Event Report: Three Mile Dam Kiandra Kosciuszko NT Park

The campground has a toilet and 2 pick-nick tables. Good mobile reception and of course it's a very pretty spot.
The wind was strong when we had to set up the tents, it required 4 person for each tent. Trevor put up a large tarp first over the pick nick table , very handy when the rain came.
In the afternoon after the rain passed we walked the 3 km gold seekers loop across the road.

On day 2 we left a car on Gooandra Track and drove on to Bullocks Hill Trail. We started walking along a bridle trail , after 2.9 km this track was supposed to meet the Gooandra track. Well, too many horse trails, we weren't sure, so we looped back to the cars. 4 of us followed Trevor and his GPS to the Hut. 2 went back to Camp, and Don ignored the no go sign and drove through the open gate on the Gooandra trail before some snowy workers asked him to turn around. Nice try Don. Barbara and Shauna got out of the Car and did not have to walk long to the Hut. The large Gooandra Hut is at a lovely spot . Due to work being done on the snowy hydro the track got upgraded to accommodate large trucks. So, the 5 km hike back to the car was not very nice. Snow shoeing in winter would be the better option. The bush bashers done a little over 12 km

On day 3 we met 2 Tumut club members and drove to the end of Bullocks trail. We crossed the Tantangara river first and deposited our wading shoes in the bushes. From there it is 1km up the hill and then 1.6 km down to the Gauging station, we inspected a weather station on the way down. Morning Tea, and then the fun began. 3 went across the river and up over the hill on the other side, the rest followed Don off track along the river bank. There where some tricky hairy bits before becoming easier. Around the river bend we met the others again and all of us arrived at Hains Hut in time for lunch. On the map its mentioned the hut is on at a supposedly pretty location.....well........!! The walk back was through pretty country. All up it was 11.22 km

On Day 4 we done a lovely 9.5 km return walk to Harveys Hut, which by the way is on a pretty location above Chance creek. I definitely would like to go there again. We walked up the bridle trail from Rocky Plain Camping Ground and then followed the Tantangara walking trail to the hut. It was windy so we did not go up to MT. Tantangara, 2 km return from the turn off to the hut. This walk can be done from the Chain fitting bay 4 km passed the Link road towards Adaminaby, 10.5 km return, the track is marked all the way. It's classed as a grade 5 walk.

We packed up in the morning because of coming rain. So after the walk we headed to the Cabramurra Nordic Shelter for the night. Good dinner at the Cabramurra Bistro. We must have been tired , all 8 of us climbed in to our sleeping bags at 9pm.
It was a good call, heavy rain in the morning.
