-Mid October saw the car swap trip of Pat Harrison and Ross Hughes on Wo1gan ​and Capertee Rivers and what must be the fastest passage from Newnes to Glen Davis via the rivers.

Sheila Binns and crew of 11 had a pleasantly leisured camp a the erstwhile Reunion site at Woods Creek, while Jim Callaway took a test walk from Heathcote to Bundeena.+Mid October saw the car swap trip of Pat Harrison and Ross Hughes on Wolgan ​and Capertee Rivers and what must be the fastest passage from Newnes to Glen Davis via the rivers.

 For his Instructional walk over Paddy'​s Peak and to the Wollondilly,​ Owen Marks had a team of 13,​including 9 prospectives. Owen's report of the trip, was quite lyrical in spite of hot  weather, but by all accounts there was little time for instruction. ​ Mabel Pratt'​s day walk to Marley was enlivened by a savage storm which caused the Bundeenda ferry to ground on a shoal. At this point Wilf Hilder commented that Owen's observations of the Aurora Borealis (a northern hemisphere phenomenon) was a truly remarkable feature on the Wollondilly. For his Instructional walk over Paddy'​s Peak and to the Wollondilly,​ Owen Marks had a team of 13,​including 9 prospectives.
