Jounama Creek Walk, Kosciuszko NP

A fairly easy walk up the picturesque Jounama Creek as far as some big rocks and a swimming hole. We did the Old Mountain Road Track from the same starting point at Jounama Creek Campground near Talbingo, at the northern end of Kosciuszko National Park. 

Track notes at the end.

Track Notes

Jounama Creek and Old Mountain Road, Kosciuszko National Park
Both routes are pretty obvious. The Jounama Creek route follows the creek, and the Old Mountain Road route follows an old mountain road. It’s all in the names!

There’s brief information on the Tumut tourist information site, and in this NPWS brochure. We met some guys coming down the creek who had caught a ton of fish (trout I think) somewhere on an overnight trip, but just for sport: they weren’t carrying any out with them.
