, so I hope you have lots and lots of great adventures. (how about a trip across the Simpson Desert?)

Australia is bless with some great tracks and places to see.

All the best

Rob

Bloody hell Robert. Give the poor bloke a chance to catch his breath. Hi

Good on you Terry.

Have you thought of getting any 4WD training before you get too adventurous? Maybe a club.
