Saturday 14 September: Booroomba trig and Blythburn Cottage – L/M

From the Tidbinbilla Road north of Castle Hill, walk through the 'Booroomba' property to Booroomba trig (which is nowhere near Booroomba Rocks). Steeply down to cross Blue Gum Creek and visit Blythburn Cottage, built around 1885 (the site of an all-female dairy!). Exit via track into Namadgi National Park, crossing Blue Gum Creek again and so to the northern end of Bushfold Flats. Join the AAWT and ascend to the north ridge of Mt Tennent and down to the Namadgi Visitors Centre. I would encourage walkers who wish to extend their day walking to join in. We have nearly 12 hours of daylight and can take the walk at a moderate pace. Around 20 km and 800 m climb. Maps: Tuggeranong, Corin Dam, Williamsdale. Leader:John Evans 0417 436 877, Transport: ~$10 per person; car shuttle required. Further details at www.johnevans.id.au Limit: 12.

14–15 September: Woila Clearing – M/R

This walk is out and back from Pikes Saddle, descending and returning on a long spur to Woila Creek. The country is spectacular. Map: Badja. Leaders: Jenny & Rob Horsfield 6231 4535(h). Transport: ~$100 per car.

Sunday 15 September: Peak 1409 – M/R

Peak 1409 is the prominent rocky shale peak visible from Canberra as being in between Tidbinbilla and the Brindabellas. Located only a few crow-flying kilometres NE of Corin Dam, but along rough scrubby terrain. The walk will commence at the dam, proceed around a bend in the Cotter River and then follow ridges up to the summit. If the road is closed, we may need to try an alternative route from Fishing Gap. This is an exploratory walk for the leader. ~600 m climb. Map: Corin Dam. Leader: David D. Transport: ~$15.

Tuesday 17 September: Jerrabattgulla Creek, Southern Tributaries – M/R/W/part X

The walk is in a Preserved Forest area in the Tallaganda State Forest, 20 km east of Jerangle. We will revisit the southern Jerrabattgulla Creek system where I led a walk on 5/3/2013. The going was slow on that trip so we didn't have time to explore one of the bigger tributaries. I also plan to have another look at the waterfall that we found, this time from below. Start on the Jerrabattgulla Forest Road at approx. Krawaree 277278. Follow a fire trail north for 2 km to Jerrabattgulla Creek. We will then follow a creek to the base of the falls and continue upstream to a creek junction at Krawaree 271294. We then follow the side creek south for a few hours until we intersect the Jerrabattgulla Road. Note: the southern tributaries are densely vegetated and much of the walking is difficult and suitable only for experienced walkers. There may be some wading to reach the base of the waterfall. An alternative walk will be run, at short notice, if the forest access tracks are wet. Maps: Jerangle, Krawarree and South Coast Forest Map 1:150,000. Leader: Ian Wright 6286 1473, Transport: 200 km ~$74 per car. Limit: 8.
