On Kunyani (Mount Wellington) today. Such a beautiful mountain so close to Hobart CBD.


Easily accessible wilderness so close to the capital city.

There is no need for the proposed cablecar.  To build such an eyesore is a travesty on this beautiful wilderness.  We must do no further damage to this forest and leave it undisturbed for future generations to enjoy.P2130136.jpg

Climate change is very apparent at Everest Base Camp.


The retreat of the Khumbu Glacier is a concerning and very apparent indicator of rapid climate change. The lower reaches of the glacier are shrinking every year. This is affecting villagers, wildlife and river flows. PA010546.jpg

Everest Base Camp.


Mount Everest with Everest Base camp in the foreground.

This place is so rich in history, stories of survival and death, the strength of the human spirit and great human courage. In particular the inspirational dedication, loyalty and utter dependability of the brave Sherpas, who made climbing Everest possible. I am drawn to return to the Khumbu, which I shall do in 2018.

Track to Wellington Falls on Mt Kunanyi. Hobart.


“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
 There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
 There is society, where none intrudes,
 By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
 I love not Man the less, but Nature more,
 From these our interviews, in which I steal
 From all I may be, or have been before,
 To mingle with the Universe, and feel
 What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.”―Byron, Childe Harold's PilgrimageDSC02347.jpg
