Kanangra - Yerranderie - Katoomba Walk - August 1972

Party - Bruce Parr, Phil Packham, Tony Curry, Peter Tregillgas and Dave Noble

This was my first major bushwalk. It was organised by Bruce Parr. He was an active walker in Springwood Bushwalking Club. He organised the trip for people he thought might be interested from our year in Springwood High School. It was just before we all sat the HSC exam. For me, the walk was an eyeopener. I had never seen such great country before. It whetted my appetite for more bushwalking and outdoor adventures.
