Description:
For safety reasons, this trip's itinerary is weather dependant. So, it can be changed to 7th August16.

You should be fit to, fully, enjoy this trip.

We will be doing River Caves then Deep Pass canyons, respectively. Meeting point at Bell railway station at 8am. Both canyons are medium/easy grade for bush a walkers.

In Deep Pass, you will be walking on artistically hanging timber logs, above water, with safe permanent hand lines. So, they give you amazing feeling like you are walking on top of water. It is the only canyon in the region offering that. As usually, it offers a lot of fun and beautiful scenery for photos.

The River Caves is a short but spectacular canyon in the upper reaches of Budgary Creek. Take camera with you..

From Bell, it is about 1 hour of bumpy dirt road driving. People with 4wd’s, or high clearance Awd’s will be given preference. So, anyone can catch a train to Bell station, then get in a pre-arranged 4wd car.

If catching train, please make sure to stay in the last 2 carriage, and also you must remind to the train driver to stop at Bell.

The essential items to bring are: head torches, strong backpack, foods, 2 litter of water, decent hiking or strong shoes, spare dry shoes, extra dry sock and pants to change. Cold weather clothing and waterproof jacket & pants in case of unexpected showers, or slipping into very cold water.

Aldi stores are selling cold weather clothes.

You might be walking in cold water up to knee high, for about 1 minute. In my previous trip, 3rd July, with some snow and ice, 4 people in my trip had preferred to walk bare feet in cold water, in Acoustic canyon.

To obtain the essential equipment for this trip if you don’t own any, please log into SUBW's website, and go to "walks programme", then, sign on to the trip, namely "Gear Night Thursday 5-6pm”, and write to the gear officer what gear you want.

I own several gears sets. Let me know if you need to borrow my owned gears.

At a moment, we have 1 x 4wd, and we may need 1 more 4wd. A car pool will be organised, and , please, contribute money to the owner/driver.

You must wear safety devices on the trip whenever you are asked to do so.

Your name n telephone will be listed for the purpose of organising car pool. Any objection please let me know. People with cars who are willing to take others will be given preference to join the trip.

More details after signing up.
