Autumn Trip

ANZAC Weekend trip. Leave Adelaide on Friday 21st April 2016 and return to Adelaide on Tuesday 25th April 2017 (or Wednesday 26th April depending on group and activities).
This will be a routine check of loggers and taking the usual photo points.

It will also be a fantastic opportunity to observe the effects of the lightning strike and fire on The Plateau (December 2015) and also see if there is any remaining water around from the big rainfall event in November 2015 which was followed up by further heavy falls in December 2015, January 2016 and February 2016. Early March has also had some smaller promising rainfall.

Spring Trip

Labour Day weekend. Leave Adelaide Friday 29th September 2017. Return to Adelaide Tuesday 3rd October 2017. More Details to come.**

**this date and the objectives of this trip may change depending on the size and the composition of the group going. Keep an eye on the website for updates.

Usually there is a group get-together (6 to 8 people) about 3 weeks before the start of the trip. This is so that leaders and expeditioners can meet and sort out the transport and food details, and SEG can check that you have got all the equipment that you need. The cost for each expeditioner (other than the driver) is $120.00 to cover the cost of transportation. Each person brings their own food. A list of required food and equipment is provided.
