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(NEW!!!) 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

Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPhotography | A trip that has a strong focus on encouraging people to capture photographs.(DRAFT - do not publish yet) 11km walking track is near Wisemans Ferry and follows a steep mountain ridge through lush gullies, past clear running creeks in Dharug National Park.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
