The Jagungal Wilderness
The Jagungal Wilderness is one of the most picturesque areas in The Kosciusko National Park. It is the area stretching from Mt Jagungal south to Guthega Power Station and offers great views towards the Main Range. The best way to appreciate the true beauty of the Snowy Mountains is to get off the beaten track and explore The Jagungal Wilderness.
We chose to begin our ride at Round Mountain which is near Mt Selwyn ski fields. From here we headed towards Derschkos Hut where we stopped for lunch.
Forgotten Gold and Aboriginal Trails
I like to take a leisurely three or four day bike trek through the mountains of the Murray river high country.
Some years back, while browsing through the “Man from Snowy River” Museum in Corryong,I stumbled upon an old map dated back to the late 1890s where I discovered a couple of old tracks not shown on any current map publications. One was an old gold mining and cattlemen track and the other a track of sorts which follows the gradient of the old blacks track before European settlement.
