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


Thursday, January 27, 2011


A beautiful Australia Day and a short ramble in Brisbane Forest Park. It is hard to believe that this rugged forrest is right in the centre of a metropolitan city of 2 million people.  Brisbane lived up to its name as the " River City" in the recent floods and yes we are reminded now that the city is built on a flood plain with the meandering brisbane river winding through the city 25 km from the sea.

But in this centre are some small ranges which lead to the D'Aguilar Range and which were formerly prized by the timber millers but are now preserved as recreational areas.

The rains have made normally dry creeks to run and the dry open forest is a colour green
