The Spires and Denison Range

An adventure into true wilderness - March 2021 The Spires, ah, The Spires. I had dreamed of heading into this area of South West Tasmania for such a long time. I'm not exactly sure when I had first heard of this rough, off track walk but I can definitely remember...

Abbott’s and Marriott’s Lookout Day Trip MOVIE

This was a quick trip down to Maydena to pop up to Abbott's lookout, followed by a bit of a scrubby walk over to Marriott's lookout. Staying at Rathmore Farm the evening before, we drove down to Maydena and even managed a bike ride at Maydena Bike Park!...

The Southern Ranges – Movie

This was an epic few days in Tasmania's magnificent Southern Ranges. After a big couple of days walking in to Wylly Plateau, the final day provide a massive day in horrendous weather..... https://youtu.be/FyS9tXGicX0

The Southern Ranges 2020

I have spent a heck of a lot of time in Southern and South West Tassie but for some reason I had never walked the Southern Ranges between Precipitous Bluff (PB) and Lune River. Sure, I’d been up PB from New River Lagoon in a day trip back on the South West Epic but I’d never actually done the whole Southern Ranges walk. It had been an itch I had been trying to scratch for a long time.

Wentworth Hills

12th October 2019 We had been having a good year escaping to the mountains and Crawf, Woolza and I found another opportune weekend in which to embark upon another Abel Adventure in October. I had the idea a while back that it would be nice to setup a base at the old...

Wild Dog Tier

Wild Dog Tier

31st August 2019   Well, this one had been on the ‘aiming to do list’ for some time. Back in January 2018, Crawf and I had attempted a very quick overnighter walk to Wild Dog Tier (one evening after work) from the north via Dixons Track. On that occasion we had fallen...

Adamsons Peak – July 2019

Adamsons Peak – July 2019

Middle of winter in Tasmania means there is little time for Abels. However, this has never put me off and on a work trip to Hobart I found an opportunity at the end of July. I had freed up a day mid week and roped in Ferg and Troy (Hobartian mates) to join me for the...
