2019-05-25 Illinbah Circuit

2019-05-25 Illinbah CircuitWalkers: Colin (leader), Werner, Christine D, John, Pamela S, Cassie, Melanie, Bruce

Distance: 19.4k

A clear, bright, cool day.  Perfect for an attack on Illinbah Circuit, one we haven't done since 2014 due to closures.

A slow first half as we gingerly navigated all the Coomera River crossings.  We managed to get through unscathed and dry with no-one falling in.

All agreed that this is a wonderful walk and deserves a place on the calendar every year - Colin

2019-05-11 Mt MaroonWalkers: Colin (leader), Werner & Vangie, Pam S, Pam D, John, Paul

Distance: 6.7k

A clear, bright, warm day.  Perfect for an ascent up Mt Maroon and perfect for 360 degree vistas of the mighty Moogerah Peaks from the summit.

We quickly found out that to get to the caves would have to be left to a specific walk in the future.  We saw clear glimpses of them on the way in.  

A popular spot now as we saw dozens of walkers and a couple of climbers who had just completed the ascent.

Distance: 13.3k

A fabulous walk that had everything. Must go on the calendar as a regular walk for us. Beautiful company and Pamela Davis said, lots of laughs and fun.

This was a walk not to be missed and all thoroughly enjoyed the variety of scenery, the rain showers and the bush bashing requiring navigation skills.

We all met up at O'Reilly's Car park just before 8 am and set off to do our walk. The Border Track entrance was closed for maintenance and signs directed us to go along the Booyong Boardwalk and then back onto the track just past the Botanic Gardens.

Lots of wildlife with red bellied blacks, eels, goanas and spiders.

2019-02-09 The Peaks

Walkers: Michele (leader), Julie, Christine D, Pamela,Gary, Paul, Werner, John, Colin

Distance: 26.3

A magnicent long haul today.  The views from all of the lookouts were spectacular.  Leeches were a problem as usual for all of us and Christine this time suffered the worst.  Thanks to Gary and Michele who provided an overnight stay for an early start, and of course the now traditional delicious chocolate cake washed down with coffee and tea.  A spectacular weekend of walking which incorporated a short walk to Denham Scenic Reserve.

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life. The Way of Natural History, edited by Thomas Lowe Fleischner and published by Trinity University Press (Texas)
