Don't worry about your waist line. A few leaders would put on walks of various lengths and difficulties before and after the feast. Examples are as below:
1. Walk from Cowan to Crosslands Reserve
2. Walk from Mt. Kurring-gai Station
3. Walk from Crosslands Reserve to Berowra Station
4. Walk from Crosslands Reserve to Mt. Kurring-gai Station
Or you can simply drive to the Reserve.  Distance from your home is not an excuse. You can camp there even!!
The picnic is self-catered. Bring a plate to share. You can choose to make a note donation instead of bringing a plate. You can do both as money raised will go to NPA. Please mention if you will be bringing a plate as we don't want to end up with just Money but no food.

In short, having the time of your life! Add to this the real chance of bagging a wild trout and some lovely campsites and you have all the attributes for an amazing experience worthy of saluting the Australia Day weekend in style! The walk involves walking down into the deep via Megalith ridge,establishing a basecamp at a loverly grassy campsite then exploring with day packs the Kowmung river upstream into the Morong Deep and downstream too which has a completely different character. Lots of rock scrambling.

Then we travel down past the Great Lakes of Adelaide, Meston and Junction to the interestingly named Never Never and the Mersey River which we follow through to the Overland Track at Harnett Falls. From this point we go south then north into Pine Valley for 2 days of magic, climbing the Acropolis, the Labyrinth and other scenic gems. Finally, there is an easy walk down to Lake St Clair for a ferry ride to Cynthia Bay and a pickup with bushwalkers transport back to Hobart. Rock scrambling and a bit off-track walking in the Never Never, potential extreme weather.

Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Swim | A trip that involves swimmingWalk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPublic Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) A lovely pack walk on the Thorsbourne Trail on Hinchinbrook Island in Queensland. This is one of Queensland’s Great Walks and is a wonderful mixture of rainforest and beaches. Some great campsites; some nice swimming holes; mostly short days; with at least one 2-night stop, all make this a really terrific walk. There is great demand for the limited walk permits at this time of the year so we need to book close to the possible one-year in advance. Seven days (6 nights) of actual walking. A day of snorkeling on the reef prior to the walk is also planned.
