be sure and hike the pipeline trail and trek through the glowworm tunnel. it's arduous at points but spectacular, right before reaching the tunnel you drop into this moist, humid cloud forest that looks for all the world like something from the late cretacious (and in fact the wollemi valley is famous for being home to a few species of plants that have been traced back hundreds of millions of years.) also be sure to climb mystery mountain, but don't do what i did and miss the trail and almost die. here's my blog post on it from 2009, it's probably worth a read to decide whether or not you want to make the trip. i've got pictures up as well

it's actually not far past three sisters (which is itself absolutely incredible, definitely worth a day or so.) it's all part of the wollemi wilderness. no one lives in newnes (except for the guy that owns the campground, a hermit, a 70-year-old farmer and a hermit) so i don't think you'll find someone to drive you there but i'm pretty sure he'll pick you up if you're paying for a camping permit. dude's name is thomas, he's an expat from germany, cool as hell. tell him phil, the guy who helped build his brick filtration tank, sent you

 

 

here's some info on camping in newnes

 

and here's the guy's website

Thanks, will check him out!

 

I'm very familiar with three sisters after a day of hiking it closer to the bottom we camped out on a the giant steps trail me and my friends all got blackout drunk on goon on a fire trail, ahh good times!

i never had a problem with leeches, but the spiders ate me alive. i conquered a weird spider phobia by sleeping in a room chock full of them... every time i turned out the light they'd scuttle across my chest, and since it was a solar-powered property i couldn't sleep with the lights on, so i just wrapped up in a blanket and went to sleep. i woke up covered from head to toe in spider bites but obviously none of them were poisonous

A failed batch of sour beer. I don't remember which brewery, but it was the nastiest poo I've ever drank. I enjoy a nice lambic every now and again, but souring beer is pretty unpredictable and when it's bad it's really fuging bad.
