It’s been hugely satisfying attempting the Abels with Gemma the last few months and a little while ago we ticked off the sibling of Mount Field West, which we had climbed previously on a sweltering day. The day we ventured up to Mount Field East was thankfully a little cooler, albeit not by much. You … More Mount Field East
Ah the Southwest, it’s a place that gets me all emotional just thinking about it. I remember the first time we drove past Maydena and entered the Southwest National Park. The misty peaks came into view on either side of the road and the vistas would burst into view and just completely blow your mind … More The Needles
This was quite possibly the toughest day walk yet, 19km of pure slog, completely exposed the entire way and underneath a sun that just would not quit. Don’t let that put you off though, it was a glorious walk! We started at the Lake Dobson carpark, walking up through the Snowgum Track before briefly joining … More Mount Field West, the struggle is real.
SING ALONG EVERYBODY 🙂 Every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you That is how I know you, go on Far across the distance And spaces between us You have come to show you, go on Near, far, wherever you are I believe that the Hartz does go on Once more you … More My Hartz will go on
Last weekend was Gemma’s birthday and to celebrate, we went on a spot of adventuring. The initial plan had been to do a part of the Overland Track, namely climbing Mount Ossa, Tasmania’s highest peak and exploring the surrounds. That has been put on the back burner for another day. Plan B was to hike … More Mountains, Waterfalls and Unattainable Lakes
It’s been a bit of a hiatus between adventures after poor Gemma was unwell for a bit. The itch to get out and explore more of Tassie was at last scratched last weekend, as we took a trip South……waaaaaaaay South. Pretty much as far South as you can possibly go in Australia to be precise. … More South Cape Bay
First off, what an epic name for a mountain range… the Sentinels. The name is pretty apt too, as when they first come into view around the bend, you can’t help but say “wow” as I did the first time I saw it earlier this year. I didn’t think I’d get a chance to climb … More Climbing the Sentinels
It’s been almost two years since I first set foot on Tasmanian soil. I’ve had the immense privilege of seeing some of this island’s most picturesque and beautiful sights. Putting a top 10 together has not been easy as it means omitting a place that is no less amazing than those featured here. The scariest … More My top 10 sights in Tasmania (so far)
Aaaah the road, getting out of the city and into the wilderness, is there anything better? The road to the Gordon Dam is certainly a road trip to savour with so many breathtaking vistas along the way. The first of these came as we approached Lake Pedder and the forest around us suddenly gave way … More Southwest Tasmania
These Instameets keep getting better and better! For our latest adventure we headed to the south of Tasmania. Our first port of call was the exceedingly delightful Chapel Lane Hall, a former church with over 100 years of history under its roof. The space has been lovingly converted into self-contained accommodation with tasteful touches and … More Far South Instameet: Trains, caves and a nice cup of tea.
