The wild and crazy west - bushwalking on the Bibbubulum Track from Bow Bridge to Denmark
The forest smells of sun-warmed rain. The trees by the track drip with water. It wets my boots and I feel damp leaves against my bare arms.  The path winds between twisted, low gum trees. But, this kind of track walking makes me look inwards more than outwa...

Blithely a bush boy wanders on a walk -
Shaking with joy, joyous in heart and limb:
For his delight the trees have learned to talk
And all the flowers have little laughs with him
Watching the far sky, wonderful and dim…
The sun is up, and Death is far away:
The first hour is the sweetest of the day.

Steep Drop Falls - two hundred years of wonder

#WildMagazine is looking pretty good these days with a new publisher. We were lucky enough to get a piece in the latest issue, out now...track notes for the beautiful (and fairly new) Waleka Walk along #KatherineGorge, #Nitmiluk National Park in the NT. We really loved the way this walk got us out of the tourist hub to some truly spectacular and quiet campsites. Would highly recommend it.
