Private properties in Brogers Valley beneath Barren Grounds

Postby DJ Wombat » Thu 30 May, 2024 5:42 pm

I'm planning a loop walk starting from Barren Ground carpark, off Flying Fox Pass, bashing downstreams along Brogers Creek (which I've already done), then get across some private land until reaching the start of Drawring Room Rock track, up to the rock, then off the saddle and link off Kangaroo Ridge Trail back to Barren Grounds. Full length is about 23 - 25km.

The only section I'm not sure is in the blue shaded circle, which are all private farms. There is a road, but I don't know if that's private or public. Have anyone ever walked across the area? Maybe stick to the Brogers creekbed is safter? Dealing with people is far more troublesome than dealing with nature.

Tricky one - there is a crown road, but the actual road doesn't follow the crown road in the blue section.

So you'd probably either need to get permission or stick to the creek (which appears to be Crown Land).

Late to this one.

I went for a run along that road once about eight years ago. The blue circle was about where I turned around because it started feeling like private property. A bit deliverance y, with some dilapidated houses and a few horses roaming on the road.

Incidentally, I was stopped from coming back up the hill with the switchbacks by a very angry dog. Had to wait for a car to come along and give me a lift.

Thank you guys for your replies. That's what I expected. Even a large section of Brogers Creek seems to be in private land.

I've tried descending from Cooks Nose Pass in Barren Grounds in order to join Brogers Creek Rd but that's a tougher bash.
