Backyard Explorer and Blue Waterholes

Backyard Explorer and Blue Waterholes

Activity Description:

This trip is currently full. Sorry, no more wait list bookings. Thursday – Direct drive via highway to camp near Blue Waterholes for three nights. Pot luck dinner Thursday. Friday and Saturday – free days – your choice: Explore the walking tracks around Blue Waterholes. The walk to Cooleman Falls through Clarkes Gorge is gorgeous – but does involve 9 river crossings, some slippery – bring suitable shoes and walking poles. Another option is the Nichols Gorge Walk that takes in both Murrays Cave and Cooleman Cave – bring torches and even a flood light. If you’re adventurous, Murrays Cave can be explored up to 200m inside and has its own water crossings! Then there’s also the homestead and the option of guided or unguided tours at Yarrangobilly Caves (fee) and Thermals Pools (free). Or just relax in camp. http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/camping-and-accommodation/campgrounds/Blue-Waterholes-campground/map/ http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/things-to-do/Show-caves/Yarrangobilly-Caves http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/things-to-do/Walking-tracks/Yarrangobilly-Caves-Thermal-Pool-walk Sunday – return to Canberra via highway or backroads.

Washup Report:

Trip went well by all accounts. All 10 vehicles started. Camped at Long Plain Hut and all thought the camp spot was excellent. Rob Phillips returned to Canberra on Fri to pick up wife Sue, and Winston and Liane left Fri arvo but Winston rejoined Sun morning for return to Canberra. Only incident was that on Fri morning, Rob Phillips first use of a new butane canister stove resulted in it catching fire. No injuries and people were on hand to assist.
