Cox river from Dunphys campground

This was my first time co-leading with Aidan in a refresher trip. This year, we were going to the Jenolan river through Breakfast creek. Some of us camped at Dunphy’s campground the day before. Although it was a lively night with earsplitting laughter from one of the other groups, we were able to enjoy the beautiful sky and saw some shooting stars before heading off to bed. The morning…

[Canyoning/Bushwalking] Canyon Exploration [Mon]

From the start we had a couple of different options for a Monday adventure. Both were somewhat exploratory, but I was fairly certain one would be wet.

I met Olivia in Lithgow so she wouldn’t have to brave the dirt roads and met James up at the Bungleboori Campground which looked quite a bit tidier after the Clean Up Australia Day efforts – there were even some ppl camping there! Pooling into my car we headed down the Glowworm Tunnel Rd. To flesh…

Mt-Not-D’Arcy via T3 Track (Colo RiverWollemi NP)

I drove up to Mountain Lagoon with Laura and Wentao, where we met Michael. We then piled into my car and drove to the start of T3 track, with the hike beginning at 9AM. We headed off down T3 track surrounded by mist, which blocked most of the views. T3 track was overgrown in parts and Michael was so keen to get immersed in scrub that he immediately walked off the main track to bathe himself in it. Once he’d…
