Hi everyone,

As you’re aware the level 2 camp is scheduled for October 22-23. Please register asap on https://events.adventist.org.au/Registration/Event/1261 .

We’re off to the Royal National Park to do a part of the coast track walk and as they say : The Coast track simply must be walked at least once in a lifetime. You’ll walk along cliffs, beaches and escarpments, taking in magnificent ocean views and the rugged beauty of Royal National Park’s coastline as you go. For an idea of the area see http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/things-to-do/Itineraries/itinerary-the-coast-track

Plan is to travel by bus from Wahroonga Church car park leaving 7:30am Saturday 22 October and plan to return around 4pm Sunday.

We plan to camp at North Era campground and walk in from Otford with packs for around 7 km on Saturday then out again via Wattamolla Sunday ( approx 9 km) with rest and swimming to break it up. We will drop our packs and Garie Beach for the Sunday walk and walk with day packs from there to Wattamolla.

Be at Wahroonga church by 7:20am with your hiking pack & a DAY PACK.

Please make sure you come dressed ready to walk – good, comfortable walking boots with good walking socks and either gaiters or long loose pants with zip-off legs as there are scratchy bush parts to get through. We also recommend a broad-rimmed hat and long sleeve shirts for sun protection.
