My trips this year are in Australia. At the time of writing, I have just come back from Binna Burra (Lamington National Park, Queensland) and in a few days will head off to Tasmania where I will walk the Overland Track in winter and undertake a “Wineglass Bay Sail Walk” in a 70 foot ketch.

I visited Binna Burra in Lamington National Park with members of the Canberra Photographic Society, seven of us in total.  This is an upland temperate rainforest area.  We stayed in self-contained accommodation with wonderful views, undertook several walks of up to 17.5 kilometres and journeyed by car to Natural Bridge in Springbrook National Park.

    What a wonderful experience you have had, and are going to have. I wonder of your finance part. I also wonder of the “self contained” place with wonderful views. Can I see a pic of that, as I can’t imagine it.
