Completed 3 Days+

Walk, Back-pack

Located in the heart of Namadgi National Park lies the iconic Mt Namadgi. While it may not be the ACT's highest peak, it is the tallest mountain that stands wholly within the territory.
Day 1: From Yankee Hat car park walk the Gudgenby grasslands to cross Middle Creek and then handrail it upwards to set up camp at Big Creamy Flats. 13.5 km, 550m ascent.
Day 2: Begin with a morning summit of Mt Namadgi, followed by an exploration (subject to the condition of the scrub and terrain) along the north west spur to the granite bulb (image - John Evans), before returning to camp in the afternoon.
Day 3: Back out the reverse of Day 1.

Suitable for experienced, fit, off-track pack walkers accustomed to scrub bashing 8 hour days.
