 At Katoomba, Don Wallace and a touring car awaited us and we did the 58 miles to the Kanangra turn-off in record time, arriving at 3.45 p.m. At 6.45 we sighted, and shortly after camped within view of, Cunningham'​s Hut. Old Cunningham seemed quite pleased to see us, and after paddling in the Budthingeroo Creek running through his selection, we cut bedding, swatted spiders, and by eleven o'​clock were s'​endormix profondement. At Katoomba, Don Wallace and a touring car awaited us and we did the 58 miles to the Kanangra turn-off in record time, arriving at 3.45 p.m. At 6.45 we sighted, and shortly after camped within view of, Cunningham'​s Hut.

-Next morning, without packs, we made cur may to "Green Hillock",​ 4,300' and took prismatic bearings to all the prominent points. The Paralyser, Cyclops and Baldy Harry on the Thuurat ​Range were facing us, whilst Gangerang, Guouogang (Goo-wo-wo-gang) and Mount Jenolan were plainly visible.+Next morning, without packs, we made cur may to "Green Hillock",​ 4,300' and took prismatic bearings to all the prominent points.

 Roly Whalan'​s old selection and the Swamps heading Mumbedah and Kanangaroo Creeks lay below us. Descending we made our may to the place where the Kanangaroo dives over the divide, but a dense fog obscured the scene and its persistence lost us a fine view. Roly Whalan'​s old selection and the Swamps heading Mumbedah and Kanangaroo Creeks lay below us.

 The return journey was more difficult than the previous night'​s,​ for there was no moon to help us.

-__Friday__: Breaking camp early, we set off for the "​T"​ (Thurat) tree from which we reblazed the track to the Upper Morong or Boyd Creek, and camped at the first water. We all felt tired, but set out lightheartedly enough for Gentle'​s ​Sheerdomn, after lunch. At the Thurat Trig we found a message left by Max Gentle in a syrup tin and shortly after topped the Thurat Range.+__Friday__: Breaking camp early, we set off for the "​T"​ (Thurat) tree from which we reblazed the track to the Upper Morong or Boyd Creek, and camped at the first water.

 The view was most comprehensive and beggars description by its vastness. Crossing Danae Creek we followed down a ridge through thick jungle growth to Gentle'​s Sheerdown, reached by crossing a narrow neck with a sheer drop either side. The view was most comprehensive and beggars description by its vastness.

An interesting fact is that the river at Central Colo, though fresh and drinkable, rises and falls several feet with the tide.
  
 Some short side excursions were done during the weekend, including trips to Gee's Lagoon, Ferrari Farm Sanctuary and the scenic and historic Parr's Brush Road. There is still a need for more reserves for Public Recreation in the Colo Valley. Some short side excursions were done during the weekend, including trips to Gee's Lagoon, Ferrari Farm Sanctuary and the scenic and historic Parr's Brush Road.
