    When we travelled back over a week ago, there were roo mobs all the way from Jindy to Liverpool outskirts in the paddocks next to the road or on the roadside in the middle of the day. Never, ever, seen so many roos over the full distance before.

    Man could Team Bears use that for a few weeks.And with root rake could do a bit of stump pulling too.

    MR.T could float it down to Mt Margaret for the weekends ....

    Just imagine if Team Bears had those funds squandered of the Iconic Walk..with its glossy brochures .....we could have a dozer ,operator and offsider plus fitters all operating such a piece of machinery.

    A bit over rated. I first went opening weekend 1979 on my way to Thredbo. Then I next went in April 2009 and was not fussed. Heatherbraes Pies near Marulan are just as good if not better.

    All true. I actually did not attest that Bemboka pie shop was still good. Not been since 2010.

    Heatherbrae pies are crap IMO.
    Similar to trappers.
    I think Bredbo are better.
    I rate Kuma higher

    Thanks @skifree
    I did find this one but thought it verged too much towards the pie end of the spectrum. I’ll use it though for future reference

    perhaps extinction happening

    Should I be working on more little wombats?

    Anyone trying to take out a wombat is living dangerously.

    I've heard a few people rave about gumtree pies in yack & bright. Best they've ever eaten ... Finally tried them last weekend. They are above average but not that great.

    Went to Parkers in Rutherglen yeserday and they are still fantastic. The parcel with chicken, ham & mustard is best of all.
    Swifts Creek bakery is great for more standard offerings. Chilli pie especially.

    Of the NSW pies I've had, hayden's had been the best.
