Winter is here, and that means hiking season! Our next event is our pre-expedition hike, at the start of the school holiday break, from July 6 to 8. We’re heading to the Megalong Valley west of Katoomba, exploring the bush and the trails such as the famous Six Foot Track.
Make sure to visit our resources page to check our list of recommended hiking equipment. Remember to pack light and warm, and carry two litres of water. The club will supply hiking tents, to be shared between two or three people (around one kilogram each). If your pack weighs more than one third of your body weight then it’s too heavy. Make sure your pack fits you well; and especially that the waist strap can be tightened around your waist. There will be a pack check on Thursday night the July 6 for juniors and anyone who hasn’t hiked with us before. We want to make sure that you will be safe, warm and comfortable. If you need to purchase equipment and would like some help, please contact us.
