Hi Joshua,
There are many track in that area. Seasonal Closures apply to many so check with the Tumut Visitor centre before heading out. Ph 02 6947 7025 They usually stock a fairly good range of maps.

Head over Jounama Dam wall towards Batlow & you find many tracks, you can follow the Blowering foreshore back around via Tumut or head over to the Elliot Way & return via Lobb's Hole back onto the Snowy Mtn Highway near Cumberland Gap. You will have to ford the Yarrangobilly River so be wary if there has been recent rain. Goggle Lobb's Hole-Ravine Hotel for more info. Seek local advise at the time.

From Long Plain you can go through to Brindabella, or Currango & return entering the Snowy H/way near Providence Portal. There are also Coolamine Hut & Blue water Holes the area. The maps will show the road passing through Lake Tantangara but at the moment it is very low at 20%.

Check out the Goobarragandra Track & Mack's Crossing & return via Tumut.

Yarrangobilly Caves are also worth a visit.

Be weather wise as conditions can change very quickly in that area. Hema Snowy/Kosciusko Map covers that area.
Enjoy your stay.

Also head up to Talbingo spillway and look out for a gate on the right which will take you up the powerline trail to Buddong falls and follw thgw western side of the Dam all the way thru to Sue City.

Thanks for that I'll definitely try and check it out but are we allowed to drive on the fire trails down there?

Joshua, As I said in the first paragraph of my reply check with the Tumut Visitor Centre. It depends on which one you wish to use. Some tracks in the National Park are marked "Management Only", some incur seasonal closures whilst other are open all year. National Parks Office is in the Visitor Centre.
All the best, hope you enjoy, its a great area.
