Check the Relive video below for SBW's trip to Wollemi Creek via Crawfords Pass last Saturday.
Video by Zoltan. Note the strong regrowth after the 2020 fires on the ridges. It is obliterating the old pad to the top of the Pass.
SBW got back out there on the first weekend of Freedom from lockdown. Try the Relive link below to see one of the walks, down the T3 to the Colo and up Tootie Creek in the Wollemi.
The T3 Track
Relive is a fun app for bushwalking. This video was created by Zoltan using the Professional version of the app. There is a free version with fewer features.
Want to know how and where to walk in the Colo ?
Check the video below, a talk given Thursday 16 September on Zoom for the SBW Social Night.
Last weekend, while setting up his tent on a huge sandy bank on The Colo, Mark dig up a tungsten spoon with the initials AJA, lost by our former VP on his epic 11 day solo hike through the Wollemi in October 2017.

Try this animated view created by John P. of a 7 hour hike near West Head on Good Friday :
National Parks have reinstated the locked gate on the Drip Rock Fire Trail. The gate had been open for about 10 months, offering easy access to The Island and the Colo river. We will just have to walk the extra 12kms to the end of the fire trail. Meanwhile, the GNW between Bush Creek Road and Kingtree Ridge, 11 kms north of Yarramalong, is open again after being closed for two years due to logging operations.

A recent ABC Radio podcast on Australian Bushwalking refers many times to SBW as pioneers in bushwalking in this country. Around the 26 minute mark, a listener called in to say that other clubs in the 1950s referred to SBW as the Sydney Bloody Walkers.
