This easy walk in Yarrangobilly area in Kosciuszko National Park starts from Thermal Pool Trail car park and leads to the ruins of Henry Harris’s Glory Hole Farm. Stop at the picnic area along the way for lunch. Let us begin by acknowledging the Wiradjuri people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
