Hi everyone, this weekend we’ll be having an overnight trip up to Yarrangobilly Caves (Yagby) in the Snowy Mountains. These are some very pretty and well decorated caves, and the trip is suitable for all members as they’re mostly horizontal caves. In addition to this, there is a beautiful alpine cottage, and we might see some snow and brumbies (feral horses) on the drive there. We’ll meet at 8am at the usual spot outside ANU Sport on Saturday, and it’s a 2.5-3h drive to Yagby. We will hopefully have a campfire and be able to stay in Cotterills Cottage overnight, but be warned: it will be very cold up there, potentially getting down under freezing overnight. So bring lots of warm clothes, and warm stuff to sleep in!

You’ll need to bring:

As usual, NUCC will have cavepacks, helmets, headtorches. We also do have some camping gear, but you’re probably better off borrowing it from other members.
