Mt. Maroon

Date: 13/08/2014

Mt. Maroon is part of the Mt. Barney N.P. and is located near Rathdowney, South of Brisbane. The Ekka holiday was once again upon us and, as usual, rather than deal with the hordes at the show I decided to head out for a walk. Mt. Maroon provides stunning views over the district and some of the most interesting geological formations in S.E. Queensland.

Weekend at Binna Burra

Back in May, Maree and I spent the weekend at Binna Burra. The weather wasn't that great, but we still managed to fit in the Cave's Circuit (highly recommended) and a small circuit out along the Border Track. These are a few images from the weekend.

Banff Mountain Film Festival: Radical Reels

Dates for the Banff Mountain Film Festival: Radical Reels Tour were announced last week.

"Designed to keep audiences on the edges of their seats, the films feature daring footage of some of the most accomplished climbers, paddlers, BASE jumpers, skiers, snowboarders and mountain-bike riders alive today. Each action-packed short has been hand-picked from more than 300 entries to the most recent Banff Mountain Festival (the largest and most prestigious mountain-adventure, -culture and -exploration festival in the world)."

We attended the standard Banff Mountain Film Festival Roadshow earlier in the year and had an amazing night. The quality of the films was stunning and anyone that enjoys outdoor activities will no-doubt be blown away.

The dates for Brisbane are:
  • Tuesday 18 November
  • Wednesday 19 November
  • Thursday 20 November
  • Friday 21 November
The Brisbane Powerhouse is a great venue so be sure not to miss out.

Winter Update

I hope everyone is making the most of the best time of year to get out bushwalking in S.E. Queensland? This time of year is particularly good to head out to the Main Range and Moogerah Peaks National Parks where the often exposed terrain can be draining in the summer heat.
