The walk will include the Christmas lunch for SWAG walkers, which we will have in Timbrell Park, adjacent to Livvi’s Cafe. You can bring your own lunch, or buy a panino or burger from the cafe - and a coffee, of course. Livvi’s is operated by a charity employing disabled people, deserving of our patronage. There is an opportunity early in the walk to purchase a treat for morning tea at Pasticceria Tamborrino, and an opportunity at the end of the walk to have a coffee or traditional gelato (pistachio is highly recommended) at Papa’s or San Silvestro in Haberfield. When registering, please indicate if you wish to contribute $10 towards a slice of Italian cake and prosecco at the lunch break - if enough say yes, leader will arrange for those agreeing to participate (minimum of 10 required).

|16 Dec, Sat 8:00AM||Deep Pass Canyon and Split Rock|
|(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) Deep Pass Canyon is quite possibly the easiest wet canyon you can do and you can normally manage to stay dry for most of of this trip if you are agile. Even then you'll only normally get wet up to your waist.
There are no abseils but there are quite a few places where you need to haul yourself up short length ropes. Along the way you'll encounter many small and stunning waterfalls and cascades where a swim is certainly worthwhile experiencing! Before the canyon we will do a short sidetrip to the impressive Split Rock which has some interesting tunnels within its imposing structure. Rock scrambling and slippery bits.

|6 Jan, Sat 7:30AM||Glenbrook Gorge – Portal View Lookout – Tunnel View Lookout – Tunnel View Track – Glenbrook Creek|
|Glenbrook Gorge is truly a spectacular place and within its imposing sheer walls is a watercourse of great beauty with many swimmable pools and cascades to savour on a warm summer's sunny day! The last time I did this walk was in August when it was too cold to swim but hopefully we will be able to go for many a dip as we make our way down the gorge. The trip route/plan is to climb up to Portal Lookout and descend via Tunnel View Track. However, if it's going to be a hot day I'll simply return via the way we came, reversing our way back up the gorge. Rock hopping.
