08.10.18 Taking a minute to stop and take it all and before I psych myself to get into the ice cold pools. . .
08.10.18 One of streams meanders down into this little creek down the mountain. Shaded by smooth barked water gums, theyโ€™re roots tangle around the creek river bed. Nature at its finest.
08.10.18 Trying hard not to slide down the granite boulders Pete and I set out on a grand adventure down the gully. Following the dry spots we climbed down and jumped in all the pools. . .
We took a chance by going to Yosemite during the forest fires. Many of the roads and sights were closed, but we still managed to get a few good hikes in. One selfish but positive outlook on the fires is that the smoke created a really nice filter for the sunlight just before the earth rotated away from the sun, displaying crazy colors in the sky . . . . . . #yosemitenation #ushikers #wanderwomeninc #california4fun #caliexplored #naturalcalifornia #mymadness #alpingirls #idhikethat #mountaingirls #womenwhoexplore #socaltravels #hikeandseek #mountainafflicted #galswhotravel #hikerworld #calihg #hikerchicksrock #mountaincommunity
08.10.18 The highs and lows of this year have strengthened us. This year was a year to cut away the fat in our lives, get simple again. Iโ€™m more in love with you today than when we first got married. . . Sometime we drive each other up the walls, but you are the only person that I would rather do this life with. Thank you for working so hard to make this year easy on me, facilitating my learning and providing me with the safest arms anyone could ask for. . . #emeraldcreek #emeralcreekfalls #tablelands #athertontablelands
08.10.18 I wish there was langage to articulate the beauty of these places I get to visit. Bottlebrush trees sprout from between the white granite, their red flowers giving a splash of colour to the scene in the dry season. . . #emeraldcreek #emeralcreekfalls #tablelands #athertontablelands
08.10.18 Being a city chick who grew up in Newtown, the closest nature i had was a park. The fact that this year I was given the beautiful gift of studying up in far North Queensland has been a real treasure. . The people I have met, the goals I have achieved. The limits I have pushed and the sweet submission to the refining process. I would not change a thing. I am a better person because of this year. . . #emeraldcreek #emeralcreekfalls #tablelands #athertontablelands

In Cremorne flows a gorgeous suburban waterfall which has withstood the urbanization of the area over time and still puts on a show after rain. With all the falling rain in Sydney and surrounds recently, it only made sense to drop by one of these local flowing beauties in the few hours left in the day. . If this persistent rain is anything to go by, there'll be more Sydney Suburban waterfall visits to come! The lower North Shore, Inner Northern Beaches and Lane Cove areas are just a few of the suburban areas hiding away these beautiful gems. . *********************************************** Location: Willoughby Falls along Willoughby Creek, Cremorne -Primrose Park NSW . Directions: Drive towards the lower North Shore and park on either side of Primrose Park at Cremorne just below the Cammeray Golf Course. Once on foot, the nature trail shouldn't be too difficult to find and will be a max 10minute walk from the car. As soon as you arrive at the narrow foot bridge, Travel time depends on your proximity to Cremorne ๐Ÿ˜ Willoughby Falls flows via Willoughby Creek, its namesake, but is found actually in Cremorne. . Highlights: With a view of this multi-tier cascase waterfall and a back view of the inner harbour around Mosman, it simply is a must visit waterfalls to shoot during the rain. Easy to pop by, before or after work, or any other appointment you may have! Watershoes will help if you want to get different angles of the waterfall . ********************************************* . #longexposure #focusaustralia ย #suburban #visitnsw #waterfalls #ig_australia #australia #seeaustralia #depthsofearth #wow_australia2018 #fantastic_earth #local #hiddengem #willoughby #harbour #rainy #australia_shotz #hikeandseek #์‹œ๋“œ๋‹ˆ์—ฌํ–‰ #์‹œ๋“œ๋‹ˆ #์‹œ๋“œ๋‹ˆ์Šค๋ƒ… #ํ˜ธ์ฃผ์—ฌํ–‰ #์‹œ๋“œ๋‹ˆ๊ทผ๊ต #nature #ํ•˜์ดํ‚น #๋“ฑ์‚ฐ
08.10.18 Post swim, snacks and beers were opened and everything stood still. I looked over to the waterfall and down the gully and took it all in. . Aside from the intense allergic reaction i got from midgee (sandfly)bites the day prior, this day could not get any better. Beer in one hand, cheese and cracker in the other, this is my way of celebrating a great win. . . #emeraldcreek #emeralcreekfalls #tablelands #athertontablelands
08.10.18 The waters of the creek tumble over granite boulders, forming the falls that plunge into the pools below. Huge granite boulders form a sea before you as you cross the gully. Itโ€™s easy to imagine how different this environment would be in the wet season. . As we navigated the granite boulders we climbed and witnessed the majesty of the Emerald creek falls. With haste we jumped in, knowing full well how cold it would be. Itโ€™s the only want to get cool up here. . . #emeraldcreek #emeralcreekfalls #tablelands #athertontablelands
08.10.18 Only a relatively short walk from the car park, the hike up to the Emerald creek falls is windy track that meanders up and around the tall dry grassland. . On arrival, we are greeted by a beautiful creek, canopied by smooth barked water gums. The rocks were white granite. Worn down by the pounding water erosion they shimmered in the sunlight. . . #emeraldcreek #emeralcreekfalls #tablelands #athertontablelands
Canโ€™t believe itโ€™s already more than a month ago...
08.10.18 With the majority of the watering holes being rainforest up here, it was very refreshing to be met with the Australian bush. . Long dry grass ans tall skinny eucalyptus trees lining the path up to the fall. . . #emeraldcreek #emeralcreekfalls #tablelands #athertontablelands
08.10.18 Emerald Creek Falls is up in the tablelands of cairns. An hours drive up a windy road through the mountains. Just before Mareeba is a small road that leads down a unsealed track. With no phone reception and 8 km of unsealed road ahead, I had my fingeres crossed. . With dry grassland on my right, banana plantations on my left, red earth before me, this is Australia I have yearned to see for a long time. . . #emeraldcreek #emeralcreekfalls #tablelands #athertontablelands
08.10.18 In celebration of my thesis finally being officially handed in, it was only right to celebrate by packing a picnic and exploring a new waterfall. . . #emeraldcreek #emeralcreekfalls #tablelands #athertontablelands
The picturesque opening to the mouth of Ghosties Cave safe guarded by @nancyyxchen as she gingerly wanders rock to rock playing cat and mouse with the gentle lapping of the waves at low tide. One can't help but spend many moments relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the large cavity here whilst observing the common swallows that fly in and out in their game. . The last few weeks of downpour and undoubtedly welcome rains have left the sea cave trips a little less to be desired, for better in times of sunshine and warmth. No doubt though, the cave trips will return and the joyous adventures will continue to adventure to these phenomenal beauties. *********************************************** Location: Ghosties Cave at Ghosties Beach, Moonee NSW (Central Coast/Hunter) . Directions: Take either the Ghosties Beach trail from Munmorah Conservation Reserve or park your car at Moonee/Catherine Hill Bay near the residential development area and walk the easier route across Moonee Beach directly onto Ghosties Beach. Ghosties Cave can be found at the end of Ghosties Beach. 1.5hour drive from Sydney/30minute drive from Newcastle and 25-30minute walk. . Highlights: Explore the beautiful caves of the Central Coast to Hunter Coastline, (Ghosties is one of my favourites) and catch a glimpse of elusive wildlife such as the white bellied eagle or the Ghost and Soldier crabs. The iconic Catherine Hill Bay and Munmorah Conservation Reserves are great places to explore too! Note** Always take tides AND swell into consideration for coastal activities, especially sea cave adventures. . ********************************************* . #beach #focusaustralia ย #coastal #visitnsw #hiking #ig_australia #australia #seeaustralia #depthsofearth #wow_australia2018 #fantastic_earth #cave #summer #๋ฐ”๋‹ค #seacaves #ghosties #australia_shotz #hikeandseek #์‹œ๋“œ๋‹ˆ์—ฌํ–‰ #์‹œ๋“œ๋‹ˆ #์‹œ๋“œ๋‹ˆ์Šค๋ƒ… #ํ˜ธ์ฃผ์—ฌํ–‰ #๋ธ”๋ฃจ๋งˆ์šดํ‹ด #nature #ํ•˜์ดํ‚น #๋“ฑ์‚ฐ
07.10.18 . ยซIf we hope to go anywhere or develop ourselves in any way, we can only step from where we are standing. If we don't really know where we are standing... We may only go in circles...ย ยป . - Jon Kabat- Zinn .
07.10.18 I think what I love most about the rainforest is the dappled sunlight that streams through the canopy. Sitting in a once river bed observing the electric blue dragonflies zooming around me and taking it all in. . Being so close in proximity to these national park gems makes it easy to stop and regroup. To stop and remember that youโ€™re doing ok. I think itโ€™s much harder to access these things in the city. . . All in all, this year has been made much easier due to this environment. With my thesis now complete and a couple more assessments to go, itโ€™s not too far to the finish line. . .
07.10.18 On a warm lazy Sunday in far North Queensland, When the only thing you want to do is get cool... you head to the watering holes at the bottom of the mointains surrounding Cairns. We packed a picnic and set off to Stoney Creek for the afternoon. After a short walk up the ridge we found a little spot under the trees. . .
We are ready and super excited! Big day tomorrow! Beep beep! Stay tuned ๐Ÿงก #hikeandseektours #thelostlife
This place is magic.

@nataylia_rose managed to get to the bottom of the gorgeous Apsley Falls after some absailing and a bit of a hike. There were once stairs all the way to the bottom of this beauty but unfortunately they were decommissioned in the 1960's. Who else wishes the stairs were restored so you could get safely to the bottom? ๐Ÿ– . . . . . . #waterfalls #ournaturedays #ig_australia #hikeandseek #amazing_australia #whyihike #waterfallwandering #ourlonleyplanet #nature #chasingwaterfalls #tranquility #newsouthwales #beautiful_australia #ig_australia @the_adventureco #rockingmygypsysoul #hiddengems #beautifuldesinations #theoutbound #purewanderlust #landscape_hunters #waterfallways #explore #wanderess #adventureneverstops #girlsjustwannahavefun #aussie_images #wowontheearth #waterfallwandering #waterfallwaysorbust ๐Ÿ“ธphotocredit @adventure_matt82
01.10.18 At the end of this hike I felt accomplished but exhausted. Similarly, as I hand in my thesis tomorrow I feel proud of my efforts but tired. . Slow and steady I worked on this research, constantly in the back of my mind, it was always with me. . Tomorrow as I hand it in, l feel as though a lot of it, I owe to you Peter Ames. You have single handedly upheld me through the migraines and the sleepless nights. . Most of all I am proud of myself. I never thought Iโ€™d get here. Here I am. Hereโ€™s to the future and whatever it holds. . .
01.10.18 A hiker in his element. . .
01.10.18 . One of the most challenging hikes I have ever been on. Itโ€™s in time like these that I learn about my own resilience and strength. . .
