To get to Shepherds Lookout, start at the parking area three kilometres from the last traffic island on Stockdill Drive.
Walk through Woodstock Nature Reserve to Shepherd’s Lookout for an impressive view along the Murrumbidgee. The return walk is only 1.2km; an easy 45 minutes.
Look out for the ACT border, three kilometres downstream. It’s marked by power lines over the river.
Dogs are allowed on a lead.
