Could someone tell me if its possible to leave the car at the gate where Kennedys road and Lone pine trail meet? Do I need to obtain any permission from the landowners? lastly, is the road 2wd accessible?
Thanks in advance!

Look like there is clear access from Kennedys Rd but I can't give you a definitive answer. I am pretty sure this guy did a bike tour through there some years back, he may be able to help: https://www.youtube.com/user/co2friendly/featured
. He has a contact email on his YouTube channel.

Sure is no worries at all. Left mine there many a time. Right near the creek.
Great walk up by the way. Steep at first.

Thanks for the reply guys. I didn't think it would be an issue. I am always looking for new ways to access that part of the park in winter and it seemed like a good way in.

It is always useful to contact the land owner. I did a trip from that area many many years ago leaving the vehicles near Yaouk - Half Moon Peak, Morgan, Murray, Bimberi, down across the Cotter then up Kelly, Scabby and back down to Yaouk. Fantastic granite slabs to walk down as you come off Scabby to the west.

Thanks Mark. While I agree with you about contacting landowners, it is sometimes easier said then done. Often they are in a paddock or don’t have a phone number to dial.
Yes, it is one of my favourite areas in the alps. Scabby Range in particular. I was supposed to head up there last weekend but snow and ice slowed my advance down Mt Namadgi to Rotten swamp and I had to sleep on top of Mt Namadgi, which was lovely.
I normally access this area from the ACT side or in summer from Pockets Saddle road.
I’ll try and obtain some phone numbers now.
Mt Kelly from Mt Namadgi last weekend.
