Snow can fall anywhere in the park but is most common
particularly on the Bimberi and Brindabella Ranges. If snow
condition permits, during winter the Mt Franklin Road is open, and
the areas beyond are good for cross-country skiing. There is no
facilities for downhill skiing. During winter, the Brindabella and
Mt Franklin Roads can be hazardous and care should be taken, as help
is not always available for vehicles which run into trouble.
Unsealed roads are narrow and can be slippery when wet or frosty and
at times can be closed because of snow, floods, and Total Fire Bans.
Bushwalking will take you into the remote parts of Namadgi where
you can experience the full beauty of the park. If you do venture
into the remote areas you should record the details of your trip
into the bushwalking registers located at the visitor centre and
elsewhere in the park.
Waterproof and warm clothing is a must at any
time of the year as weather can change unexpectedly. You should also
take a map and compass if you venture off the marked tracks. Camping
is permitted only in the upper Cotter River Catchment, being
prohibited in the lower and middle portions of the Cotter River
