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...

Mt Maurice

A day walk to my last Abel in the North East For nearly 4 years I had been trying to find just a few hours to sneak out of town to go and race up Mt Maurice. Many of the trip reports made the access in to the two track options sound pretty average and I guess this is...

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.

A few days of Adventure – Movie

A few days of Adventure – Movie

Each year a few of us head out on 'Adventure Weekend'. This year prior to the annual weekend, Beaui and I found a few extra days to knock off a few peaks around the north of the state. The original plan was to head south but with bush fires raging, we played it safe...

Ragged Jack

Ragged Jack

From Launceston, Ragged Jack stands prominently by Ben Lomond's side. It's an obvious and pretty 'bad ass' looking peak that has always enticed me. But until now, I had never ventured up it. Well, the opportunity had arisen. I had most of the day to spare so dropped...

Quamby Bluff – 26th Feb 2019

Quamby Bluff – 26th Feb 2019

  To the disbelief of most of my friends, I had never attempted or completed a walk up Quamby Bluff. I had gazed on it so many times from various vantage points and other walks but never found the time to stop off on my way through the lakes to do the short day walk....

Off Track Scrub Bash 2018

Off Track Scrub Bash 2018

This walk, or elements of it, had been on the 'to do' list for a while. I was keen to do a trip involving climbs of Mt Cuvier, Mt Manfred and Mt Byron - I had spent many overland track trips ending with the ferry ride across Lake St Clair gazing up at these peaks....

Parson and Clerk Mountain

Parson and Clerk Mountain

It was a Friday afternoon when Crawf put the call out for this one. I didn't have much planned for the weekend and Crawf sends an email out 'who's keen to come for a jog up Parson and Clerk Mountain tomorrow?'. My instant answer - 'i'm in'. Turns out I was the only...

Sandbanks Tier

Sandbanks Tier

  I had a free weekday morning, so after school drop offs I hit the road and was on my way towards Poatina. After an hour I was at the start of the route up to Sandbanks Tier. It was a cool day, with drizzle rolling through but after about 5 minutes into the walk...

Mt Victoria and Mt Albert

Mt Victoria and Mt Albert

  Woolza and I found a quick window of opportunity to sneak out for one last summer mid-week overnighter. Thursday afternoon at about 4pm, we departed Launceston and headed to the North East via Targa through the forestry roads to start of the Mt Victoria track. We...
