I’ve just added a new trip report from our journey through the Little River Gorge in East Gippsland. Not quite canyoning and not quick bush walking. Maybe we need a new hybrid canyon walking or something like that. Anyway check it out here.
I just won this!!!
Thanks Wild Magazine. I look forward to putting the prizes to good use.
The winter escape is planned. Rec leave is booked and the countdown has begun. I’m off to Hinchinbrook Island to walk the Thorsborne Trail in a less than 10 days and looking forward to soaking in the sun. Watch this space for a new trip report soon. I know it’s a world renowned walk but I’m expecting it to be completely different to my usual bushwalking fair. Four days to hike 30km and a lot of this distance along beaches means I can afford to take a few more luxuries. Can’t wait!
Signage seems to be everywhere you go these days. Recently at Wilsons Prom I came across some strange ones. 5 Mile Beach is remote. We are talking about a 16km walk in to just to reach it. Is there a need to have a sign stating the obvious – that the beach is not patrolled by life guards. Has risk management gone too far? It is a sad state of affairs when land managers absolve themselves of responsibility by erecting a sign but is there a need for the bloody obvious? Most probably a sign of our increasing litigious society. Surely people need to take some personal responsibility. I think New Zealand has go this right on.
Unfortunately there is not a lot of video as I had issues with the SD card. Enjoy!
Be sure to check out the trip report as well.
Notes from my Easter trip to The Pilot and a traverse across the Cobberas Range are now complete. Check them out along with a short video.
