A group of 5 of us this weekend will rock hop our way across the goldfields landscape in search of Toonarrie Rock. This rock is listed in the "List of Rocks in Western Australia" (see link below) and it would be fair to say unlikely to have been visited by a handful of people in over 100 years.

The 18-hole par 72 golf course spans 1,365 kilometres with one hole in each participating town or roadhouse along the Eyre Highway, from Ceduna in South Australia to Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. Each hole includes a green and tee and somewhat rugged…Continue

Do you like a hike with a bit of a challenge, Angels Landing in Utah’s sensational Zion National Park fits the bill. Although not an especially long in distance at 8km return or time at around 4 hours, it is the narrow switch back trail topped with a heart thumping rock scramble that makes it the challenge. This last spurt gains an elevation of 453 metres.
As we found out after barely getting over jet lag, it is no doddle, but wow, the views are amazing. We…
