I loved this walk. I had never been that interested in this walk as I'd always wanted to head up onto the main range or out into the Jugungal wilderness. But recently the Federal Government announced $10 million to fund the establishment of a Jindabyne to Dead Horse Gap walk (and another from the main range, via Charlotte Pass to Crackenback), and I just had to find out what it was all about. I think once the longer walk is up and running, it will be one that every walker wants to do. Perhaps the beginnings of an iconic Australian walking track? I think so...
I recently travelled to Ariah Park in NSW for the Mary Gilmore Festival. Whilst there, I head a short distance out of town and di this great heritage walk. Only a few kilometres in distance, such an informative and enjoyable walk. If you're ever in this part of NSW, make sure you take two or three hours out of you schedule to do this walk. Details now on the website.
I spent yesterday walking in the Neverest Challenge on Mt Ainslie. A great event, but very gruelling. Our small team managed to complete the 53 laps (we actually got to 54 as my walking buddy Mike and I didn't want anyone to have to do the last lap alone). If you're looking for a well organised, fun, but gruelling event, Neverest is for you! Raising money to assist worthwhile projects in Nepal, such as re-building schools after the earthquakes.
