Six mates, a mountain camp, sub-zero temperatures and some rather chilly swims!

Over the June long weekend I went for a leisurely stroll through the Grampians in Victoria with a school mate Josh and his brother. Neither Josh or I had hiked there before, so in the end we picked the hike with the toughest description that formed a loop – and man we picked well! The Major Mitchell Plateau walk climbs from the bottom of a valley up a long but […]
On the Canberra Day long weekend four friends and I headed out for a three day stroll from Round Mountain to Mt Jagungal following the route described on Greg’s Walks Blog. For three of us it was set to be a relatively leisurely stroll with hills, and swims and lots of chats. For the other two it was set to be a three day run with some side trips to […]
Over the Easter weekend Rose and I went on a few little micro-adventures. The biggest micro-adventure was from Charlottes Pass up to Mt Twynam and back, while we also ducked out to my favourite rock in the Brindabellas. Google made a movie of it for me. Thanks Google!

It is stupendously well built and managed track that is a cool collaboration between landowners and public bodies.

Update: Corang Lagoon is now closed to the public as it is on private land. Canberrans are lucky enough to have two long weekends in a row over the end of September start of October. For the Family and Communities Day weekend Alex, Rose and I decided to head out into the Budawangs for a Bushwalk. Originally we’d planned on heading into the eastern side of the Budawangs but luckily […]
Last week three mates and I headed out to Blue Lake in Kosciusko National Park for a five days of snowshoeing, igloo building, relaxation and for Dom and Stu some ice climbing. The trip was dreamed up during our Davies Canyon trip in January and as we all now hail from very different parts of the country there was a huge volume of messages shared in the planning and lead […]
Last weekend was the long weekend in NSW and the ACT so a group mates from high school and I decided we would head out on adventure. Despite my many years of sporadic hiking and adventures I had never made it out there before so this was set to be a great weekend. The week prior to out adventures an east coast low had absolutely smashed the area, which was […]
