Lucky for eight2019 03 31 sclanders creek group

Sclanders Creek, Maitai Valley – Sunday 31 March 2019

We found plenty of variety in the bush up the Maitai River. Parking near the dam, we walked up the south branch, then on up Sclanders Creek towards the Maitai Caves. Just before the caves we continued up the creek on the old (closed) track, then puffed up a trackless spur on the true right of the creek, which took us to a lunch spot on the top of Pt 753. We managed to avoid two wasp nests on the way, but generally we saw few wasps. After lunch we were back on track, returning to the cars via the Black Diamond, Sunrise and Peaking Ridge tracks. About seven hours in all.

The lucky eight were Eric, Jo, Chris, Marian, Di, Pete, Joy and David S (scribe).
