Today we decided to go exploring in the Hartz Mountains. I don't know if you would really call it a bush walk or more of a wander. What a little piece of heaven this place is, cascading waterfalls and valleys that run for miles. It was simply breathtaking. We were lucky enough to have had a bit of rainfall the last couple of days that made it that much more spectacular.

WOW is all I can say!!  Yesterday I got to experience the beauty of Liffey Falls. It is the prettiest most majestical place I have ever been to!! A walk filled with so many wonderful things.

The majority of the track is flat with only two steep climbs, one at the beginning and one at the end. You will hit the end when you walk up a steep hill and there are two power towers and a great view over the Derwent River.

Have you ever been on a walk and felt like you were in some sort of Nintendo Game whereas you have to pass obstacles to get to the next level? Today's walk was one of these and there was only one player 'me'….. Starting lives 3. I headed down past Mount Field National Park to Tyenna, destination Marriot Falls and what a magnificent site it was - another favourite to add to the list.

Winter is truly here...the snow's blanketing the mountain and the morning frosts have hit us hard this year. Make a plan to do a short walk...get it out of the way nice and early in the morning...you will end up feeling great and still have the whole day to yourself. Here's one I did today. I've got to say not the most spectacular falls but still worth the walk.

Today I jumped in the car and headed far south of Tassie for a short walk to Waterfall Bay - a very picturesque walk with a handful of lookouts along the way. It's a very structured walk, good walking path and barriers. There is only one small incline on the way in so if you have a pram it is still manageable.

The sun was out in Tasmania today so a friend and I went on the search for Scout Hut on Mt Wellington that lay secluded amongst the safety of colourful boulders and an amazing scenery.  What an interesting little hut it was with it's wrought iron cladding, outdoor shower, hammocks and a loo with a view.

Today I had my three year old nephew come with me on a small hike to the 'Secret Falls' in the search for dragons and fairies. This is a great little short walk for children and is close to Hobart.

Third time lucky…Today I managed to find Sama Hut which is also known as Tyson's Hut, Lost World Hut and the A Frame Hut.This triangular looking hut was built in 1968-1969 by Jeff Tyson with the help of his brother and a mate. Today it is used by climbers and all sorts of adventurers.

Russell Falls is one of Tasmania's most renowned waterfalls.  It is a popular tourist attraction and is situated within the Mount Field National Park. It's an easy and enjoyable walk to the falls.  The track is flat and well made and leads you to a viewing point where you can watch the tiered falls plummet down to the waters below.

This one's dedicated to all you lovely mums out there and although it's not a 'bush walk' as such it's a walk you can take your little one on in a pram.

Today I went exploring on Mount Wellington for Luckman's Hut. After reading quite a bit about the hut I think it should be called 'Lovers Hut'. Luckman's Hut was built in 1938 by the Hobart Walking Club and was named after a gentleman by the name of Leo Luckman a renowned local stone mason who supervised the building of the hut, he was also a member of the club with his dear wife Jessie who was Tasmania's first conservationist and a woman of many talents; musical and otherwise.

Today we ventured south of Hobart past Kingston and Margate to the beautiful Snug Falls. Due to the downfall of rain last night it made the falls that much more spectacular! These falls are the prettiest I've seen yet. I would have been happy to sit on a rock there the whole day and read a book.
