This year I was joined with Sarah, Andy and Cal for the annual Dawn Service at Splendour Rock. We left Carlon’s Farm at 20:00 and headed out via the fire trail (Medlow Gap). It was good weather and made decent pace, getting in at Mobbs Swamp at midnight to get some rest. We set the alarms for 03:30 to make it up to Splendour Rock in time for the dawn service.

This year we had fantastic weather and a beautiful sunrise.

Fungi along the way
There were loads of Banksia’s out which was nice to see.
After all the rain we were quite worried about the creeks being up, luckily they had gone down quite a bit and were easy enough to cross.
Almost back at Carlons Farm – the final stint!

Afterwards we headed out to Hargraves Lookout to look at the crazy hail storm just missed us.
So much hail fell in Blackheath that snowmen could be made!
