Article: Bushwalking Tips


It’s amazing how many things you don’t think about when planning a bushwalk and/or trek. Some of the most basic things often slip your mind. I’m looking at a possible trip away very soon and I need to hit the planning side of things very soon or it will be too late.

The link below is to an article that provides some useful tips for planning and enjoying your bushwalk and camping trip.

Next Trip: Back to Trekking


With the road trip now done and the car returned to Budget (rental), my thoughts have turned to my next holiday. I have a few road trip style adventures in the works, but my next holiday is likely to be a trekking adventure.

In the past I have twice walked across the Barrington Tops, completing the ‘Tops to Myall Heritage walk’ section as far as the township of Craven. I now plan to do the second section of the walk, from Craven to Hawks Nest – not far from where I now live. This has been something I have wanted to do for some time and now I intend to actually complete it.

There is no intended date at this stage, though I would hope to do it well before the end of this year. I would think it likely to be towards the early part of the second half of the year – if that makes sense.

Prior to setting out on this trek, I will be looking to update some of my gear (most of which has vanished in recent moves). I will be looking at a new tent and a sleeping bag for starters, as well as a new back pack. I’m sure there will be a few other things I will need to acquire before I set off as well.

Planning for this trip can all be followed on this Blog… stay tuned for further developments.

BARRINGTON TOPS TREKS – OCTOBER 1996 AND 2003


On several occasions I have been able to walk across the Barrington Tops in New South Wales, Australia.
