We camped at Burrungubuggee Shelter site but next day it was absulitely impossible to make out way up the ridge withouth GPS as it was completely overgrown. When I look at this attempt today I laugh at ourselves and see how we were doomed to fail..

Grey Mare FT is north and west of Jagungal. Of you are going from Jagungal to Grey Mare FT you have to be on the summit ridge. Once you get below this there's rocks, scrub and steep gullies in most places. Also, if the weather is fine, why not go to the summit?

It sounds like you were just inexperienced and unable to navigate with a paper map or even judge the terrain correctly. I am certainly not saying that going from the Constances site to Tin hut is easy in terms of terrain but it is fairly straightforward in terms of navigation. A GPS is no substitute for critical thinking and micro navigation. Learning how to read a map and applying that learning when off track in the bush is priceless. Understanding what a contour line on a map tells you about whats in front of you is something that everyone should know before heading off track. Don't be fooled in to thinking a GPS will help you move through scrub efficiently.
