 The upper part of the Allum had a lot of Tree Fern and bracken, but towards the lower part there were sections of flat shelving rock and also one very pretty waterfall about 20 feet high.

 Camp was made on the soft bedding under the She Oaks at the Nattai junction, with wood, water, and scenic views all to hand. There is a very large flat here with the remains of an old hut.

 At 8 a.m. after Joan had called the roll twenty one people sot off. Affer about half an hour's walking we dropped down into the upper reach of the Allum River, which at that stage was only a dribble. How beattiful we thought this darling little river was, the steep banks covered with lush ferns and grasses and towering gums on either side, dipping now and again under rocks that jutted out over it. It gave me the impression of wading through a dripping cavern lined with the softest green velvet then extending into a tunnel wl/ich stretched till past 6 o'​clock that evening. It had many tricks up its sleeve and many surprises in store for us. On and on we waded, how it obtained the name of river is hard to fathom. At 8 a.m. after Joan had called the roll twenty one people sot off.
