 We left the Kowmung at BIM 467424 and climbed up a very steep track to Mt. Wonga. The track, aptly named Hell Hill by Bert Carlon, was for taking cattle between the two rivers and, though steep, it saves hours of river walking. On the top of Mt. Wonga we walked through an interesting patch of turpentine forest which was quite lush and damp compared with the barren ridge we had just climbed. We left the Kowmung at BIM 467424 and climbed up a very steep track to Mt.

 Down on the Cox we had another swim and baked in the hot sun while we had lunch. Out came the maps again as we pondered on the alternative ways of getting back to Katoomba. David took off after lunch as he had to get back to Sydney that evening. We briefly toyed with the idea of climbing up Spotted Dog Ridge to Splendour Rock but the hot, sultry weather and an approaching storm put an end to that suggestion. We took the soft option of going down the Cox to (JEN 453487) and camping on a lush green area beside the river. Down on the Cox we had another swim and baked in the hot sun while we had lunch.

 We pitched the tents and hurried inside for shelter as a violent electrical storm crackled and boomed overhead. David had a nail-biting time as he was on Mt. Debert near the power lines while the lightning was striking. After the storm we emerged from the tents and spent the evening around the fire fighting off enormous ants which were at least one metre between the eyes with nippers to match. We pitched the tents and hurried inside for shelter as a violent electrical storm crackled and boomed overhead.

I rose to a cool, misty morning to see Hans by the fire which was sending a long plume of smoke into the air, the trees looming out of the mist in the half light and the moon hanging low in the sky - superb. We moved off into the mist and crossed the Cox (river number six and only knee deep) and started the long climb up White Dog ridge, JAM 458485. We were up at 5.30 and away by 7.00.

 Michael Morcombe'​s "​Australia'​s National Parks" in its descriptive summary variously describes walking activities in the national parks as nature trail walks, hiking, walking, bush walks, bushwalking,​ rough bushwalking and rugged bushwalking. The walking activities on Hinchinbrook are the only ones he describes as '​extremely rugged bushwalking into a largely unexplored trackless mountainous interior'​!

-The next day the saddle was fairly level for a while and as is always the case we found a beter campsite within a short distance. The ease of advance ended there as we encountered a mat of swamp grass which seriously hindered progress. The ground was solid underfoot but the grass was over my head and the only way through it was to push until you could go no further, stand back, push it down with your hands until your feet could complete the operation. Then push in once more and start all over again. Being the youngest of the party I was given this job which had to be continued until we could enter the creek bed. Monsoon rains scour the creek beds clear and if one lies on your route it is the best way to walk. Soon we were happily rock-hopping all the way down past a waterfall and tempting pools to Zoe Bay. On the way down we met Margaret Butler, who had come to Zoe Bay in Peter'​s yacht with Wade and the children, walking up the creek to climb a nearby spur. Yesterday'​s distance was all over in a couple of hours.+The next day the saddle was fairly level for a while and as is always the case we found a better ​campsite within a short distance.

 We could now see the yacht with its sail up but apparently stationary on the far side of the bay. On arrival we found it had stranded trying to make the estuary for shelter from the chop of the bay. By lunch time it was well and truly careened by the 3 metre tide and had to wait until evening to be refloated in the light of a full moon and gain an anchorage in the deep lagoon. This cast doubt on whether it could pick us up at the northern end of the island unless it could escape before the next extreme high tide in a week's time. As it happened, by marking the channel an earlier sailing was possible and we met on time. There are however regular daily launches from the northern end of the island. We could now see the yacht with its sail up but apparently stationary on the far side of the bay.

They set out with light hearts, provisioned with four pears and two lemons, and expecting to find tea-houses at easy stages along the route. Disaster and disillusionment followed, of course. Such folk take risks even in Centennial Park." Many are the amusing, inform- 
-ative, and delightfUl accounts of walks done nearly a century ago along The Six-Foot ​ Track. The book thus subtitled is called Mal KATOYBA TO JENOLAN CAVES by Jim Smith, a KatooMba teacher and ecologist. 
-His book is about a track surveyed in March, 1884, as a bridle trail, and was in active although declining use until 1921. It fell into disrepair, was in parts dese- 
-crated, and also made inaccessible until its reopening in 1979. Now a route is open as near as practicable to the original, down Nellie'​s Glen, through Megalang Valley, across 
-the Cox's River and Little River, up Alqck Range and down to the Caves. It can be 
-walked comfortably in two days, or in sections. 
-This six-foot wide track was once favoured by the Governor of ILS:W., Lord Carrington and his wife, who stayed at The Carrington (named after him) at KatooMba, before riding 
-the 26 miles (39 ]n) an horseback in 1887. The trip was partly political, as the track 
-had been made at Government expense to attract tourists to go to the Caves via Katoomba rather than Mt. Victaria or Tarana. The first person to use the track after the survey, 
-and in the sane year, was '​Irlswith',​ who wrote of his one-day walk. He didn't stop 
-for a meal, but did stop to adnire the ferns and cliffs and waterfslls of Nellie'​s Glen. 
-Thousands followed over the decades, many only visiting Nellie'​s Glen, a. beauty spot destroyed lyrattempts to build a road down it in 1967 and 1968. The book deAls with this conservation issue in detail, and a third of the book consists of appendices as fascinating as the main chapters an this and other aspects. 
-Wilt Bilder'​s personal archives on bush-walking history allowed Jim Smith to greatly improve the book with many first-hand accounts of people who did the track. He walked a lArge section of the track in 1966. Alan Carey of the Lands Department did the work 
-which led to the track'​s reopening. He is now working on a track from Lapstone to 
-Bathurst! 
-AndWhy walk along the Six-Foot Track? The lovely old black and White photographs 
-reproduced in the took would persuade you as would the many autobiograOhical accounts, 
-such as those of the Pickwick Club in 188b with the first Indies. The photo of their 
-long dress and swags is - well - charming. The destination,​ of course, was The Caves 
-which were considered among the best in the world. 
-I would have liked to see a clear map of the past and present routes, but this is 6mall criticism of an attractively presented took, full of the thorough historical research of an area often walked and much loved tyrbushuaikers. A book to treasure.

 It worked so well that the following Re-union it was decided to elaborate on the same theme and the war cry of the retiring Committee was "Wunt be druv".

This was good for the bushwalking movement but not a happy state for us to go to the Re-union. There, in the afternoon, a small group of men went off to try and devise some entertainment for the campfire that might help to draw the members together. 
-The result was that, instead of keeping the numbers down, it became so worthwhile to be able to boast that one was a MEMBER ​of The Sydney Bush Walkers that before long the club had 200 members; and the few other email clubs had increased their membership with people who did not make our grade, or who found friends there and did not want to be as strenuous as The Sydney Bush Walkers. + 
-There was one man who applied to join our club who was a good walker but who proved to be incompatible to some of the good foundation members, so the committee turned him down - of course, without stating its reason. Undeterred, some months later he had his "name put on the board" again. +This Re-union was held at Euroka ​and away on the side of the crater these men found the skeleton of a heifer. Ernie Austen was a government meat inspector and he made a wonderful speech as he decorated the newly elected President - Tom Herbert - with the various bones. This bone was such and such and served this purpose for the animal. It could also symbolise such and such for the Club, etc. etc. Unfortunately,​ no record of that speech was made at the time.
