Mont Shop manager Leann and her family walked the Budawangs twice over summer and are going back for more as soon as they can.
“Both trips started out warm and sunny and we witnessed the area recovering from the previous summer's fires, we saw and heard many lyrebirds, and found an awesome swimming hole. However, each time we approached the part with the best views, the weather turned and we had to settle for waterfalls and enormous vague shapes in the mist. Determined to get the views, we are going back again soon hoping for 3rd time lucky.”
Leann is a highly experienced multi-day bushwalker with first-hand advice on the best gear and best practice for hiking, lightweight camping and climbing. Contact us or visit Mont in Canberra for all your adventure gear needs, expert advice and local knowledge.

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 :)

I first visited Iceland in 2012 on my way to East Greenland. My time in Iceland on this first trip included driving around the Ring Road, the road that circumnavigates this incredible country. Since then I have been privileged to fly into Reykjavik’s airport, Keflavik, a further 5 times.
