-In the days of the Askin Government the energy of conservationists was entirely absorbed in preventing the development of previously reserved areas such as Colong and the Boyd. All this changed under the Wran Government, which was responsible for a 100% increase in parklands, including the rainforests,​ and progress under the Unsworth Government culminated in the Wilderness Act. Those chiefly ​resonsible ​for this progress were Messrs Wran, Landa and Carr. Until recently they were opposed by the Coalition parties, inspired mainly by the National Party, though in 1985 Mr. Greiner wanted to "allow non-national park uses to be conducted in national park areas"​.+In the days of the Askin Government the energy of conservationists was entirely absorbed in preventing the development of previously reserved areas such as Colong and the Boyd.

 Mr. Tim Moore, a bushwalker, was appointed Shadow Minister for Planning and Environment after the 1984 election. For some 18 months after this the Coalition had no policy on the natural environment,​ but by October 1985 he had succeeded in securing agreement to a pro conservation policy. Elements within the National Party, however, continued to advocate reduction in the area of parkland and grazing, logging and mining in the parks. It is not surprising, therefore, that the policy consisted largely of what the Coalition would not do, rather than what it would do. Mr. Moore stressed that there would be no logging or mining in national parks, no reduction of boundaries and no opposition to the expansion of parks. Liberal party members absented themselves during the vote on World Heritage listing for rainforests,​ and both parties restricted their participation in the Wilderness Bill debate to a simple announcement that they "did not oppose"​ it. Mr. Tim Moore, a bushwalker, was appointed Shadow Minister for Planning and Environment after the 1984 election.

 __Thursday 28th January__: A beautiful sparkling sunny clear day after a cold, clear, moonlit night greeted us this morning. A burning hot, pitiless sun bore down on us all day making for tiring walking in some muddy spots and quite steep climbs around headlands. Very annoying biting blowflies were out in full force, as is usual on hot sunny days. __Thursday 28th January__: A beautiful sparkling sunny clear day after a cold, clear, moonlit night greeted us this morning.

There was no report of the S & R practice at Newnes area and although Jim Calloway'​s day walk from Waterfall to Otford went, there was no report of it. Greta Davis did somewhat better on her Bundeena to Otford walk, with 9 starters defying the wet morning.

-George Walton'​s weekend trip in the Mt.

Debora Shapira had no such problem with leeches for her Sublime Point day walk, but some of the 26 walkers who attended in the general vicinity are reported to have struggled against certain physical disabilities as a result of a pre-walk party on the previous evening. Dave McIntosh'​s exploratory walk to North Bungleboori Creek, having been deferred from the previous weekend, produced no report. Ralph Pengliss reported 17 starters in pleasant conditions on his Otford to Bundeena walk, and Cathy Longfoot had her 10 starters covering a total of 55 km for the day on her Minnamurra Falls area bicycle trip. +

-Easter weekend was wet. Carol Bruce was forced to cancel her Apsley Gorge-trip, although a hardy sub-group retreated to Glen Davis and walked in the rain there. Bill Capon varied the route of his Budawangs walk slightly from program for the 11 starters, but they did not have much to say about the weather.

 On our return route we passed over the "Blue Labyrinth"​ and I could well appreciate how the early walkers easily became "​mislaid"​ in the tangle of bumps and creeks weaving in all directions. Seen from the air, one soon realised what a great playground we have so close to home, right on the edge of an area which is becoming densely populated.

 +What you missed. On Wednesday 27th April the Hard Rock Cafe opened its occasional doors to about 35 members and visitors. The draw card band was unable to attend; its place was taken by "​Two'​s Company"​. Between the duo they played guitar, banjo and mouth organ but not all at once and sang a selection of blues and ballads. Coffee, cake, tea, wine and milo satisfied the baser needs of the audience.

 +Coming ​soon, the ultimate of decadence, a bludge weekend walk with the minimum of cooking, no tents and hot showers. Wendy Aliano is organising a walk in the Blue Mountains. Base camp is in the Clarendon ​Hotel (047.821322) Katoomba with day walks on the Saturday and Sunday. Wendy can give you the details but the idea is that you book yourself into the Hotel and be prepared for some hard strolling, book for Friday and Saturday 1 and 2 July, walks on the Saturday and Sunday.

 +We understand that the Club auction (No, the Club is not being auctioned - the Club is holding an auction) will be held in July. Keep your eyes peeled for further details of this annual bargain bonanza.

 +New __authors__ ​are more than welcome for these pages. Put your hand to it and try to write that article you've always said you would. Of late the Magazine has been a bit short on humour, ie intentional humour. Something to lighten the load and put some spring into our collective steps is definitely required. I'm sure the Editor would ghost the article if asked.
