Central Blue Mountains (Dunphy)
Mt Wilson 8930-1N
800 - 900 metres
Jungaburra Brook runs from Watertrough Hill & flows into Koombanda Brook, cutting a deep gorge between Jungaburra Ridge & Wilkinson Hill.
Jungaburra Brook runs underground for some distance, filtered by deep sand. Upstream of the filter the water is dark & murky after rain. Downstream the water is usually crystal clear.
It is a beautiful creek to walk along with many lovely pools & moss covered rocks.
There is a 4 metre drop that requires abseiling or hand over hand. A 30 metre tape or rope is needed because there are no anchor points close by. There is a route around the drop on the western side under the cliffs.
It is possible to climb up onto Kamarah Ridge via a climber's pass near the abseil point.
