Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPublic Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.The walk from Cowan to Brooklyn is a very popular walk. The nearby walk to Taffys Rock leaves the main track, and is much more secluded, with better views. The walk is good in winter as it mainly follows ridges, and is reasonably exposed to the sun. The track is well marked as far as the turnoff to Taffys Rock. From there it is likely to be marked by cairns, but there are no official markers, Steep and Slippery sections. Some clambering

Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) All intending walkers must be double vaccinated. This walk will take in some of the Buddawangs most spectacular walking routes and features and will be a walk you won't want to miss out on! Starting from Wog Wog campground we make our way past the following scenic locations - Mt Corang, Corang Arch, Burrumbeet Brook, Mt Tarn, Mt Haughton, Styles Creek, Hidden Valley, The Vines, and the Endrick river, to name a few! Hidden in these locations are comfortable camp caves, stunning grassy campsites, pristine watercourses and indigenous art sites, all worth exploring. I lead this walk 4 years ago and it proved enormously popular and I think once we are able to regain our freedom again, after all the lockdowns, this trip will be just the ticket to refresh the senses! Might be some overgrown tracks to be encountered.
