It's called Rambling in Britain, Bush Walking in Australia, Tramping in NZ and Hiking in America.

Whatever it's called, welcome to my blog which is simply about journeys and life..... It shares stories, tales and thoughts, in prose, verse, photo and video. WALK ON RAMBLER

We spent Easter in a beautiful river valley at Barrington Tops in central eastern NSW..

The area has added significance in that it was the country of my pioneer relatives. I guess I have never really been particularly interested in that family history even though I had a sketchy knowlege of it.. Holidaying in that area for a short time, gazing at the rugged mountains of the area brought fleeting thoughts to those early settlers, timber getters, gold miners.

The area was green and lush from recent rain and the rivers were flowing strongly. the actual Barrington Tops national Park is one of a series of rainforest parks and reserves included on the World heritage list as the Godwana Rainforests of Australia.

Steep ridges rise from near sea level to over 1500 metres and many wild streams flow from these heights.

There are beautiful Open Eucalypt forests in the foothills, rainforest and waterfalls on the slopes and snow gums on the tops.
