About 20 kids got up at 5.15am on Thursday. With a 12kg pack and caught a train from Chatswood station to town hall, then another train to Cronulla, then walked to Cronulla wharf. We then caught a private ferry to a place called Bundeena and we saw dolphins on the way and we got off the ferry and began our 28km hike.
We went pretty quickly and stopped occasionally to look at the view. we stopped at a creek and it was such cold water and we filled up our water bottles, kept walking and stopped at this picnic place about 3 hours later and there was a waterfall which we all swam under, then continued our hike, walking over the beach for a bit, then a very steep climb. We got down to our campsite and set up tent and cooked dinner, and played spotlight. We had covered a total of 18kms and we were all exhausted.
Friday we woke up, watched the sunrise, then we packed up tent and ate breakfast and started on the steepest bit of the hike. Mr Pain’s advice was "don't stop" but when we got to the top and the view was so worth it. Then we walked to a train station in the middle of no where (Otford) and got on that, got off it at Central and on a train to Chatswood; and we all went home from there.
Big thank you to Mr Pain, Mr Hill and Mrs Vanderstraten for an incredible two days.
