Walks

This is a blog of all the bushwalks I have written about. This is a constant work in progress and I’m always adding more notes of past walks.

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...

Abbotts and Marriotts Lookouts

Abbotts and Marriotts Lookouts

May 2019 We had planned this little sojourn a couple of months prior. Crawf had spotted a free Saturday in his calendar and had asked whether or not a couple of us were keen to join him for a trip to the third shortest and the shortest Abel - Abbotts Lookout and...

Tower Hills (East and West Towers)

Tower Hills (East and West Towers)

I had been thinking about the 'two towers' for some time and I must say, with some trepidation. Mates had done the peaks previously and didn't describe them favourably. By all accounts, getting out to the West Tower was a scrub bash in an area that didn't particularly...

Mt Saddleback

Mt Saddleback

  To my great satisfaction, 2019 was shaping up to be a year of Abelling. With winter fast approaching I was keen to get a few more out of the way before the cold came and daylight savings ended. So, Woolza and I found a Thursday evening available and headed out...

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...
