Yankee Hat Rock Art site NNP

Lanyon Marketplace

Hello, We’ll meet at the entrance of McDonalds in Lanyon Marketplace which faces Tharwa Drive, at Conder at 8:45am. I’ll carry a hiking pole to identify me. We’ll carpool at 9:00am from McDonald’s to the Yankee Hat Walking Track Car Park, Old Boboyan Road, Rendezvous Creek in Namadgi National Park (~45 minutes). We will DEPART ON TIME😊. From there we’ll walk the heritage Yankee Hat walking trail. The walk is about 6km return, on a well defined undulating track which is fairly easy. Once we reach Yankee Hat, we'll have a look at the Aboriginal rock art. After this we’ll head back to the carpark. NB: Those participating in the walk are responsible for their own safety and well being, should be adequately prepared and take sufficient food, water, and warm clothing for their individual needs. *ADD ON OPTION (1.5-2 hrs)* If part or all the group want a longer walk we can add an extra 5km return walk along Gudgenby bush regeneration fire trail (slightly undulating). We can only do this if the return car pooling works for the number of people who wish to leave/stay longer. Opportunity to see Wallaroos, wallabies, kangaroos and yellow and also red breasted robins. If people are interested, we can visit the Lanyon homestead for a beverage break afterwards.
