    Re: Brisbane LF meetup thread.

    Haha was waiting for yourself or Alex to pipe up with that one Ryan and I were just talking about it earlier. Totally keen for the Coomera River thing, so long as there's not too much scrambling down sheer cliff faces, but I'm keen to rough it up the river for a few k's.

    That's something I have often thought about. The other option is to abseil down from the lookout, but I don't think the rangers are as relaxed about that as they apparently used to be!

    ABSEIL no way. Heights flip me out more than sweaty photographers!
    I'll walk up the gorge. We just need the river level to drop a bit. As I understand it there is only one scramble up about 4m or so... Needs rope when one has 15kg of LF on the back. We'd also need water proof bags for the gear.

    Yes mate. The route is pretty simple. Just hard work and quite slippery I believe. About 4 hours each way...

    Give me a couple of months to attain some kind of fitness level, and by then it'll be winter and I'll be sweet (so long as I don't bugger my foot again beforehand :P)

    Nah. We need to go in April. Otherwise the day will be too short!

    Stef, are you thinking of walking all the way up the Gorge from Gwongoorool Pool? That is one option. I understand the so called Mystery Track down the side of the gorge from closer to the falls is possibly a quicker way in, and quite safe if you are careful, although I have never done it myself. (Re option 3, I wasn't serious about the abseiling!)

    Alex, I think your getting-out-of-bed watch may be fast...
