Aggie Gap / Mount Aggie, Canberra













This post follows on from here and here. This was our second stop on a return visit after exploring Bendora Dam and wanting to see Bendora Arbortetum. Located in the Namadgi National Park, forming part of the Brindabella Ranges and located near the NSW border, Mount Aggie's elevation is 1,421 metres.

'The short climb to Mount Aggie, named after Agnes Franklin a pioneer from nearby Brindabella Valley, commences at a small carpark at Aggie Gap (approximagtely 17.5km from Piccadilly Circus along the unsealed Mt Franklin Road). The unformed track climbs about 100m generally along the ACT-NSW border up to the open Mt Aggie summit. It passes through snow gum forest and open woodland. The summit lookout is on a rock platform slightly west of the track which continues north from the summit. The summit gives superb views of the mountainous regions of Kosciuszko National Park to the west and south of the ACT' - courtesy of www.npaact.org.au.
