This morning we have an early start setting off at 5am, you will be given a packed breakfast to eat enroute to The Castle.
Standing defiant like an island in the sky The Castle will enchant even the most jaded bush
walker. Your trek will pass through vast rainforest and woodland as you ascend Kalianna Ridge. We will traverse around the base of The Castle under sheer rock faces, passing caves and waterfalls en-route to the narrow gateway of Meakins Pass.
The scramble along the exposed ridge to the summit now begins, climbing high above the
ancient forests below before arriving on the large plateau of The Castle summit. We will eat lunch at the summit, gazing out at the spectacular panoramic views of The Budawang Range and Tasman Sea.
After lunch, we’ll make our way back down, arriving back at Mollymook at around 5pm.
