The lack of reports since June 2015 could be taken as evidence that the Cartophiles haven’t been very active.  In fact, it just demonstrates that walking has been a higher priority than writing.  Here’s a quick summary of the walks we did in the second half of 2015 but never reported on:

Wondabyne Station to Kariong Brook Waterfall, Saturday 16th May, 2015

Just three of us, walking in the drizzle!
