Meeting Wednesday 5th August: Guest Speaker

Meeting Wednesday 5th August: Guest Speaker

Our guest speaker at our meeting on Wednesday 5th August will be:

Port Augusta to Gulf of Carpentaria Walk 1973
by Bob Mossel

When 2 brothers and 3 girls spent 4 months crossing the continent on foot by an inland route in 1973, they became the first recorded party to do so since Burke and Wills. They were also probably the first in which all party member walked every step of the way and still remain as the only party to cross the final salt-flats and mangroves (two more camps) and stand on the beach of the Gulf of Carpentaria.

Hiking gear for hire at reasonable rates. Try out gear before you buy your own.

Checklist of equipment, food ideas, water, first aid list, rules, minimal impact bushwalking and what to do if you get lost.

Joining ABW takes you to new places you may never have heard of, off the beaten track, and to have new experiences.

Meetings 7:30pm on the 1st Wednesday of the month, in the hall at the North Adelaide Community Centre.

From Our Blog

We were advised that the logbook on Cleft Peak in the Gammon Ranges was full so we organised a trip to put a new logbook and a replacement ABW designed metal container.
A research exercise into the locations and state of logbooks and containers placed by Adelaide Bushwalkers on summits in the Flinders Ranges.
Earlier this year, just before the Nepal earthquake, nine club members completed a 21 day, lodge-based walk through the Tamang, Langtang, Gosainakund and Helambu regions north of Kathmandu.
A trip report of a kayaking expedition down the “Toop” - the Toupnein Creek - a centrepiece of canoeing in the Lindsay River Area, an offshoot of the Murray River.
