Mount McDonald via Lower Cotter Catchment
Starting from the car park just off Brindabella Road, ACT, this walk visits the Lower Cotter Catchment Lookout first, then takes you to the summit of Mt. McDonald and back. As you’re getting closer to the lookout, prepare to be dazzled by the panoramic views over the dam and Cotter River after each turn. Stop and take that view in for a moment, then set course for the summit for a more panoramic type of view as you’ll be able to see tens of kilometres into the distance all around. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
