Some of Our Favourite Photos from 2020

In a year where many of us spent large periods stuck at home, the adventures that have been possible are so much more important. Here we present just some of our favourite photos from this year courtesy of our customers, Mont Ambassadors and Mont staff.

If you've got photos of Mont gear in action along with an adventure story that you'd like to see on the Mont Blog please do not hesitate to send it mont@mont.com.au for review.

Snow at Stockyard Spur, ACT. By Alex Orme

“Last-minute plans on Sunday night called for an impromptu day trip on Monday searching for skiable snow in the ACT. Stockyard Spur had just been reopened after its closure due to the ACT's devastating summer bushfires. The walk starts at the base of Corin Dam and heads up towards the peak of Mt Gingera. With an elevation of 1855m, this was the perfect location for our trip. I wasn’t optimistic about the snow coverage so opted to hike up with snowshoes instead of skis, but that didn’t deter Mel and Steve from bringing theirs.”

Thanks to Mont staff member Alex.

Mont Tents near Brandy Flat in the ACT. By Kirsten Schultz

“We had quite the collection of Mont tents out in force this weekend. I think we had just about every tent ticked off!

We were basically a walking Mont catalogue featuring every single female wearing Flashpoint Pants at some point through the trip!”

Thanks to Mont staff member Kirsten.


“Tofana di Rozes after climbing the Via Costantini-Apollonio, a classic but desperate 22 pitch grade 23 and we still weren't quite on the summit.”

Thanks to Mont Ambassador Chris Warner.

“Thought you might like to see these if you love the Snowy Mountains as much as I do. Here’s a painting (1.5mx0.5m) of the view from the top of Mt Townsend looking west over the Geehi Valley (in daylight). It’s one of 4 paintings totalling about 340 degrees. The second painting looks east towards Charlotte Pass on the left and Rawsons Gap to the right.”

Thank you to Mark Cambourn for sharing his spectacular landscapes with us. We do love the Snowy Mountains, but the artistry of these pieces is proof that your love is extraordinary!

“Heading up Hotham we couldn’t believe two things. 1. We were allowed out to camp after having the Mont Dragonfly Tent during a month of corona lockdown restrictions and unable to try it. 2. That we made it up and over Hotham given how much snow there was... and low!”

“I was setting up camp at my chosen spot as the sun neared the horizon. Horizon is a bit of a misnomer as it was actually nearing the ridge on a significant lump of rock (mountain) to my west, so it was well before real sunset.

The light was truly magical as a cloud over the aforementioned mountain allowed a narrow band of light to shine on the pencil pines on the far side of the tarn where I was camped.”

Thanks to Mont Ambassador Geoff Murray for this shot from Walls of Jerusalem National Park, Tasmania earlier this month.

Australian longicorn borers are known worldwide for their ability to aggressively infest eucalypt plantations. In Australia, too, longicorn outbreaks have struck plantations in Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland. By contrast, outbreaks of longicorns are rare in native eucalypt forests. Why? Well, it’s not clear, but the current theory is that to be successful, longicorn populations must develop in forests that are persistently drought-stressed. In plantations, a single species is often planted over a varying landscape that is, in some cases, too dry. Native eucalypt forests, however, generally comprise numerous species leading to a patterned landscape of species that is more resilient to stress.

Over the last couple of days I have had a couple of short forays into Mount Field National Park. This magnificent park has landscapes that range from temperate rainforest with beautiful waterfalls to extensive alpine areas with some stunning mountain topography. Mount Field National Park, along with Freycinet National Park, were both declared national parks in 1916, making them the oldest national parks in Tasmania.
