|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.

|Grade:3/6||Length||15km||300m||Southern Sydney Branch|
|(NEW!!!) 11km walking track is near Wisemans Ferry and follows a steep mountain ridge through lush gullies, past clear running creeks in Dharug National Park. This rough track will really get your heart racing with several steep climbs along the way. 11km walking track is an exhilarating challenge for adventure seekers.
This beautiful circuit walk goes through a range of dry and wet forest along the valley, and offers some great views. There are plenty of grass trees along the way to add to the scenery and the creek crossings are very picturesque. The side trip to a large Aboriginal engravings site alone is worth the entry price! At this time of the year, there is an abundance of wild flowers. Steep and slippery sections

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!

|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.
