Apparently the obvious road southwards in the Brindabella valley (on West side of river) was never gazetted and council doesnt pay for maintenance. You will find locked gates and aggro this way.
There are some forestry roads a bit further west (Tumut side). Check Google maps etc.
But from Sydney area very likely faster via Cooma?
