20–23 September Car Camp
Give a Dam Campaign - Yerranderie area, Blue Mountains
Joint NPA / CBC Activity
The aim is to support the campaign to prevent the wall of Warragamba Dam being raised, with subsequent damage to the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. Come and see some of the areas that would be affected. Participants are invited to make a donation to the campaign. On Friday morning, drive to Yerranderie in the south-eastern Blue Mountains to camp free for two nights next to the cars at Batsh Camp. Friday pm: Explore this old mining town or ascend Yerranderie Peak. Saturday: Follow the fire trail to Byrnes Gap, ascend Gander Head and explore the Axeheads, with wide-ranging views. Sunday: Drive back to the Mount Armour Fire Trail and ascend basalt-capped Mount Colong, the highest peak in the southern Blue Mountains. Monday: Drive home (about 4.5 hours).
