It seems the nude bushwalking caper is really catching on. Last Sunday we had a huge group of 16 strip off for an enjoyable day in the lower gorge of Erskine Creek. Despite a dismal weather forecast it was all blue skies and sunshine, and we took advantage with hours of splashing about in the pristine water.
Party: T2, May, Sierra, Tully, Kristian, Sean, Gary, Ray, Natalie, Daniel, Chris, Sam, Siang, Tim, Awen and Jason – Trip report by Sierra: Meet at 9:30am at Glenbrook Station. Sierra thinks she is ...

What better way to spend a weekend. One day going down probably the most spectacular of the Kanangra canyons, Danae Brook. Then day two heading up the spectacular Thurat Spires -- those pinnacles of rock that leap out in every viewing of Kanangra Gorge. The trip came complete with the usual challenges, as well as some more unusual (not to mention the odd wild pig). It's also not every day you finish a canyon with more ropes than you started with!
Party: Paul, Kosta, Helen, Josh and Stephen Danae Brook is one of Kanangra's most iconic slot canyons and well known for being a long, challenging, yet spectacular trip. There are several exit opti...

What happens when you stumble on NPWS staff while nude bushwalking in the Blue Mountains? You'd be surprised!

Korrowall Ridge (home to a secret southern pass onto Mt Solitary) is one of the most impressive traverses I've ever done.
Never more than a few metres wide, cliffs plunging on both sides, an unending chain of rocky outcrops to climb over / around / under.
It doesn't get much better than this!

During the last 10 years FreezeFest (two weeks of wet canyoning in the middle of winter) has become an institution in the US. This year saw there first ever Aussie one, and it was a brave band of Suboir folks who took on the challenge. Best of all, we didn't just copy the Yanks, we threw down the gauntlet by doing the final canyon completely naked!!!

I think it's fair to say we've never had so much fun failing to find my objective. A wonderful long weekend spent searching for aboriginal art in the Wollemi wilderness. Truly magnificent country. Definitely an inspiration to return again!

Never let the rain get in the way of a good adventure!
Em and T2 braved the wet conditions in search of the spectacular lookout atop the Island, which towers over the junction of the Colo and Wollangambe Rivers in Wollemi National Park.
Party: Emma Spencer and Tim Vollmer My first trip with the Sydney University Bushwalkers (SUBW) was an overnight amble to and from the Colo River. It was a 6km on-track bushwalk and thus it provide...

Interested in canyoning in Europe? Joe B has done an incredibly detailed review of a new guidebook that he argues is the most detailed English-language guide to the region ever produced.

What do you do during winter when the canyoning bug bites? Sky decided to take a group through the spectacular Long Gully Canyon at Bungonia, along with some bushwalking and easy caving. Perfect!

After two years of testing in Europe, adidas have released a specialist canyoning shoe, the Hydro Pro.
I've spent the last two months testing them out in Australian conditions. They have some flaws, like all shoes, but overall they are very good. Great grip, light, supportive, comfortable, warm, and reasonably hard wearing.
Check out the full review.

Donkey Mountain is about as close as I can imagine to what bushwalker heaven might be like. An amazing island of rock, soaring out of the valley, ringed by towering cliffs, dotted with distinctive pagodas, the rock fractured by countless cracks, canyons and caves all waiting to be explored.

Epic climbing trip in the Wolgan that very nearly went wrong. Interesting lessons on making sure you come back alive!
