Walks Calendar

Our next calendar (covering Feb-May 2020) is currently being finalised.  As almost 80% of the Blue Mountains National Park has been burnt and is closed, we may be a bit creative with our walks on this calendar!

Sunday, 1 December     T3 Track to the Colo River, Wollemi NP     Leader: Jocelyn
H, 5-6 hours return, 6km..
Start from Mountain Lagoon and descend into the valley to the gorgeous Colo River. A long descent/ascent via zigzags towards a beautiful section of the river where we can spend some time before returning.

Sat, 7 Dec - Sun, 8 Dec   Beginner's Overnight walk & camp - Ingar Picnic Campground
Leader: Jocelyn  M, 20km return. On Saturday we walk along the Ingar Picnic Road (closed to cars) at Wentworth Falls to the beautiful waterhole where we camp overnight and walk back the next day.  Perfect for those new to overnight camps as the walk is not difficult, but good for everyone as it's a lovely campground and swimming hole.

Sunday, 8 December    Hanging Rock, Blackheath                  Leader: Sharron
E, approx 7km return.  Walk along mainly firetrail to the iconic Hanging Rock with fantastic gorge views along Burramoko Ridge and the Grose wilderness.  The pace will be easy, especially for beginners or people who don't want to hurry.

Saturday, 14 December        Paradise Pool, Linden             Leader: Erin
E, 2-3km return walk. This pool is one mostly known by locals and it will be special to visit it.  Let's hope for a hot day so we can jump in!

Saturday, 21 December     Kamay Botany Bay National Park         Leader: Sue G.
M, 11km. La Perouse is located near the northern headland to Kamay Botany Bay.  The Henry Head & Cape Banks circuit starts & finishes at La Perouse.  Expect to see stunning views, military bunkers & remnant coastal bush. This walk is really a surprise! We take a detour to 'The Coast Hospital Cemetery'. The cemetery contains headstones that date back to the early & mid 1880s.  There is a chance of a swim at the end of the walk.

Saturday, 4 January    Wentworth Falls - Conservation Hut to Darwins Walk via the Falls
Leader:  Anne   E-M, 8km, approx 3-4 hours, 150m ascent/descent.  Starting at the Conservation Hut in the afternoon we will follow the Overcliff Undercliff tracks to Wentworth Falls before heading up the serene Darwins Walk. Following the walk we head over to the lake for a picnic and swim....should be a good start to 2020!

Sunday, 5 January          Palm Beach to Narrabeen (along Coastrek route)  Leader: Jocelyn
H, approx 20km.  Follow the Coastrek route along the roads, paths, beaches with views and swims. We will get the bus to Palm Beach so we just have to walk one way.

Saturday, 11 January    Lockleys Pylong track at night (Leura)   Leader: Sharron
E, approx 7km return.  Rescheduled after being snowed-out on the last calendar. Walk out while watching the sunset, pause for a cuppa and return under the stars.  This is a spectacular walk during the day but at night the sky is a showstopper.  CANCELLED DUE TO FIRES

Saturday, 18 January      Wentworth Pass, Vera & Hippocrene Falls    Leader: Jocelyn
H, a loop walk from Wentworth Falls deep into the valley and along the little used pass tracks and to both beautiful waterfalls, then ascending up Valley of the Waters.  Beautiful lush area, but tracks are eroded and muddy.  CANCELLED
