Additional Details

Suitable for youth members who are learning to carry a loaded pack.

This route is likely to include fire trail, walking track and some off track. Track grades are medium with some extended steep ascent/decent sections. This involves extended strenuous physical activity and endurance. Suitable for youth and adults who exercise and or play sport regularly.

This camp is self-catered so please bring whatever suits your liking. It is important to bring sufficient food for the duration. Choose hearty and nutritious foods that will provide sufficient energy.

Campsite may be an informal clearing. A freestanding tent or lightweight fly is advised. Ground may be firm and space limited. Views in the morning should be rewarding. 

Prepare for bush toileting and hygiene during the hike. If we come close to a toilet we will stop however they are infrequent and sometimes closed due to maintenance or vandalism.

Participants coming by train are encouraged to travel in small groups and travel in the guard's carriage marked with a blue light. Scout uniform is not required however please wear your scarf.
