Walk grade

Description

Theme: Christmas in July with a Secret Santa on Saturday night (max. value $10).

Sat.26th: Today we start the zig-zag down along the Tothill Range which feature great views, woodlands, rocky summits and farm tracks. We begin with a steep climb for great far-reaching views, then descend to Huppatz Hut. Next we hug the western foothills between the range and Apoinga Lagoon. Niblet Gap offers a crossing to the eastern side before reaching Webb Gap.

Sun.27th: We continue the zig-zag down along the Tothill Range passing through the largest remaining section of remnant scrub in the area. The views are still with us as are the wind turbines that are now a constant feature of the mid-north horizon. We finish the day near the bottom of the Tothill Range at Gerkie Gap.
