August 2003 field day - Lawson
It was a superb sunny winter's day for our walk down Empire Pass at Lawson on Saturday, 2nd August. Despite delays caused by railway work which necessitated a bus ride from Central to Penrith, the walk got under way by 11.20am.

Sites visited included Fairy Falls, Dantes Glen and Frederica Falls. All 16 of us were impressed by the gorge below Dantes Glen and the superb rainforest vegetation which had escaped the summer 2001/02 fires. Muriel told us of her family's visits to the area over 40 years ago when glow-worms could be seen beneath the falls.
