Photo of the Week – Paul and Bridgett

It’s been a while between posts, but over the next few weeks I’ll try and post a few images from my recent outings. This one was something a bit different for me. My good friends Paul and Bridgett recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary. Bridgett contacted me on the sly to help organise a surprise photo shoot for them at one of their favourite spots: Browns Falls.

She wanted to get dressed up in their wedding clothes and have a bit of fun under the falls. In the end the water was too cold, but we still got some great shots and had a fun day out. This is one of my favourites.

Paul & BridgettI also had time for a landscape shot of the falls. Something I’ve wanted another crack at since our last visit. Browns Falls

It really is a gorgeous spot. You can check out my previous post about the “Waterfalls Drive” here. It is a great day out.

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. Continue reading

Hardings Paddock Picnic Area

Date: 14 Aug 2013
Having been very busy working on the house recently I was glad to get out for a leisurely walk on the Ekka public holiday. Maree gave me the idea of heading to the Hardings Paddock picnic area within the Flinders-Goolman Conservation Estate as she was out there last week for work. We had previously done the Flinders Peak walk and at the time noted some of the other smaller peaks in the region but never had a chance to go back.

Mt. Edwards

Date: 24 October 2010

Walkers: Maree, Myself

Mt. Edwards is located in the Moogerah Peaks National Park near Aratula. We arrived at the picnic area at the base of the mountain next to the Moogerah Damn at around 8:45 in the morning. Temperatures had been reasonably high over the last few days so we wanted to get going reasonably early. The track started on the other side of the dam wall which is open to the public to walk across during the day.

Mt. Barney South Ridge

Date: 28 – 29 August 2010

Walkers: Tom, Myself

This walk was planned as a further test of some new gear and to do a long overdue investigation of Mt. Barney N.P. The route I had planned was to walk out along the Cronan Creek track as far as it went and then head back and camp at one of the walk in sites along the creek before tackling the mountain the next day.

Mt. Mitchell

Date: 22 August 2010

Walkers: Maree, Myself

After considering a few options south of Brisbane for a day walk we decided on something starting at Cunningham’s Gap in the Main Range National Park. The drive took about 1 hour from Ipswich to Cunningham’s Gap where we parked then crossed the highway to start the walk to the twin peaks of Mt. Mitchell. Continue reading
