From there we will head North to 3 Poles locality and the Orchid track to the Northern boundary of the reserve.
We will head off track from the ridgeline to Cooma Creek. A stroll along the creek past the sewage works will give us a different view of the Reserve before heading back to the ford at Mulach Street where platypus have been spotted.
