Bogong is delighted to announce our commitment to help protect, maintain and sustain Glovers Flat through Bush Heritage.
Bogong staff member Chelsea escaped Melbourne winter earlier this month, travelling to an island off the coast of Townsville, Queensland. There, she found not just a beach paradise, but a boulder playground worth chucking climbing shoes in your luggage for.
Ice climbing in Africa, on the continent’s second-highest mountain.
Trips and adventures will often be planned down to the smallest detail, yet turned on their heads by the simplest and most basic of things – the weather. My recent trip to NZ, ostensibly for the purpose of alpine climbing, was more a test of flexibility due to the weather conditions than anything else.
In early February I headed up to the Bogong High Plains for five days of solo walking. My aim was to test out my new tent and sleeping bag, however – and I’m not complaining – I was greeted with near perfect weather, with barely a breath of wind nor a single drop of rain.
Early in February, I undertook the famous Great Ocean Walk; an 8 day walk along Victoria’s spectacular coastline from Apollo Bay to the Twelve Apostles. I thought it would be a good solo mission, as the track is extremely well defined, the signage is awesome, and there is road access to many of the campsites (just in case things went wrong!)
