Devil’s Nose

We tried out the Devil’s Nose Track in Para Wirra Conservation Park. Although it’s not that far we easily spent a couple of hours enjoying the views and wildlife.

And a grasshopper thatContinue reading “Honeyeater Link Trail – Sandy Creek”

In the end, apart from some interesting bird sightings, it was just us and theContinue reading “Little Kaiserstuhl Walk”
