I just posted my first hiking 'best of' compilation, with 12 of my favorites from Sydney's Blue Mountains. The link to my blog is in my bio. If you live in Sydney or are thinking about visiting the area then check it out for hiking ideas. The picture is from one of those walks, around the rim of the Grose Valley near Blackheath. . . . . . . . . #hikingscenery #hikingideas #hikerlife #hikingaddict #hikingadventure #hikinglife #greatwalks #bluemountainsaustralia #bluemountains #blackheath #katoomba #wentworthfalls #leura #hiking #hikes #bluemountainsnationalpark #bluemountainsnsw #mountains #waterfalls #valley 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia @australia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks @visitnsw @nswnationalparks 1 #ilovesydney @sydney 1 #bluemtsaus @bluemountainsaustralia at Govetts Leap

Looking down on Ferntree Gully, near Rylstone in NSW. It's a short but atmospheric walk through and above the gully. . . . . . . . . . 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks #nationalpark #nationalparks #rylstone #hikes #hiking #outdoors #landscape #mountainviews #gully #cliffs #rocks #Australia #nsw #Australianbush #centralwestnsw #hikingscenery at Ferntree Gully Reserve

On our way to the Warrumbungles a week or so ago we stopped at Dunns Swamp to do the short but scenic Pagoda Lookout Track. Lots of interesting rock pagodas and other fine views. Here's just one pic and I'll post others later. . . . . . . . . #hikingscenery 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks #dunnsswamp #wolleminationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #rocks #rockformation #pagoda #rylstone #hikes #hiking #outdoors #landscape #mountainviews #rockformations #Australia #nsw at Dunns Swamp

I liked this rather regimented line of grass trees near the summit of Mt Exmouth. The second frame has them in different lighting and from a different angle, with my wife Sophia for scale. She's quite handy for that. . . . . . . . . . 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks #warrumbungles #warrumbunglenationalpark #Australia #nsw #nature #naturalworld #naturelovers #plants #australianplants #grasstrees #grasstree #Australianbush #botany #flora #nationalpark #nationalparks #hiking #hikes #hikingadventure #bushwalkingnsw #hikeaustralia at Warrumbungle Mountains

The panoramic view from Macha Tor, on way to Grand High Tops in the Warrumbungles. Belougery Spire and the Breadknife in the first frame, and part of the big cliff face of Bluff Mountain in the last. This is a side trip of the main track on Goulds Circuit. Not sure if this works as a swipe panorama on Instagram. Looks better in wide format. . . . . . . #hikingscenery 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks #warrumbungles #breadknife #warrumbunglenationalpark #rock #rockformation #rockformations #cliffs #cliff #hiking #mountainviews #greatwalks #greathikes #Australia #nsw #bushwalkingnsw #australianlandscape #panorama at Warrumbungle Mountains

A few portrait shots of grass trees from on our way up Mt Exmouth in the Warrumbungles, NSW. There were more here than I've ever seen in my life, and they were fine specimens. They were almost all above 1000m and that made for a very pleasing final climb up to the summit (1206m). I'll post more later because I got carried away and took many pictures. . . . . . . . . 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks #warrumbungles #warrumbunglenationalpark #Australia #nsw #nature #naturalworld #naturelovers #plants #australianplants #grasstrees #grasstree #Australianbush #botany #flora #nationalpark #nationalparks #hiking #hikes #hikingadventure #bushwalkingnsw #hikeaustralia at Warrumbungle Mountains

A couple of shots of Crater Bluff from the Grand High Tops circuit. This was first climbed in the 30s by two climbers using minimal equipment, basically just a rope. The lead climber was a woman who hiked and climbed in bare feet. . . . . . . . . . #hikingscenery 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks #warrumbungles #warrumbunglenationalpark #rock #rockformation #rockformations #cliffs #cliff #hiking #mountainviews #mountains #landscape #greatwalks #greathikes #outdoors #Australia #nsw #bushwalkingnsw #australianlandscape at Warrumbungle Mountains

The classic view of the Bread Knife from Grand High Tops. The second and third pictures are close ups from along side it. Very red, and very sheer. It's a very cool rock but I think I prefer the view of Crater Bluff from the same spot. That shot to come. . . . . . . . . #breadknife #hikingscenery 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks #warrumbungles #warrumbunglenationalpark #rock #rockformation #rockformations #cliffs #cliff #hiking #mountainviews #mountains #landscape #greatwalks #greathikes #outdoors #Australia #nsw #bushwalkingnsw #australianlandscape at Warrumbungle Mountains

Sun rise on way to the Warrumbungles. Despite being up at 5am on the day daylight savings started (yesterday), which was really 4am, we couldn't quite make the start of our walk by sun rise. It was forecast to be very hot so we wanted to get most of the ascending done by late morning. Consolation was this view on the drive in, which looks like I painted it. #nofilter used mind you. . . . . . . . . 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia @australia @visitnsw @nswnationalparks 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks #tooraweenah #warrumbungles #warrumbunglenationalpark #nsw #Australia #sunrise Not a #sunset but similar #sky #colourfulsky #clouds #landscapephotography #landscape #landscapelighting #dawn #beautifulsky at Warrumbungle Mountains

The Warrumbungles from afar, taken at Tooraweena near where we are staying. We did an excellent walk up to the high point of the range, Mt Exmouth: those photos to come. In the second and third pictures are thickets of a very exotic plant that were growing by the side of the road, apparently doing very well in Australian conditions. . . . . . . . 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks #tooraweenah #warrumbungles #warrumbunglenationalpark #nsw #Australia #exoticplants #nature #naturelovers #naturalworld #plants #interestingplants at Tooraweenah

An echidna on the Fern Gully walk near Rylstone earlier today. My first time to get a face shot of these unique monotremes, as they usually bury their heads on approach, leaving just the spiny back as defence. Unfortunately these spines offered no defence as I drove over one tonight on our way up to the Warrumbungles. It made a wet splat sound which was most disconcerting. Not a #hedgehog ... . . . . . . . . 5 #bushwalking #bushwalks #bushwalk #discoveraustralia #seeaustralia @australia 2 #newsouthwales #nswparks @visitnsw @nswnationalparks 3 #wildlifeshots #wildlifelovers #naturalworld 1 #australianwildlife #echidna #monotreme #australiananimals #australiananimal #animals #cuteanimals #Australianbush #animal #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #nationalpark #nationalparks at Rylstone, New South Wales

A couple of waterfalls on the Split Rock portion of the Meander Falls circuit we did on our last day in Tasmania back in February. I've now posted a bunch of my photos together on my blog sorted by region. It's like my Instagram feed only organised, and might give you a few ideas where to go hiking in Aus/NZ (mainly).

I've added a new section to my blog: a selection of landscape photos organised by the main regions where I've done my hiking (mostly at the 'arse end' of the world). The link is in my bio. This shot is my wife Sophia descending from Brow Peak to Big Hill Saddle back in June. . . . . . . . . . . #arrowtownnz #Queenstown #lovearrowtown #arrowtown #queenstownlive #lovenz #lovenewzealand #newzealand #newzealandphotography #nz #southislandnz #tramping #bushwalking #hikerlife #hikinglife #hikingaddict #hikes #mountain #Mountains #hike #summit #mountainpeak #mountainpeaks #mountainphotography #bushwalks #mountainscenery #mountainviews #landscapephotography at Arrowtown

If you haven't been following @europeanpeaks on Instagram lately then you should check out his account: he's just climbed to the high point of every European country in one climbing season, a world record I believe. Everywhere from a back alleyway in Monaco to the summit of Elbrus in Russia, plus many other fabulous peaks and nondescript farmers fields in between. Not just a fabulous hiking achievement but a crazy logistical one as well. There are pics from each of his conquests plus a few bonus hikes on his account, and he's also raising funds for a charity, promoting the benefits of mountains and the outdoors for our mental health. (As a hiker and psychologist I can endorse this πŸ˜ƒ). My panorama (swipe ➑️) is from the mountain I've climbed the most, NZ's Ben Lomond, conveniently located on the edge of Queenstown. Taken in autumn 2017. . . . . . . . . 9 #tramping #travelnewzealand #destinationnz #nzmustdo #nzphotography #newzealandphotography #southisland #southislandnz #ig_newzealand #benlomond #Queenstown #queenstownlive #nz #newzealand #hiking #hikerlife #hikingaddict #peakbagging #peakbagger #peakbaggers #hikingadventure #mountainporn #mountainpeaks #mountainviews #trekking #mountains #mountain at Ben Lomond (Otago)
