VIC2021: The Walks – Rollasons Falls Track

Having completed the Eurobin Falls Track earlier in the morning, my next stop 6 km up Mount Buffalo Road was the Rollasons Falls Track. This was listed as 1.9 km to the lower falls and 2 km tom the upper falls. In actual fact if you walk to both the total distance is 2.5 km. The Mount Buffalo National Park visitors guide advises that there is a short steep section at the end. This, in my opinion, is a bit of an understatement with regard to both ‘short’ and ‘at the end’.

VIC2021: The Walks – Eurobin Falls

After a sleepless freezing cold night camping at Smoko Campground near Bright, I set out for Mount Buffalo National Park to tackle a couple of walks, the first of which was Eurobin Falls (yes, another waterfall to photograph is a good incentive to put on the hiking boots). After clear skies during the night, which enabled me to have a go at photographing the milky way at 5 o’clock in the morning, the day started overcast and deteriorated from there.

VIC2021: The Walks – Tipperary Springs

My partner and I first discovered this walk a year ago and decided it would be a good one for us to lead one of the Gisborne Bushwalking Club organised walks. After a couple of subsequent of pre-walks, we finalised the route that fitted the broad club criteria – around 14 km and 5 hours including breaks. Of course, the one thing we could not plan for was the weather.

VIC2021: Toolangi

With Easter weekend approaching, we decided to get away for a couple of nights, the main reason being to visit Healesville Sanctuary. Realising that this is traditionally a busy weekend, we opted for leaving on the Thursday to beat the rush and headed for Toolangi – the nearest free campground to Healesville. Never having been there before, we were pleasantly surprised with what we found.

VIC2021: The Walks – Cumberland River

It was with great expectations of a couple of good walks that we set out for a two night stay in a Lorne hotel that had been booked a year previously, but had been postponed twice due to Covid 19. Arriving on a wet and rainy Saturday afternoon, we planned our 8.6km circuit walk for the next day that would take in three waterfalls. However, our plans unravelled very quickly when we arrived at the setting off point, Allenvale Mill Car Park.

VIC2021: The Walks – Murrindindi River Cascades

Having completed the Boroondara Track in the Murrindindi Scenic Reserve and our walking club colleagues having left to drive home, we decided to take an early evening drive from our campground to the Cascades, about 10 minute ascending drive to the south, where there is a short walk from the Picnic Area to the rather impressive Cascades. However, having completed the walk, I think it would be better described as a climb!

TAS2020: The Walks – Leven Canyon

Two days before we were due to leave Tasmania we had booked into a log cabin on a nature reserve off Loongana Road close to Leven Canyon, so we planned to spend out last full day exploring the walks in the Canyon. There are two starting points for three walks: one to two lookouts and one to the canyon floor. Our plan was to walk to the lookouts in the morning, return to the cabin for lunch and drive back for the canyon floor walk. As it happened, we did all three in the morning.

TAS2020: The Walks – Wineglass Bay & Hazards Beach Circuit

Setting out from Bicheno at 08:00 in an attempt to beat the crowds on our planned walk to Wineglass Bay on Freycinet Peninsula, we arrived at an almost empty the car park and were walking by 09:00. I completed this walk in 2019 and decided to leave my camera behind for two reasons: I has previously taken quite a few photos (as presented below) and I wanted to travel as lightly as possible, knowing how tiring the last leg of the walk was the last time!

TAS2020: The Walks – The Fluted Cape

We arrived on Bruny Island on the 09:30 ferry with the intention of a quick drive around the north end of the island before completing our journey to the campsite at the southern end. Since we had the whole day, we decided to tackle at least one walk on the way. Our selected walk was the Fluted Cape walk.
