The Duke of Edinburgh team went on an expedition to the Grose Valley, in the Blue Mountains National Park, from the 9 - 11 June.
The group featured 26 participants in total, nine of whom were on their silver award (all on their practice expeditions) and 17 participants on their bronze award (10 on their practice and seven on their qualifying expeditions).
The group navigated from Blackheath, down the steep descent from Perrys’ lookdown into the world heritage listed Blue Gum Forest, camping at Acacia Flat on the first night. On the second day, the group split into its bronze and silver components, with the bronze group ascending the spectacular Govetts’ Leap back to Blackheath, and the silver group following the Grose River to camp at Burra Korain on the second night. They then ascended Mount Victoria, via Victoria Falls, finishing at the township of Mount Victoria on the third day.
The expedition was both a challenge and enjoyable experience for everyone involved, with fitness levels tested and a real sense of achievement at the finish of the walk.
