Friends of Saint Helena Crater

This page contains dates for working bees at the crater. Due to the 2½ hour walk in and out, it is felt that overnight camps provide the best way to get a substantial hunk of work done.

Closest route from a railway station is Blaxland via Ross Crescent and the Bullant track (6.4km). Closest route by car is parking at Martins Lookout via Bunyan Lookout via the Kings Link track (4.5km). Glenbrook station via the Duck Hole is 7.3km. The easiest walk in is the 11.5km from the Woodford gate, and most definitely the easiest walk out.
