The Brindies is always good for a drive.

Head up to the Top of Mt Coree for a look over all of ACT/NSW , and see what the Fires have done.

Isn't a difficult drive. The good thing (if there is such a thing) about the fires , is the ablility to see a lot more tracks. Some we didn't even know where there.

There is a bit of everything out they way , from Touring type stuff , to some pretty difficult tracks.

We're in the process of finishing trek notes for this are including, Mt Coree, Flea Creek and McIntyres Hut. We're going out next Saturday to do a double check of the route notes. Hate for anyone to follow them and get lost.

If you want to tag along, we're always more than happy to show off our backyard. Or if you'd like a set of the notes (99.9% sure there right) just call in and we'll give you a set to explore on your own.

Steve, how many are heading up on Saturday? Did Flea creek over easter for 2 nights, beautiful area, not too many yahoo's. Fishing wasnt too good, but was good to get away.Is Mt Coree is a turn to the left after leaving Flea creek, as in just passed the first little stream?

As it stands at the moment just us, the tracks in the Brindies are very weather dependant, eg difficulty. A bit of rain and it's a whole different drive.

Yes Mt Coree is the trail just after the first little stream, it's well worth the drive for the view from the top!!!

THATS Flea Creek is it ????

Didn't know that . . .

We normally do a loop from Condor Creek , Mt Coree , then Two Sticks Rd ??? , and back out onto the main Road at the Bendora Junction (Piccadilly Circus ???)

Good for a Drive.

Approx 5.4kms along Brindabella Rd after Piccadilly Circus you turn right onto Gentle Annie Trail this takes you down to Flea Creek.

About 17kms earlier is the bridge over Condor Creek, not sure if they join at any stage though

We've only been members of the ACT4wd Club for around 12 months, and due to shift work I haven't been able to attend many meetings or trips, but when I have gone on a trip or when we went to the Xmas party we found them to be a very friendly welcoming group of people.

There are a few different clubs around most of them have website you can go to!!

Where abouts in belconnen are you and what do you drive??

Hi Steve,

How might I get a copy of your route notes?? It sounds like somewhere I need to go and explore (I'm newish to Canberra). I've heard of Flea Creek, but any set of notes might make sure I don't miss anything on the way!!
Cheers,

I have sent you a message.

The fires have had a huge impact and not having had any rain for about 2 months has made things worse - the Webs Spur/ Flea creek tracks have patches off bull dust - normally only seen in central Aust !
Plus all the Pine tree forests have had to be clear felled and burnt.

The suburbs are starting to get back to 'normal' - a lot of the 350 houses that were lost have been replaced.
There is still a Bush Fire enquiry in progress, with everyone still trying to blame anything except that it was a 'natural occurence,' and failing to be prepared - people are 'unaware' that they live in the country in Canberra!
