20/10/2018 - 21/10/2018 Training Instructional Wombeyan Back by popular demand a repeat of the cave surveying course facilitated by Mike Lake (SUSS). This trip is now full.
03/11/2018 - 11/11/2018 Caving Easy/Medium New Zealand Postponed to Spring 2018. Awesome! But be warned, after caving in NZ, you may never cave in Oz again. Numbers will be limited due to transport/accommodation logistics.
17/11/2018 - 18/11/2018 Canyoning Easy/Medium Katoomba Wowsers & Doomsday previously scheduled for this weekend are being postponed. Instead, some easier canyons will be on the calendar based on participant's skill level, beginners welcome.
23/11/2018 - 25/11/2018 Canyoning Medium Newnes Plateau Friday - Dead Log Canyon; camping somewhere on the Bunglebori on Friday & Saturday nights. Saturday, Luna Park. Sunday exiting upstream to Hailstorm Retreat. Numbers limited. Possibility of attending only Saturday/Sunday but would mean rendezvousing very early in the morning on Saturday with the group camping (and only possible for those with excellent navigation skills).
