Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longCape Pinnacle juts out high above the Wolgan Valley and is truly spectacular from any angle. But this fabulous feature of the Gardens of Stone is only part of the story, as getting there involves walking along a ridge of stunning pagodas, which beg to be climbed. This is a location few people go to, so come along and discover what you're missing out on! Rock scrambling and off-track walking.

Anton
Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPhotography | A trip that has a strong focus on encouraging people to capture photographs.(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) Point Cameron is a great destination, but the journey there is quite astonishing. This is a long, at times challenging walk through some of the best scenery the Gardens of Stone has to offer. First we must trudge through a kilometre or two of thick scrub, but our payoff is an extended cliff and pagoda top walk high above the eastern side of the Capertee Valley. On our way, we will see Jamison Pass, the Plain of Shards, Ngamperi Rock (the original Nipple Rock) and the Pondage Canyon. Time permitting, we can also drop in on Stargate Tunnel on our return. Off-track.

Grade:5/6 Length 7km  300m Sydney Branch
Mark G.
Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longThere is an impressive ridge line that parallels the Bicentennial Trail between the Cape Horn ft and the Moffitts ft which I've admired on many occasions whilst walking along the BT. I've always thought about exploring this incredible looking ridge, and now's the time! This is an exploratory walk but you can expect to encounter the usual suspects, such as many pagodas, numerous slots, overhangs and caves and any of the other geological formations you would see within the Gardens of Stone National Park. If you are the adventurous type then this walk should appeal to you. Rock scrambling and off-track.
