I had itchy feet again and wanted to get out to activate a summit a tiny bit further afield than VK1 easy walk ups, Mt Gillamatong near Braidwood in regional NSW seemed to fit the bill nicely.
A warm easy 1 hour drive east of Canberra and 10m from down town Braidwood - Gillamatong as looks rather imposing from the base. We approached from the west near the local water treatment facility. This apparently is not the way others have in the past, however is the easier of the East / West approach options.
Progress on the dirt track was momentarily halted by the appearance of a rather slippery character - a rather well fed Red Belly Black Snake quickly moved off in search of a less disturbed hideout and we passed on.
