Gros Morne vs Bungonia Gorge

1 comment

Steve, having just recently completed my own "conquest" of Gros Morne and considering it to be the absolute hardest hike I have ever completed, and if you consider Bungonia to be harder then I can't even begin to imagine attempting Bungonia. I guess I will just have to be content with the view from the lookout. Both write ups were excellent btw.

The Bungonia red track is different to most and I think that it's the difference that makes it tougher. To get to the gorge, you need to scramble down some pretty steep paths (and then scramble back up at the other side). The bottom is mostly sand, until you get to the rocks and then eventually, the limestone boulders. You have to literally climb over, under, around, sometimes balancing on fallen tree trunks to pick your way through. It's doable if you are determined, but a decent level of fitness is required. The views are spectacular Daz!

    I loved this walk. I had never been that interested in this walk as I'd always wanted to head up onto the main range or out into the Jugungal wilderness. But recently the Federal Government announced $10 million to fund the establishment of a Jindabyne to Dead Horse Gap walk (and another from the main range, via Charlotte Pass to Crackenback), and I just had to find out what it was all about. I think once the longer walk is up and running, it will be one that every walker wants to do. Perhaps the beginnings of an iconic Australian walking track? I think so...

    I recently travelled to Ariah Park in NSW for the Mary Gilmore Festival. Whilst there, I head a short distance out of town and di this great heritage walk. Only a few kilometres in distance, such an informative and enjoyable walk. If you're ever in this part of NSW, make sure you take two or three hours out of you schedule to do this walk. Details now on the website.

    I spent yesterday walking in the Neverest Challenge on Mt Ainslie. A great event, but very gruelling. Our small team managed to complete the 53 laps (we actually got to 54 as my walking buddy Mike and I didn't want anyone to have to do the last lap alone). If you're looking for a well organised, fun, but gruelling event, Neverest is for you! Raising money to assist worthwhile projects in Nepal, such as re-building schools after the earthquakes. Photo One: A very fresh looking me at the start. Photo Two: A very un-fresh looking me after 12 laps and Photo Three: The team after completing 54 laps.
