We recommend you use public transport to travel to and from your adventurous journey. We have designed this route specifically for this purpose. Check https://transportnsw.info/ for train times to Sydney Central.
If your parents are collecting you, please ask them to be punctual. You can contact them on the guide’s mobile if we are going to arrive a long way ahead or behind schedule.
We recommend drinking 3 litres of water per day plus 1 litre to cook with at night. 1 litre of water weighs 1kg. Please keep this in mind when packing. After the first day you should adjust this up or down depending on your water intake. We anticipate creek and tank water being available on all days, but this is never certain. Water from creeks or tanks should be treated before drinking, see briefing notes for more details.
A creek crossing occurs on day 2 entering camp and you will get wet feet. We do not anticipate high water on this hike but will keep you informed leading up to your journey and your hiking supervisors will make decisions on creek crossings in the field.
Composting toilets are available at our campsites on both nights. At all times toilet waste must be buried and you will need to bring a trowel for this purpose.
