Flat Top Brook circuit (6-7 Aug 2022)

Caro put a Short Notice Walk on the Program which offered a short(er) drive from home, so we signed up. It ended up being a very satisfying weekend of exploring off the Mt Hay Road. And finished in time for afternoon tea in Leura on Sunday. As Tom would say “stoked!” 🙂

Heading off onto a ridge

How do we get down there? (note cairn on opposite side)

Scrambling up the other side

The leader surveys the terrain

I think it will go down there…

And indeed it did go.. all the way to Flat Top Brook

But what goes down must come up

Plenty of wattle in flower

Tom stoked with our destination for the night

The party checking out the views

Camping on the edge

An unexpected old fire trail

Tom decided winter is swimming weather. In Urella Brook.

Exiting from Urella Brook was a bit of work…

Waterfall in the upper reaches of Urella Brook

Grinding grooves

The top of the waterfall

Beautiful hanging swamp
