This walk is more about the destination than the walk in or out which is all on fire trails. We walk down into the Kedumba Valley to a large clearing at the junction of the Kedumba River and Waterfall Creek which was once known as Maxwells Farm. Today it is an oasis for native wildlife. I have seen wombats, goannas, wallabies, kangaroos and all manner of birds there. I have been there on day walks before but thought it would be good to camp overnight and have more time to explore this vast area. The walk in and out is about 10km each way. Given the relatively short distance it won't be a late finish on Sunday and we might even beat the mid afternoon traffic.
