2015-01-10 Mt Tamborine RambleOur first walk of the year was a very social affair with John taking us on a wander over his favourite local walks on Tamborine Mountain.  It was an opportunity to say hello to everyone after the Christmas New Year break.  Just outside John’s door is a short walk created by the local council which took us to the bottom of Ohia Court.  From there we made our way to and through the Botanic Gardens on our way to various sections of the National Park.

 

Report

There was some high cloud cover which protected us from the hot sun but which threatened rain.  Our main objective was to make our way over to the Palm Grove Section where walkers could decide either to do a longer walk or a shorter walk.  

Recent good rains had prompted good fungus blooms and Julie go many photos of this.  After walking some time we stopped at a junction where John the walking party would split and John would take the short walk people on their walk while the rest of us continued on a longer walk.  

We stopped for smoko and chat at the usual time before making our way back to the Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens where we visited the Cascades Walk.  

After leaving the Botanic Gardens we again negotiated John’s local walk, arriving back at his house ready for some coffee and refreshments.  A great social start to a new year of bushwalking - Colin

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.
