Venue change!

Due to the expect high temperatures 35+ we have changed plans for this Saturdays walk. Instead we are heading to the shores of Moogerah from 5pm for an afternoon stroll/catchup .

Sunset is 6:50pm and can be spectacular if the clouds are right.

Times and a map are available on the event page.

January – Lake Moogerah Sunset stroll

2018 – Here we come!

Hi all, after an unavoidable hiatus we are back running the Scenic Rim Photowalks from January, I’ll have more details up here and on the Facebook page soon but just for a quick heads up these are our first 4 walks for the year…

Jan 20 – Cunninghams Gap – Palm Grove circuit

Feb 25 – Wyaralong Dam

Mar 17-18 Overnight – Border Ranges, Girraween

April 14 Sunrise shoot – Govenor’s Chair.

Hope to see you there

Update for the rest of 2017

Hi all, it has been very quiet here recently and a while since we have had a photowalk sadly. Unfortunately due to a family health problem I have had to reorganise my work so that I am working every weekend at the moment. At this stage that will be until early January 2018 so I will be unable to host any weekend walks until then but I am still keen to still try to keep a few things happening in the meantime.

There are a couple of other possibilities that we can explore…

Wednesday wanderings… it may be possible to arrange a few hours on a Wednesday morning. This would give plenty of options for shorted local walks (1 per month)

You host… if anyone would be interested in hosting a weekend walk I would be very appreciative and support in any way I can.

I am looking forward to getting things back to normal for 2018 (fingers crossed) as I have been missing catching up with you all.

I’d love to hear your thoughts or any other ideas you may have.

Looking for input

Hi all, you might notice I have started working on our location pages to add maps, photos and a description of what the area is like.

Like this one: https://www.scenicrimphotowalks.com/locations/mount-greville/

I’d love to have some input from you, especially if you have some photos you’d like to include on a slideshow for the location (with attribution), some feedback on the area or writing a description of what to expect photographically and physically.

I’m also always open to walk suggestions or happy for you to host your own photowalk in the Scenic Rim and add the details here.

July Photowalk – Scenic Rim Organic farm

Hi all,

I have just added the details for the next photowalk 1 July at the Scenic Rim Organic farm. I am excited to be running this as a part of Eat Local Week –  a huge 9 day festival celebrating the incredible array of locally produced food and wine.

It is a great little organic family run farm with views out towards the Main Range and a pretty little creek running through it. There will be plenty of activity on that morning as they are picking for the Winter Harvest event later in the day.

It’ll be a great morning and the Winter Harvest event is a fantastic day  which you could head to afterwards – just down the road at Aratula.

First 10 people to register (and turn up) get free tickets to the Winter Harvest.

Hope to see you there

This Saturday

In case you have missed it, there is a photowalk on this Saturday morning at one of the Scenic Rims most interesting peaks – Mount Greville. We wont be doing anything too challenging – hope to see you there. For more information and bookings (just to let me know you are coming) head to the events tab.

 

‘Eat Local Week’ and other walks

Hi Photowalkers  – some new events have been added to the events page for April, May, and June with some basic details with more specifics about location to come soon.

In other exciting news we have been approached to run a photowalk as part of Eat Local week in the Scenic Rim – I should have more information about this walk available early next week but for more information about the festival check out the website at https://www.eatlocalweek.com.au/ 

 

Upcoming Photowalks (Feb/Mar 2017)

(EDIT – the 2 events have been swapped around – March 4 is now at Westrays Grave)

It’s been a busy start for the year for me so I am little behind in organise the upcoming photowalks. Details for February and March are now up and I know some have already registered. Head to the events page for details and to sign up.

February (next weekend) is exploring Christmas Creek up to Westray’s grave. I haven’t been up there for years but it is a very beautiful part of the world

March is heading up to the lookout on Mt Cordeaux – lovely rainforest, giant spear lillies and expansive views coming right up 🙂

Yellowpinch update

For those interested in the upcoming Yellowpinch photowalk, I have updated the location information with 15 photos as well as a GPS track and elevation information from a quick recce I did this morning. To find it look at the ‘Locations’ tab then “Yellowpinch Reserve”.. or just click here

There are a number of orchids which should be in full bloom in a couple of weeks as well as many wildflowers – should be a great trip.

The start time will be a little earlier than initially planned to allow enough time for all the photo opportunities 🙂 Probably 2:30pm but stay tuned.

The plan is still for sunset from the top of Yellowpinch for some great silhouette photos of Mt Barney – a torch may be handy depending on how late we stay up there but the route back is a wide graded 4wd trail.

Feel free to post any questions in the comments below….

Calendar Update

The events calendar has just been updated for most of the rest of the year ( there may yet be a December walk as well)

Coming up:

September 11 – a visit to Mt Barney national park for a walk up the very pretty Logan river with great views of the mountains

October 15 – location still to be confirmed but the date is locked in

November 12 – I’m looking forward to this one – a visit to the Bunjurgen Estate vineyard located just outside Boonah.
