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.

SBW closed registrations for new membership in late March because it was not fair to charge the joining fee when the club could not offer a walks program.
The walks program is resuming on Tuesday 19 May but it may take a few weeks to build up to something on the scale of what the club offered in the past.
When ready, the club will re-open for registration, and reactivate the Become a Member and Join Us pages on the website.
We look forward to seeing you then !
