*** SATURDAY MORNING CANYON IS FULL ***

*** SATURDAY-SUNDAY COXS RIVER CAMPING REMAINS OPEN - JUST TURN UP ***

The "Christmas Dinner Walk" is an annual SUBW tradition dating back many decades and has become one of the most popular events on the SUBW calendar. Usually a large group of the wider SUBW community attend!

It's a weekend of relaxation and pre-Christmas socializing on the Coxs River. The walk in takes only about an hour, which means there is no problem loading up our packs with fine food and drink, plus lilos or other watercraft for playing around in the nearby pools and rapids of the granite gorge of this part of the Coxs River. On a hot summer’s afternoon this is definitely the place to be. And after an afternoon at the riverside we retire to the nearby campfire in the evening for pre-Christmas festivities.

Many people have done the trip before and know the way in and have their own transport. These people can just turn up any time they like.

New members are also very welcome. For new members or anyone requiring transport arrangements or anyone wanting to walk in with the main group please sign up for the trip like any other SUBW trip and get in touch with me regarding transport. I will organise cars and a group to walk in together for anyone wanting to join the group.

It's also likely that many of us will do a canyon on the morning of Saturday the 16th, then head down to the river in the afternoon. This canyon is suitable for beginners and we will teach you how to abseil before doing the one abseil required in this canyon.

We spend the night camping by the river, then head back out sometime on the Sunday. Exit time is flexible.

Full details, equipment list and joining instructions will be emailed to those who sign up for the trip on the SUBW website. Former members and anyone coming independently can just turn up any time on the Saturday.

Please book in this SUBW event into your calendars! All are welcome.
