Waterhole Hut and Lone Pine Homestead Ruins - Southern Namadgi
This walk in the extreme south of the ACT starts on the Bicentennial National Trail on the Yaouk Road west of Shannons Flat where a 2km fire trail walk quickly leads us back into the ACT. We then start our 9 km anti-clockwise loop via Waterhole Hut (morning tea) to the intersection of the Bulls Flat and Grassy Flat fire trails and lunch just north of there at the Lone Pine Homestead ruins. The return to the cars is 7.1 km via Grassy Creek Fire Trail. The walk is longish but gentle, with only minor elevation changes. About half of the walk is in open grassland and the other half more sheltered.
Although the start is a little further away than usual, the starting point gives us quicker and shorter access to this less walked area. (BBC notes)
