Party - Rik, John, Chuin Nee, Alan, Megan, Dave N (jnr), Mark, Carsten, Dave N (snr).


We spent two days in Wollemi National Park. On the saturday - we went off exploring for new canyons. We went through some great country - but the three creeks we explored all turned out to be only poor quality canyons.

Photos for the Sunday can be found on this page
