Moroka River

Moroka Gorge Falls:

  A friend sent me a digital copy of this C19th Von Guerard painting (above). I have lurked in the Mount Darling-Snowy Bluff Wilderness quite a lot…I thought we had been to the Moroka Falls (twice – eg http://www.theultralighthiker.com/camping-by-the-moroka-river/) but we had only been to the UPPER Falls – as the clip from Vicmap Moroka …

Tray-Top Camper

This is our rig. We have a Landrover Defender – the 1995-99 models with the 300TDI engines are best – after that vehicles all became electric and impossible to fix when things go wrong, especially in the bush. In 2010 the camper cost us under $20,000 delivered. The vehicle cost us $10,000 around 2005. This …

Camping by the Moroka River

Spent a couple of nights camped by the Moroka River, one at Horseyard Flat. Beautiful weather. Great mid-week company. No-one but Della and the two Jack Russells, who were born in Australia, pay their taxes on dog food, vet supplies & etc, so are entitled to share our beautiful National Parks with us!

Wonderful Wilderness Areas in Victoria

Hiking Circuits in the Victorian Mountains

Some are quite long and would take a fortnight or so to complete. Others are shorter. The ‘Four Rivers Circuit’: Wonnangatta, Dry Creek, Caledonia, Wellington, …

Hunting: Wonnangatta

Our kitchen sink: the last few days. My son in law Matt and I just spent four days hiking/hunting a day’s walk away from the car in the Wonnangatta-Moroka National Park. Never have competition for who does the washing up at home, but this setting/plumbing makes a difference I guess… We always camp in an …

Wonnangatta-Moroka National Park

Back from four days’ hiking in the Wonnangatta–Moroka National Park May 31, 2013 with the lovely Della and the two Jack Russells who just have to see this wonderful wilderness which is being preserved for ‘future generations’ but not for the current one. We know a beautiful remote flat where we camped amid the comings and …

First Trip in the Tray Back Camper

We bought a tray back camper from fourwheelcampers.com in California sometime back. We have just been away in it and found it brilliant (especially the bed). The gas fridge kept everything nice and cold. We have a space heater and a water heater with an outside shower. We may add a rooftop solar panel to …
