Description:
Helensburgh - Burning Palms Beach - Otford (Royal National Park).
Sunday 17th September 2017.

Please note that this walk is NOT full,entry is only closed until 9th
September - after then you can sign on to join this walk.

A reasonably easy walk of 12-13 km. A good introductory walk for new
members. Moderate grades on which a fit beginner should have no problems.
Helensburgh is just under an hour by train from Sydney.
Great views of Illawarra Escarpment and the Sea.
(Note: will will also look at Metropolitan Tunnel only if it is accessible
and not flooded)
Leeches: low chance if you are careful; high chance if you keep stopping to
check for them!

Travel by train - meet up at Central Station. Details of where and when
given once you sign up. It won't be too early!
Train fare with Opal Card is $2-60 return.
Back to Sydney by 6.30pm.
What you need: You need to bring: lunch, good shoes (Volleys are OK),
sunscreen, 1.5
Litres water, and a headlamp or small torch is advisable, the sort that
cost $5 or less at KMart or a camping store. Swim clothes if you want to
swim.

We will be able to take a look at Figure 8 Pool as the tide will be low at
lunchtime that day. Even so, it will depend on the seas not being rough. If
it is not safe, we will not look at Figure 8 Pool. A condition on joining
this trip is that you MUST follow the trip leader's (i.e. My) advice about
this. All trip leaders write trip reports at the end of walks, and if you
disobey instructions you will be named!

Please note that smoking is not allowed on trains, nor in National Parks. I
also prefer that smokers not smoke throughout the whole walk.

You MUST be a member of either SUBW or Subwoir to join this trip, which you
can do through the SUBW website. Only sign up if you are sure you can come.
We take a dim view of "no-shows".

Also, if you miss out on a place on this walk, please do not just turn up
at the station hoping a place will come up.
