A chance to be see nocturnal animals. Around 5km and 270m climb. Map: Hall. This is a promotional walk for non members. Limit: walk booked out. Leaders: John Evans - john@johnevans.id.au, 0417 436 877 and Cynthia C. Transport: drive yourself.

8 of us met at the appointed place and time.

Further Information

Thanks to the excellent recent short night walks by David D, we'll do the same for the Canberra Womens Adventure Group, as on 3 Jun 13.

Please don't get thingy because there are no places on this walk for CBC members. It's about the Club helping other walking groups to get out and about. This is a promotional walk for non members.

CBC has put on a special walk for these adventurous ladies on 23 Mar 13.

What to wear/bring: Warm clothes, including beanie and gloves. A torch - preferably a head torch, but a hand-held torch is fine. Perhaps a little bottle of water and a snack bar/fruit in a back pack.

I have some jealous friends!

Track Notes

6 terrific CWAG ladies and one terrific and very organised co-leader. All I had to do was stand around. The ladies braved the weather and were rewarded with views to the lights of Canberra - clear on the way up and a little clouded in at the top. I reckon we enjoyed the warmest part of the day.

We'll do it again in a fortnight.


Distance: 5.1km Climb: 280m. Time: 7.00 - 8.35pm (1hr 35 mins), with a couple of minutes at the top.

Grading: S/E; E(4)

Walk Participants

8 walkers - 6 CWAGs, Cynthia C, me.
