Yerranderie Canberra Bushwalking Cub & National Parks Association walk

Yerranderie Canberra Bushwalking Cub & National Parks Association walk

The Canberra Bushwalking Club and National Parks Association ACT are co-hosting a fundraiser & awareness raising walk in the Yerranderie area of
the southern Blue Mountains for the GIVE A DAM campaign. It will run from the 20th-23rd of September. The aim is to support the campaign to prevent the wall of Warragamba Dam being raised, with subsequent damage to the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.  Come and see some of the areas which would be affected.  Participants are invited to make a donation to the campaign. 

On Friday morning, drive to Yerranderie in the south eastern Blue Mountains to camp next to the cars free for two nights.  Friday pm: Explore this old mining town or ascend Yerranderie Peak.  Saturday: Follow the fire trail to Byrnes Gap, ascend Gander Head and explore the Axeheads, with wide-ranging views.  Sunday: Drive back to the Mt Armour Fire Trail and ascend basalt-capped Mt Colong, the highest peak in the southern Blue Mountains.  Camp for free by the cars at Batch Camp.  Monday: Drive home
