Bulls Head, Brindabellas, ACT
These pictures were taken by ACTEW staff and I over
the 29th-31st May 2000. During this period the Brindabellas experienced
some of the heaviest snow falls ever. On Sunday 28th May snow covered
much of the ACT and the surrounding regions.The following page offers a selection of pictures
taken using a Kodak DC240 digital camera.

This book was published in late 2015 providing useful insights & information about the eastern part of the Jagungal wilderness area of the park. It covers the area from Tin Hut in the south to Mackays Hut in the north & Daveys Hut in the east. It is generally east of the AAWT along the
Valentine & Grey Mare Trails. It covers many of the tracks & routes I have walked since 1990 and Robert has drawn on some of my information as well as those of the older horsemen and graziers. It should be emphasised the area is rugged & on the Great Divide and associated ranges like the Kerries and Mt Jagungal it can get to 2000m of higher. Conditions can change rapidly and walkers need to be properly equipped. Mobile phone reception is poor although there is some reception from Mt Jagungal, OKeefes Hut & near Tin Hut.
Information on where to buy the book is in the attached pdf document with some samples from the book.
