After a trip lasting a month a party of Wolf Cubs under Cubmaster C. L. Ward has just returned to Hornsby. The ages of these lads ranged from nine to twelve years. Whilst in Tasmania they visited Mount Wellington, the Salmon Ponds, National Park, Russell Falls, New Norfolk, and the Derwent Valley. A week was spent at Eaglehawk Neck, and visits were made to Port Arthur,the Blowhole, Devil’s Kitchen, and Tasman’s Arch. Launceston was also visited, the Gorge andhydro-electric works leaving a great impression with the boys. The party consisted of 14 Wolf Cubs, three Scouts, and four Rovers, including the cubmaster.
