Meet at Williamsdale on the Friday morning ready for a 10:30 am departure. An early lunch in Cooma. Arrive at the Gungarlin River Campground about 3:00 pm.
Walks: There are a number of pleasant walks in the area, including to Davey’s Hut., which is within easy walking distance of the campground.
Fishing; Gungarlin River is a popular trout stream.
4WD exploring; There is an interesting drive (approx 3-hour return) from the Campground to the edge of the Jagungal Wilderness. A return walk (approx 2 hours) to CesJacks Hut from the park gate is also a possibility.
And for those who just want to chill out? Why not?
The camp ground is at an altitude around 1200 metres, so the evenings will most likely be cool (or possibly freezing). The road in reaches 1400 metres, and can get snow on it. The walk to Cesjacks is along the Main Range, at around 1700 metres.
Depart for home after lunch on the Sunday.
