Hume And Hovell Track

The Track follows the footsteps of explorers Hamilton Hume and William Hovell on their expedition in 1824. The track runs over 426km from Yass to Albury with several access points available in the Tumbarumba Region. It provides something for everyone, the opportunity to explore rugged bushland, visit one of the picnic and camping trackheads, and discover native flora and fauna.

A good access point for the track is at the Henry Angel Trackhead, located  7 kilometres south of Tumbarumba on the Tooma Road. This picnic and camping area provides a good base for day walks in either direction. The walk from this point on the Hume and Hovell Walking Track to the Tumbarumba Creek is 6km one way with the opportunity to check out the evidence of early gold mining sluicing and dredging sites on Burra Creek, including a 70 metre tunnel which has now become the creek course.

For experienced hikers, a total of 17 campsites have been developed along the whole track. Each campsite is about a day's walking from the next.

Map kits are for sale at the Tumbarumba Visitor Information Centre.
