Access issues inherited from Wingello

In 2013 National Parks erected a locked gate 200m from the fire fighters memorial and placed several very large boulders on the road at the entrance of the memorial. Park in the designated car park to avoid blocking the gate or being blocked in by other users.

From Sydney: Wingello is about 1 hour from the M7/M5 intersection and the crag itself is about 20 minutes out of Wingello (depending on your car). Wingello is best reached (from Sydney) by busting straight down the Hume Hwy to the turn off just after the Paddy’s River bridge. You can also go through Bundanoon but its probably a bit slower. From Macca’s on the Freeway its 11.5km to the Wingello turn off, and another 8km from there to the Wingello Railway Crossing. Reset your speedo on the railway line or at the shop .

From Canberra:

Reset Speedo at NSW Border on Federal Highway. The BP at Marulan is 110kms or 1hr drive. Wingello turn off is 124.7km or 1hr 10 mins. The railway crossing at Wingello is 131.6km or 1 hr 15mins.

Approach

From the parking area, continue on through the gate for 100m to the fireman's memorial. From there, take the blocked road on the left down the steep hill.

For the Western areas: (Super Fun Happy Wall, etc) continue down this to the bottom of the road. Find a small cairn marking the start of the track on the right side of the rock platform, and follow the marking tape, ropes and faint path. After about 100m you will reach some fixed ropes and a rung ladder, it's about 6m to the ground between Candy Deck and Nubigena Wall.

For the eastern areas: take a fading track on the right, about 200m down the steep road from the memorial. Follow this track for 150m till a small cairn marks the track decent down on the left, follow over a some rock drops and down to a gully.
