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 – 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.

TAS2020: The Walks – Crescent Bay

The Tasman Peninsula offers a wide range of walks with varying degrees of difficulty and ranging in length from 2 hours to 4 days (the three capes walk).

The Crescent Bay and Mount Brown walk appealed to us, so we set off from our campground at White Beach and headed for the carpark at start of the walk, which, to our surprise, was very busy on account of it being also the access to the Remarkable Cave.

TAS2020: The Walks – Mariotts Falls

Although this was not a particularly long walk it was presented a bit of variety in terms of vegetation, topography and ground conditions, which we were warned about by a fellow walker descending with his boots covered in mud. We had intended to complete this walk last year, but time was somewhat challenging. So, this year we made sure that we had plenty of time.
