Branch
General Community Event
Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(NEW!!!) NPWS is conducting a series of guided tours of this historic fortification in Sydney Harbour National Park. We'll explore the rarely opened Beehive Casemate as part of this tour at Middle Head, near Mosman. The Beehive Casement battery was built in 1872 as part of the outer line of defence for Sydney Harbour. Normally all you'll see of the battery are three 3.7m x 2.1m-high openings in a cliff face. On this tour you'll go beneath the cliffs of Obelisk Bay, Sydney Harbour to view the inside of the fortification. You'll also gain an insight into what the soldiers did for entertainment during World War I. It's a good idea to wear sturdy walking shoes, and bring sunscreen, a hat, snacks, drinking water and a torch.

After the walk, return to your lodge or drive home (or keep walking, if you are doing the AAWT!)

Please arrive between 7:30 and 8:15am for an 8:30am start. Collect yellow vests and sign in. Re-group at Rawsons Pass 11:15 am to 11:45am, rather than head on up at your own pace (better for photos).

Canyon | A trip through a canyon (a gully surrounded by tall cliffs).Public Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.Birrabang Canyon/Grose Valley Lookout. A very pretty canyon with lots of crayfish. No abseils but wet feet guaranteed. Volleys/sneakers recommended. Gaiters useful. Mostly off-track with some scrambling and a short ledge sidle where you wet everything if you fall in. A magnificent lunch spot with superb views into the Grose Valley. A steep scrambly descent into the canyon, slippery rocks and some jump downs but generally nothing too dramatic. A steepish climb out.

Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long60 Best walks | This is one of the NPA's 60 best walks.An interesting walk that takes in many huts and highlights of the Kosciuszko region. From our starting point at Mt Selwyn we travel via the following huts 4 Mile Dam, Broken Dam, Brooks, Mackeys, O'Keefes, Derschkos and Round Mountain. Camping near many of these as they offer shelter when the weather turns foul and good flat campsites. The highlight of the trip is climbing Mt Jagungal from Okeefes Hut, but the various frost hollow plains and what are usually spectacular floral displays are also worth coming along for! Contact leader for more details. Off-track walking in parts.
