Old Mountain Road Walking Track is a medium difficulty, four kilometre (one way) walk, taking approximately 1.5 hours.
The track, near Jounama Creek campground, is ideal for bushwalking if you're seeking a heart-pumping challenge, with birdwatching opportunities and scenic views along the way. Take in breathtaking views of Bogong Peaks, Jounama Pondage and Blowering Reservoir on this short, high-energy walk.
Descend through picturesque bushland to Jounama Creek, following Talbingo Mountain's first road, built in 1860 during the Kiandra gold rush. It's an ideal spot for a picnic and a dip if the weather is warm, or for sitting quietly while watching for wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos.
Be sure to bring along your binoculars or camera if you enjoy a spot of birdwatching. You may spot a variety of birdlife, such as yellow-tailed black cockatoos, or a wildflower display, with purple kunzea and white-flowered tea tree on lower slopes.
