|7 Dec, Sat 8:00AM||Upper Wollangambe Canyon|
|The justifiably famous Wollangambe Canyon is a delight especially as we float through its wonderfully sculptured narrow confines on our lilos admiring the spectacular scenery including a short detour up Crayfish Canyon. There is no abseils in this canyon but being able to swim is important and a lilo/portable raft is essential. Rock scrambling and deep water so lilo is necessary.

The lodge has a commercial style kitchen and all the rooms are twin share with ensuites. People coming on this trip often cook in groups as it is easier, practical and more fun but not compulsory.

Some off-track walking and rock scrambling on some of the walks, and potential for extreme weather.

|Butterbox Canyon is a spectacular easy canyon to enjoy as it requires no abseils and only a few shortish swims so a wetsuit is definitely required. A wonderful watery trip on a hot January weekend not far from Blackheath. Rock scrambling, cold water and a few short swims, so a wetsuit is necessary.

|25-27 Jan, Sat (08:00AM)-Mon (15:00PM)||The Mighty Morong Deep|
|If you want the ultimate river trip you simply can't go past the mighty Morong Deep! This is an incredibly beautiful section of the upper Kowmung River populated by numerous cascades, cool refreshing giant swimming pools and slabs of pink granite which is perfect for scrambling over, sunbaking on and allowing perfect grip as you explore your way down the river. 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 starts by following Morong Falls down into the Deep and ends by ascending Megalith Ridge back to the Kanangra Plateau. Lots of rock scrambling.

|8-9 Feb, Sat (08:00AM)-Sun (15:00PM)||Boomerang Pass – Quiera clearing|
|Boomerang Pass - Ettrema Creek - Sentry Box Canyon - Myall Creek - Quiera clearing. The wilder untamed region of the Morton National Park is the Ettrema wilderness, an area not nearly as well trodden as the more familiar Buddawangs section and because of this wilder side you largely have the place to yourself. We will follow the supremely beautiful Ettrema Creek along its twisted route with plenty of time to swim in any number of the enticing pools along the way. On our second day we ascend Myall Creek which has an abundance of stunning cascades before a shortish scrub bash back to the Touga Road. Lots of rock hopping and rock scrambling on the last days climb up Myall Creek.

|(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) Walls of Jerusalem to Lake St Clair, Tasmania. This is my favourite long walk that I have ever done and on my 5th visit to the superlative Walls of Jerusalem, we will explore the many wonderful aspects that this area has to offer over several days. 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.
