Pryors Hut
Pryors Hut

Saturday 13 October: Corin Dam to Pryors Hut/ Gingera – return L/M

Follow Stockyard Spur from Corin Dam to Pryors Hut followed by a further climb up to Mt Gingera. Return the same way down the hill to the cars. Trip Around 20 km and 1000 m climb. Map: Corin Dam. Leaders: Nathan and Edwina. Bookings to Edwina please. Transport: ~$15 per person. Limit: 12.


13–14 October: Morgan and Half Moon – S–M/M

From the locked gate at Gurrangorambla Creek, follow fire trails to Oldfields Hut then Lone Pine Fire trail to the saddle between Murray and Morgan. Depending on party inclination, either camp there or proceed over Morgan to camp at what I remember as a delightful saddle between Morgan and Half Moon. From the top of Half Moon, return directly to the cars next day with plenty of time for diversions either before arriving or in the fleshpots of Adaminaby. The trip barely scrapes into the Medium categories. Saturday is ‘E’ terrain, and Sunday is ‘S’ distance. I remember Sunday’s terrain as open grassy valleys intermingled with hills covered in trees and very open scrub. This is not inconsistent with Google Earth but there is a small caution in that my memories may have been smoothed by the passing of about 25 years and two major bushfires. Morgan in particular provides panoramic views. Leader: Alan V. Maps: Rules Point and Rendezvous Creek. Transport: ~$160 per car.

Sunday 14 October: Smokers Gap, Billy Billy Rocks, Fishing Gap cross-over – M/R

The parties meet for lunch. We haven’t done this for a while so scrub regrowth might be a factor. Maps: Tidbinbilla, Corin Dam Leaders: Jenny & Rob Horsfield 6231 4535(h). Transport: $30 per car + park entry.

Tuesday 16 October: Mt Budawang and Currowan Falls – L/R

Retrace our steps for 1 km to ~E 716 N 750, down a fairly clear ridge to cross the source of Currowan Creek, then over a scrubby ridge to rejoinCurrowan Creek at around E 693 N 760. Descend the creek (slow) through patches of magnificent tree ferns to the top of Currowan Falls, then NE to Budawang Road and back to the cars. Main ascents and descents are 400 metres up to Mt Budawang, 600 metres down to the falls. Patches of heavy scrub.7–8 hours actual walking. Map: Braidwood. Leader: Linda Groom, 02 6281 4917.

Follow a track going north east to a crossing on Punch Bowl Creek. Climb a steep spur going east of south for about 1 km to a summit above the White Horse Rocks. Lunch and some looking around time can be spent here. The return is south of east to the car park on Smokers Trail. The distance is about 5.5 km. and 500 m climb with some areas of thick scrub.

20–21 October: Buckenbowra Wilderness – M/R partly X

Buckenbowra
Buckenbowra

A walk to explore the ridges, beautiful forest, creeks and possibly small gorges in Monga National Park. We will park near Penance Grove (15 minutes from Kings Highway), walk 3 level km along the now closed River Forest Road, climb 380 metres in 5 km on the Boundary Fire Trail, descend 700 metres in 3.5 km on the ridge from 64E 503N to 67E 493N to an unnamed creek. Previous experience in this area suggests this ridge will be dryish and fairly open. The creek has a couple of sections that look on Google Earth like small gorges; we expect to find a rain forest campsite before or between the gorge-like sections. On Sunday we have the option of returning via a creek tributary (in which we have previously found lovely rain forest) from 681E 507N or by ridges or by the steep Turtle Fire Trail. Expect some scrub and loose and slippery rocks. Fuel stoves only. Maps: Monga, Araluen. Leader: Linda Groom , 02 6281 4917 Transport: TBA Limit: 8.

The walk is in a preserved forest area in the Tallaganda State Forest, 20 km west of Jerangle. We will visit Jerrabattgulla Creek and a tributary. The walk is exploratory but the leader recalls a quick visit 40 years ago and the creek filled with giant tree ferns. Start at ~Jerangle 253 318 and follow an old fire trail before heading down to Jerrabattgulla Creek. Walk 2 km down the creek to a tributary at Krawaree 283301, which we then follow north for 1.5 km to ~Krawaree 281 317, before heading back to the cars. If the creeks are too difficult to follow, we will vary the route. A couple of very steep – and probably scrubby – ascents totalling ~600m. Maps: Jerangle, Krawarree. Leader: Ian W. Transport: ~200 km return. Limit: 8.

Then NW across a saddle with about 600 m of slow, thick scrub and N along a ridge of moderate scrub to Serenity Rocks at E732965, N 6069372.

Sunday 18 November 2012: Broom Clearing 20th year at Cotter Hut

The Club’s long-term environmental project aimed at removal of this invasive species from the Upper Cotter area will reach a significant milestone this year. In addition to the removal exercise we will celebrate the occasion with Parks and Conservation staff. Each year Club members go to the area around the Cotter Hut and locate and clear any new broom plants that can be found. The seeds of this species can stay in the soil for well over 20 years and each plant can produce thousands of seeds. Our contribution has involved searching the area to locate infestations, removal by lopping or digging and detailed mapping. You will have the opportunity to travel to the Upper Cotter by vehicle and spend the day in a remote part of Namadgi. No special skills needed. Map: Rendezvous Creek. Leader: John T. Transport: $12

Descend to Ettrema via Myall Creek and exit via Transportation Spur, with a possible side trip up Jones Creek. This is a classic weekend trip in what many regard as the finest scenery and walking area in our region. It is an opportunity for those who are reasonably comfortable rock hopping and on steep slopes to extend their walking experience. The trip is low on the ‘M’ distance but thoroughly rates the ‘R’ grading. Leader: Alan V. Map: Touga. Transport: ~$130 per car. Limit: 8.

8 (Fri)–10 February 2013: Boolijah, Danjera and Bundundah Creeks – M/R–X

This area East of Ettrema is accessed via the Yarramunmun Fire trail. On each of the trips CBC has made there the reaction has been ‘we should go more often’. Details are tba, but given how long it has been since I was last there it should be graded X. Leader: Alan V. Map: Sassafras. Transport: tba.

Late Feb–early March, 2013: Western Arthur Range, Frenchmans Cap, Tasmania – M/M–R

Two of the best walks in the different topography, forests of Tasmania’s south-west; come for either. The first skylines the intricate maze of a glaciated ridge, while the Cap is a rewarding walk to a lonely quartzite fang also with wonderful views; we’ll also see how the Dick Smith – initiated bypass around the ‘sodden Lodden’ is going. Contact leader by mid-November for details. Joint activity with NPA. Leader: Rupert Barnett, 6242 5241

26 June 2013 to 20 July 2013: Kakadu – M/R/X/W
