Day 2 - Butchers Creek - Scotts Main Range - New Yards Range

Above - a wet camp in Butchers Creek. A lot of damage caused by wild pigs ripping up the banks has occured. It rained a lot overnight - and we had heavy rain over breakfast - so we decided to head towards the huts on New Yards Range and sit out the bad weather. Despite the rain - the creek was dry except for a small pool of water near where we camped.

Above - Enjoying the fire inside the dry cosy hut at New Yards. This is one of two huts owned by a company made up of members of the Catholic Bushwalkers. This hut is kept unlocked and passing bushwalkers are allowed to use it as a refuge in bad weather. We were very gratefull!

Day 3 - New Yards - Butchers Creek - Broken Rock Range
