Hume and Hovell Walking Track

In 1824, explorers Hamilton Hume and William Hovell set out on a voyage through unchartered land in an attempt to find a path from Sydney to Australia’s southern coast. Their path is now, more or less, the Hume Highway – although walkers on the epic New South Wales leg do not have to walk beside the road. The track is 440 kilometres, starting at Cooma Cottage in Yass, and travels to Albury through forest and farmland, skirting the Great Dividing Range. There are basic campsites and picnic facilities along the track.
