    Default Abercrombie River National Park (September 22 - 24)

    Details:
    On the weekend of September 23 & 24, we’d like to explore Abercrombie River National Park with fellow adventurers. We hope to familiarise ourselves with the park and potentially plan a return visit in the coming months.



    There are four main campsites in Abercrombie River NP. We’ll meet at the most accessible site (Bummaroo Ford) on Friday afternoon, and camp at the most secluded site along the river (The Beach). We’ll take it easy on Saturday, and explore the tracks and the other sites on Sunday before leaving the park and heading home.


    When:
    September 22nd to 24th.

    Where:

    The Beach campground in Abercrombie River NP. Camping is free and cannot be booked in advance.



    Meet:
    Friday afternoon at Bummaroo Ford campground by 4:00 pm, then continue toward The Beach campsite via the Abercrombie River Fire Trail.



    Note: Bummaroo Ford is approximately 3:40 minutes from Sydney. If anyone would like to join us on the Saturday, we could arrange an alternate meeting point.


    Grade:
    Based on research, D to C. The park is open, though as always subject to weather.
    Access to The Beach is listed as 4WD only and available to those with camper trailers, with care.



    Requirements:
    This trip is suitable for stock Jeeps with rated recovery points front & rear, recovery gear & UHF radio.
    As this is a weekend trip, all requisite camping equipment, food and drink for 4 days, camera and entertainment of choice.



    For Details Contact:
    Nick Wright - 0473 526 975.

    I’ll provide updates on weather and park conditions in case of changes.

    Nick, I'm mid exam so can't join you on this. BUT, this is meant to be a great place to look for platypus. You'd need to go walking at night, still could be worth it.

    Looking forward to exploring Abercrombie River NP.

    The weather looks great with lows around 10, highs around 25, and no rain. Ive checked with NPWS Oberon and there are no track closures or fire bans in the park.

    The tents back on the Jeep, all our recovery gear is sorted and the satellite communicator re-activated.

    Anyone interested is welcome to Join us. Bring on the weekend!
