-|*July 2,3,4|There is a classic Test walk from Kanangra by way of Cloudmaker,​Tiwilla Plateau, Stockyard Spur and Gingra Creek. A steady plod to Cloudmaker, Good views from Tiwilla, a scramble down the chains on Compagnoni'​s Pass (sparing a thought for the ones who went down before the chains were placed there by the University of N.S.W. Bushwalkers in March, 1963), eyes open to take the correct change of direction on the Buttress, a quick descent of Stockyard Spur, a lush campsite on the glorious Kowmung, and Sunday in beautiful Gingra Creek where you can still see traces of the Cedar Road which was used to get the Red Cedar out around the turn of the century, and a steepish climb out of the creek to Cottage Rock on the Gingra Range. Please note that the nominal leader is unable to fulfill his obligation this weekend and therefore a substitute leader is needed. Will someone please fill the breach?

 If the State Government and the Clutha development Company proceed with their plans, the anti-Clutha movement which is forming could make the Colong, Little desert and the Cooloola Sands efforts look like church social events. Experience gained from these fights together with the strength and standing of the more than 26 organisations already banded together, should make it an interesting event. If the State Government and the Clutha development Company proceed with their plans, the anti-Clutha movement which is forming could make the Colong, Little desert and the Cooloola Sands efforts look like church social events.
