This past weekend, I joined the Sydney Uni bushwalking group for a weekend hike down to the Colo River from Mountain Lagoon. We stayed at Meroo. It was a 12km walk each way. Hiking with your own tent, supplies etc is hard on the legs! I've been stumbling around like a cripple all day today
It was a fantastic challenge... but I've got to say... bring on the luxury camping in the October school hols!
We were the only ones at Meroo and there was a drop toilet and water from the river we boiled and was fine to drink. A good spot if you want a challenging overnight hiking style camp trip.
