BENDETHERA

 

So you thought with Gavan moving interstate, a Club trip favourite may be no more. Well, you thought wrong!

Ivars Karklins continues the tradition by leading the extended weekender to beautiful Bendethera in the Deua National Park.

 

The main trip will start on Thursday in Moruya before heading into Bendethera to set up camp for three nights.

For those able to join the trip on Thursday, camper trailers will be welcome. Members are welcome to sign up for the normal weekend trip where we will meet at Braidwood on Saturday morning, though camper trailers will not be permitted on the tracks we will be using for Saturday joiners.

 

The trip will explore a variety of steep local tracks with spectacular scenery and lots of native wildlife.

 

Contact Ivars for more information and to book.

COX RIVER / GIBRALTAR ROCK / CAVES 2 CAVES

 

You have just bought your Range Rover/Land Rover and the popular “4wd treks close to Sydney” book and are keen to tackle some tracks. Join Rob Jones and I in late August as we tackle three tracks on one weekend!

 

Starting at Little Hartley on Saturday morning, we will make our way to Cox River for a leisurely stroll to the swing bridge, a drive up to Gibraltar Rock in the early afternoon, before arriving at Jenolan Caves for check-in and early happy hour.

 

After dinner, optional nocturnal activities include a cave night tour, continuation of happy hour, or relax and do nothing.

 

Rob Jones will take over on Sunday, leading the Caves to Caves leg, with notable stops including Kanangra Walls, the Kowmung River crossing, Mt Werong before finishing at Wombeyan Caves in the mid-afternoon.
