There are hot showers at the campground and Gas BBQs. The club has 2 Sea kayaks that can be used by members for this long weekend.

Some kayaking experience is essential as this is not a beginner's trip, we will be paddling at least 16-18km each day.

Greg Kirk is from the Ambulance Service of NSW Special Casualty Access Team (SCAT). SCAT was first formed in 1986, from the need for paramedics to be able to provide high quality pre-hospital care to patients in any location.

SCAT paramedics have undertaken specialist training which covers competencies such as survival, bushcraft, basic and advanced roping, caving, canyoning, mountaineering, mines rescue, leadership, teamwork, chemical biological and radiological procedures, four-wheel driving, navigation and white water survival.

They are taught to be self-sufficient and often ?camp out' with their patients when weather or operational conditions dictate a need to ?stay put' for a period. SCAT paramedics support rescue squads, specialist police units and fire brigades in HAZMAT; work on helicopters and access and treat patients in caves, canyons, mines, and on cliff ledges.
