Pelverata Falls

Monday 28 April 2014

As a nice day was in the offing we decided perhaps a bushwalk might be the go.  However it was not until breakfast that the thought of Pelverata and Slippery Falls would be a good option. We seemed to recall there was a geocache there and a check on the web revealed two in fact.  Being not a long walk we thought that a few more caches could be picked up during the drive back from the walk.   All this investigation and downloading data to the GPS ended up taking longer than expected, with the result that it was close to midday by the time we started walking.

After reaching the viewing platform at Pelverata Falls, we then commenced the ascent up the scree to the top of the falls.  A lunch stop in the sun on the way up of course took a bit of time, plus the distance up the scree was longer than our memories, which meant there was not really sufficient time to venture as far as Slippery Falls.

And of course by the time we got back to the car the idea of stopping for further caches had been wiped from the agenda
