Maps: Lots of Maps - Kerrabee to Kurrajong
Route: Kerrabee GR 570 148 (AGD66) to Kurrajong GR 791 887 (AGD84) - about 240 kilometres
Gear: Full packs.
Party: Members of The Bush Club and SBW, led by Ian Thorpe.
This epic walk traverses the Wollemi National Park from north to south.
It is expected to take 18 days to travel from the northern-most part of the Wollemi National Park, next to the Goulburn River, to its southern-most extremity at Kurrajong Heights.
The point-to-point distance for the walk is 128 kilometres. To negotiate the rugged terrain the party will actually cover 240 kilometres, almost double the point-to-point distance.
The walkers will need to average about 13 kilometres per day. The longest day will be about 25 kilometres. The shortest day will be about 7.5 kilometres.
The walk will be broken into 3 stages. At the end of each stage the walkers will be met by Club Members who will carry in supplies for the next stage.
I will be updating their position each day.
