Micalong Creek Bridge Repairs

Following one of our regular track audits, some significant damage to a log bridge over the Micalong Creek was discovered. The bridge is located in between Micalong Ck Campsite and Bossawa Campsite and is approximately 5km north of Brindabella Rd.

For the safety of track users, a detour around the bridge has been put in place effective immediately. The detour uses a section of forestry road on the northern side of the creek but does require the traverse of the creek at an existing ford.

Please do not attempt to cross Micalong Creek via the damaged structure as it is extremely hazardous. For more information, please call NSW Crown Lands on 1300 886 235 or contact the Track Manager.

Repairs to bridge will be undertaken over the coming weeks.

Lankey's Creek Detour

This sign will be in place at both ends of the detour.

A detour is currently in place through the “Ardsley” pine plantation at Lankey’s Creek while harvesting takes place in the area.

A 4km section of the Hume and Hovell Track is affected by the Forestry operations and a detour is in place, as per the map, to avoid any clashes between harvest machinery and Hume and Hovell Track users.


The detour runs from the Holbrook-Jingellic Road to Woomargama State Forest. All Hume and Hovell signage has been moved onto the detour route for easy navigation.
 

This detour remains in place until further notice.
