We will finish unfinished business (Mt Donaldson + McAllisters Ck) on the w/end 27-28 of this month. Looking forward to hiking the park again now that weather has really cooled off. Let's hope there is WATER this time around.

Done and dusted

It was a casual overnighter, three couples and it was the first overnight hike for one hiker.

We parked up at Nundubbermere Falls carpark.

Walked upstream along the Severn River for a swim at ??????? Holes or Tanks waterhole. The others are very keen climbers and spotted an good opportunity for some deep water solo/free climbing. We had a swim while watching the climbers in action.

Than it was up over the hill to a water hole called Bee Hive on the Severn and set up camp. Explored down river for a kilometer or two... went for another swim than back to the campsite.

Our leader was also keen to catch dinner, ended up cooking a yellow belly and a silver perch, quite tasty.

Walk out on the Sunday by following the Severn upstream to our start point. A couple of more swims (I practiced floating my pack across the river) , some boldering, a scramble to check out a cave, Monday Falls than the short slog up to the carpark.

Beers and pizza at the Brass Monkey Brewery.

A good weekend.

Very relaxed, too relaxed I'd say but as long as you had fun that's what counts the most. No swimming for us though; it's going to be a lot chillier.
