 |June 30 - July 1-2|Junction of Lett River and Cox's River - along Cox's to the Six- foot track - Devil'​s Hole - Katoomba.

-|July 7-8-9|Katoomba - Narrow Neck - Splendour Rock - Megalong - Katoomba. In 1948, a plaque was placed at Splendour Rock on the southern tip of Mount Dingo "In memory of Bushwalkers who fell in World War II. Their Splendour shall never fade". Splendour Rock is in the heart of the Blue Mountains and the views of the Gangerang and Kanangra Ranges are magnificent. Medium walking, largely on tracks. Map: Myles Dunphy'​s '​Gangerang'​ Map. Leader: Roy Craggs.+|July 7-8-9|Katoomba - Narrow Neck - Splendour Rock - Megalong - Katoomba.

 On the way we tried to pick out the route of our morning'​s walk and it now seems pretty clear that we had followed up the old road built by the Commonwealth Oil Corporation in 1906. This road (also known as the Old Coach Road) "​followed the ridge to a point about 20 miles from Newnes Junction, whence it descended to the valley by a natural pass, crossed the future railway location at the 26 1/2 mile signpost and forded the Wolgan River to join the Wolgan Gap road at a point a few miles above the township"​. It seems likely that this road was reopened when the pipeline from Glen Davis to Newnes Junction was put in during the war... On the way we tried to pick out the route of our morning'​s walk and it now seems pretty clear that we had followed up the old road built by the Commonwealth Oil Corporation in 1906.
