|1 May, Sat 8:31AM||Firefly Point via Galaxies Gully|
|A fascinating walk full of pagodas to climb, overhangs and gullies to investigate and all within a short distance of Newnes. Lots of possibilities for exploring so a sense of adventure is a requisite! I've graded this walk a 5 due to the off-track nature and because of the rock scrambling. Rock scrambling/off-track walking.

|22 May, Sat||Witches Watch, Hecates Cauldron and Tara Point|
|Park the vehicles at around GR 306 175 on the branch road off the Bicentennial National Trail. Follow the Great Dividing Range north to Gordian Knot and then to Witches Watch, a spectacular lookout above Hecates Cauldron. From here, descend into the Cauldron and explore it underneath the cliff lines and also above, amidst “the bubbles”. Visit the Tower of Hope and other attractions. Descend into the headwaters of Baal Bone Creek, cross the valley and climb up through Tara Slot onto Tara Point. More amazing views. From here, move up to the ridge and re-connect with the vehicles. Scrambling and exposure.
