Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Cancelled) This activity will comply with social distancing practices. Starting at the location where West Parade (Hill Top) becomes Wattle Ridge Road, we will wander aimlessly like hobos down the abandoned railway track down and through Australia's deepest railway cutting. Once through the cutting and assuming there are no trains we will make our way up to the monument. From the monument, we will make our way eastward down a fire trail for a while. At a secret location known to no one including the leader, we will traverse cross country down and meet up with the track into the bottom end of the Cave Creek. As the bridge was burnt out during our recent fires we will clamber across to a very special place. Backtracking we will rise up and around to the entrance of tunnel creek followed by some cross country eastward bound along a very pleasant ridge that will offer some very nice views. From here we will cross country westward to the Cave Creek car park. A short walk along the road will get us back to the starting place. If there is enough energy and interest we can add a short 3km circuit that takes the railway cutting to Hill Top village and back via a trail. This is a strictly social distancing walk.

A few of you asked about this year so here it is. The line up not quite as good as last year but still some great acts here. (Particularly McClymonts, Wolf brothers, Brand, Cox, Lawrence, Barnes…). Take your own picnic chair.
So my plan would be to car camp at Kangaroo Valley on Friday night (Glenmack), enjoy a meal around the fire, sleep in and cook up a good breaky on Saturday morning. Drive to Berry (19km). Attend Big Country (last year went from 12pm lunchtime until 11pm), head back to Glenmack. Sunday can walk around beautiful Kangaroo Valley and if interested hire canoe for the paddle from Hampden Bridge to Bendeela (5km) or head up to Fitzroy Waterfall and walk the Rim Tracks.
Cost is $95 for Big Country, $45 for canoe hire (90 for double canoe). Includes pick up to get back to Kangaroo Valley. Fitzroy Falls free. View

For this trip to go ahead all depends on what plays out over the next 7 months with the current health situation. Payment for the rooms not required until later in the year closer to the arrival date. Rock scrambling on some walks.

Some of the highlights include the incredibly beautiful Morong Deep, a place of Olympic sized pools, multiple cascades and pink granite formations, Rudders Rift and the 5-star campsite of Hatchers Hollow with its hectares of grassy expanse and the possibility of spotting a platypus.

Accommodation | An activity that involves an overnight stay, using hard-roofed accommodation such as a cabin, hut or hotel.Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Date Changed) It’s the 22nd anniversary for this trip and it will be a trip like no other given the situation in Kosciuszko NP and surrounds. Some of the regular walks have been heavily impacted by fire, some Snowy huts and other infrastructure destroyed but others not, so we’ll need to carefully select which areas to visit. Importantly we will have the opportunity to survey and learn what’s happening with the recovery of the landscape by then while offering support to the impacted communities of the region. Base at caravan park with camping, powered site or cabin options. Joint trip with Illawarra Ramblers, combined limit applies. Contact leader for more trip detail. Limit: 16. View

Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Swim | A trip that involves swimmingWalk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPublic Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.(Date Changed) A lovely pack walk on the Thorsbourne Trail on Hinchinbrook Island in Queensland. This is one of Queensland’s Great Walks and is a wonderful mixture of rainforest and beaches. Some great campsites; some nice swimming holes; mostly short days; with at least one 2-night stop, all make this a really terrific walk. There is great demand for the limited walk permits at this time of the year so we need to book close to the possible one-year in advance. Seven days (6 nights) of actual walking. A day of snorkeling on the reef prior to the walk is also planned.
