Mt Victoria-Mt York & return; Sunday August 27.

As Mt Victoria Station is over 2 hours by train from Sydney, it will mean
the early (but not too early!) train. That way we can be back in Sydney
that night by 6.30pm or 7pm.
What to bring:
Lunch, 1.5 Litres water, good shoes, and a rain cover just in case.
The weather forecast is for "partly cloudy" (Lithgow). It will probably not
get above 10 degrees C (and the very early morning temperature will be 0

Only put your name down if you seriously intend to come.

Meeting place and times will be sent to you once you sign up.
