A Main Range Adventure

A Main Range Adventure

Main Range track 21.11.20 – 12.10.20 Distance: 24km Location: Kosciuszko National Park Time: 2 days For most Aussies, Kosciuszko is the site of an underwhelming school trip where teachers trek you up the highest mountain in Australia as part of the year six curriculum. Luckily, I somehow […]

Pindar Cave Camping

Woy Woy to Wondabyne via Pindar Caves 17.10.20 – 18.10.20 Distance: 21.3km Location: Brisbane Waters Time: 2 days What better way to christen Amanda’s new pack on her very first hike than with two days slogging up fire trails and a night spent in Pindar Caves? […]

Things to do in Canberra

Things to do in Canberra

02.10.2020 – 04.10.2020 Early last month, I made the most of the long weekend and the fact that COVID restrictions had lifted just enough, and escaped Sydney for the white pavement and green hills of Canberra. Contrary to its stereotype, Canberra is far from boring. […]

Photo Diary 13.12.19 – 17.12.19 For Christmas, and to coincide with two Overland hikes, my parents shipped the family out to Hobart. We spent four days exploring the Salamanca Markets, drinking at Cascade Brewery, getting confused at MONA, eating incredible steak at Landscape and hiking […]

Photo Diary 06.12.19 – 11.12.19 This month, Alice and I embarked upon a trek from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair in Tasmania. We planned to trade bushfire smoke for crisp mountain air, abandoning Sydney stress for six days of nothing but walking. Despite being […]

2018 Recap

2018 Recap

Alternatively: Everything I Learned in a Year I’ve lost track of how many blog posts I’ve written in the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, making use of the free wifi and perched on one of the several surprisingly uncomfortable chairs (seriously how difficult is it […]
