Stinson Walk

14th to the 17th of August

During a stormy afternoon on 19 February, 1937, the Stinson airliner on route from Brisbane to Sydney crashed into the Lamington Ranges killing four of the seven passengers on board, sparking a search that failed to turn up any wreckage. Ten days later, Bernard O'Reilly set out on foot to find the Stinson wreckage. He managed to find the crash site and to his surprise, two survivors in desperate need of medical attention.

This year they commemorate the 76 years of the Stinson rescue. Join them as they retrace Bernard O'Reilly's famous journey through the rainforest as he searched for the survivors. This walk is a difficult walk and a certain level of fitness is required.
