HIKES & WALKS

One of my major resolutions for this year is to hike and do lots of walks. This is my way of improving my fitness level, which I can definitely say is not at a level that I would like it to be. And let’s be honest, the view of the World from up above is definitely something to die for.

So the aim of this post is to provide a list of all the walks that I have done and have enjoyed so far.

Australia

  • Belmore falls (5 kilometers) is in the Morton National Park. The walk provides a spectacular views of the Kangaroo valley and starts off at the Hindmarsh lookout. The track is a fenced off trail, which means that to start the unmarked trail, we had to jump off the fence. The climb is through the fallen trees and the slippery rocks.
