This section of the GNW takes us along dirt roads and trails alongside the wide Mooney Mooney Creek, and then under the M1 Mooney Mooney Bridge. The wide track continues upstream, passing a few campsites before crossing the wide creek at a pleasant large rock platform. Not too long after crossing the creek we will pass the lower Mooney Mooney Dam where the old trail leads you uphill past another campsite, a quarry to the Somersby Reservoir. The track then leads past some rural properties and across the delightful Robinson Creek among the Gymea Lilies before finishing with a section of road walking to the Somersby Store. Car pooling and a car shuffle will be required for this activity.  When registering please provide your member number and mobile.
