It’s long been a dream of mine to visit Iceland, from the first time I saw programmes about it on the TV I’ve been intrigued and fascinated by this place. In recent years, Iceland has exploded in popularity thanks in no small part to Instagram as well as Hollywood choosing it as the location for … More Iceland: The Wild West
Introducing Lachlan Sherwin Spencer, our little adventurer born at 4:41am on Wednesday 6th March 2019 weighing in at 2.93kg and 50cm long. It’s been the most amazing 3 days with him and I’ve never experienced happiness levels quite like this before. He is the best little thing! His mum has been amazing and so strong … More Czech out THIS little guy!
Ireland has a cable car. Yes…..Ireland. Something we’d oft associate with Switzerland or Austria or North America and other alpine places with proper mountains and genuine altitude that can leave you out of breath, exists on the little island where I was born. Which way do cable cars travel? Up right? And down again of … More Ireland: Dursey Island
Last week we had the opportunity to venture North once more and check out the Serengeti of Tasmania. It’s home to vast herds of Elephants, Wildebeest and Zebra roaming the expansive plains. That’s the Serengeti anyway. Narawntapu National Park is located east of the port city of Devonport where the Spirit of Tasmania brings ferry … More Supermodels of Narawntapu National Park
This trip almost didn’t happen. We’d been umming and uhhing all week, watching the weather forecast and praying for a miraculous change from the soggy prediction that was being made. When you’re hoping to climb Tasmania’s highest mountain, you kinda want to have a view. Hannah pushed us onward in the end and we decided … More Easter atop Tasmania
A few weeks ago we managed to tick off another three Abels, bringing me to the verge of double digits while getting to see some beautiful new sights in Tassie. The plan was to camp in Fingal as our base before climbing up Stack’s Bluff and then doing East Tower and Legges Tor the following … More Ben Lomond Adventures
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
The Tasman peninsula is renowned for its spectacular walks, mainly the coastal cliff walks that line its beautiful capes. Further inland however, there’s this little adventure in the woods, Clarks Cliffs. It’s an 8km walk through thick eucalypt forest that is at times tranquil and other times rather challenging. On the day we ventured into … More Clarks Cliffs
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.
Following on from the last post, we continued our East Coast birthday adventure further North just past Bicheno. Douglas Apsley National Park is home to a very popular watering hole a mere 5 minute walk from the car park. It’s certainly very nice (provided there aren’t a bunch of bogans playing loud music and smoking) … More Douglas Apsley National Park
