    The trip was an hour paddling around the Dam; 1.25 hr to gain 425m elevation to Mt Joyce; 1 hr to return to the boats & 15mins back across the Dam. An easy-going 4 hrs on a Sunday morning :)

      I'm aiming to plan a paddle & camp up the Tweed River in the near future. I'll email the dates when they become available.

    as per mail out, Lost World (& specifically getting off the northern end of Razorback Mtn) maybe a bit treacherous on Saturday afternoon.
    I'm looking at creating a trip on Sunday, out towards Cunningham Gap or other

    do you need a tent or is there a hut to sleep in?

    March 26

    • Rob M.

      I know of a few archaic huts in strange park-like places, but I'm reluctant to publicise them broadly lest our wombles remove them too.

      March 26

    • Shawn H.

      Rob is right in saying no huts.

    Sorry Shawn just got around to withdrawing on the actual meetup page now, but as discussed earlier, I'm out with an ankle sprain from touch footy, and Martha is out too for work. Hope the wet weather holds off for you guys.

    March 27

    • Shawn H.

      No probs. The weather doesn't look promising :( hope the ankle gets better soon

    Wow. I thought LW was closed. Did you have to do anything special to get access organised?

      Hi Rob , just log onto Qld government national parks web page and you will see it's still allowed just limited number.

      ! That's great news (to me). All this time I'd thought otherwise. How about the old farmer's paddock from Kerry Road that used to be the popular access, is that still taboo? If so, what's the route planned for this walk? Sorry for the rush of questions.

    Hi Shawn,
    would you recommend this hike for myself? I also have a friend who has hiked here once and would like to come. I have no equipment atm

    March 4

    • Shawn H.

      I will organise one of the April trips to be a suitable one. I have enough spare gear to set you up for an overnighter.

      March 6

    • Masato B.

      Thanks Shawn that would be much appreciated.

      March 7

  • Denis

    I'm a friend of Alex and Martha, who have convinced me to come along. Looks like an impressive walk!

    March 5

  • Shawn H.

    Hi Alex - yes this will take in the top of Mt Razorback. It's wall to wall green up there on the top & not much of a photo opportunity....but great countryside none the less

    March 4

  • Lachlan R.

    I wish I could make this! Definitely keen to join another trip soon and get some more shots.

    March 4

  • Alex

    Hi Shawn, will this include Mt Razorback?

    March 4

  • Alex

    Sounds good to me... haven't been out for too long!

  • ray w.

    March 4

  • Shawn H.
