South West Tasmania Horizontal Scrub

June 24, 2020

South West Tasmania Horizontal Scrub

“There is a plant in south west Tasmania called horizontal scrub. It’s called that because it grows up vertically and falls down horizontally, then more shoots sprout up from those horizontal branches. So not very friendly to bushwalkers. I’m down in south west Tassie looking for an old track and I’ve just spent about 20 minutes in the horizontal scrub… crawling my way through… to no avail. On the way back my GPS said I was 20 metres away and 7 minutes later I was back on the track.

 

 

I was wearing Mont thermals top and bottom, Mojo shorts and latitude waterproof trousers. I was too hot to wear the Odyssey jacket but it was in my pack. The video was made traversing Horizontal Scrub in SW Tasmania. It’s fairly slow travel…”

Bushwalkers Weather Alert! By Geoff Murray

October 20, 2021

I had planned to walk into one of my favourite areas again, the Walls of Jerusalem but on the morning that I intended to head in, the Bureau of Meteorology issued a Bushwalker’s Weather Alert. This didn’t match with what my preferred forecast program Windy said and I have found that program to generally be very accurate. So I started the climb up towards Trappers Hut with a sense of curiosity to see what the day would bring.

Choosing a New Tent. By Ben Wilkinson

October 14, 2021

Choosing a new tent is one of those moments that calls for serious research. It's a big decision, and a potentially risky one, if you get it wrong you may have to live with the consequences for a long time. I live in Tasmania and love exploring wilderness Alpine regions, especially winter camping.

So, my non-negotiables in a tent are it being waterproof, that's #1, then weight and space. Ok, looks play a part, but they are a bonus :)

An Explosion of Colour and Life. By Leann Geach

“We are so lucky to live in the bush capital. Getting out in nature is good for the soul and the mind. Especially when greeted with an explosion of colour and life around every corner. Yesterday I spotted or heard 23 bird species, frogs loud and proud, kangaroos with little heads poking from pouches, ants repairing holes...”
