 On the eighth day of Christmas, that's New Year's Day or 1 January 1996 to those with numeracy skills, George led us down from the Mountain. Up early for an early start we were keen to go. Besides it was wet and miserable. Through the mist and rain, never, erring, never tiring, and with great confidence we headed due west. Down off Dicky Cooper Bogong right to the spot where we camped on the night of the second day of Christmas. Then we tramped down the road in the Wind and rain to the power station car park. Because of the rain we changed in the visitor'​s section of the power station. Fortunately there were no visitors to be shocked or embarrassed by so many partially dressed, undressed and/or wet and bedraggled bushwalkers. The remainder of this the last day of the walk was spent having lunch and returning home.

 +Start of Simmer Sizzle! - November 29- 
 +We started off very well with the annual BBQ to celebrate the beginning of long balmy summer nights to come. Temperatures were high in the courtyard of our clubroom at Kirribilli, partly due to the weather and partly due to the belly dancing class who decided to perform on the overhead balcony because of heat. The free entertainment was particularly enjoyed by some of our male members who became quite vocal at one stage with their appreciation.
  
 +The carnivorous amongst us sizzled their dinners happily and everyone had a great time in spite of the skies opening up during the evening. Not to be easily dissuaded, we quickly re-grouped under the narrow verandah surrounding the courtyard, hoping the rain mould soon ease but it didn'​t. As it turned out this was a warning of the type of wet summer Sydney has since been experiencing ever since. At least we haven'​t had to worry about bush fires!

-Determined not to be caught again by the weather, we set up inside the clubroom for the annual Christmas bash. Tony liolgate's children worked hard on the decorations for some hours before the party, blowing up balloons and draping streamers everywhere. Then the members started to arrive and quickly filled the clubroom to bursting point.

-2) Katherine Gorge. A relaxing walk exploring one of the Territory'​s premier tourist attractions away from the crowds. 
-3 Gorge to Edith Walk. We'll take our time, replace trail markers, do some minor track maintenance and show you some beautiful spots that lie off the track unknown to 99% of those who pass by. 
-4) Edith Falls and Stow Creek. A special walk on Aboriginal land. If our training program for Aboriginal walking guides has progressed far enough, we will be accompanied by an Aboriginal trainee. 
-Please ask for the trip notes which give far more information than we can put in an ad like this.
