Gloucester Tops – Gloucester River Falls


This photo was taken at the Gloucester River Falls lookout above the Gloucester River in Gloucester Tops, which is part of the Barrington Tops National Park in New South Wales, Australia.

Tenterfield Region: Thunderbolt’s Hideout


Thunderbolts' HideoutThis photo was taken not far from Tenterfield in New South Wales, Australia. It shows a ‘cave’ formed by several boulders laying next to each other. This cave was used as a hideout and lookout by a bushranger known as Captain Thunderbolt (Frederick Ward) many years ago. It is just one of many such places around New South Wales used by this bushranger. The hideout is located not far from Tenterfield and Bald Rock National Park.

 

Apsley River: Oxley Wild Rivers National Park


Apsley River and GorgeThe ‘silly season’ is pretty much over – at least for me anyhow. So now I’m back to Blogging again. I have no hope of catching up on the days I missed, so I’ll just start again from today.

This photo was taken next to Apsley Falls in the Oxley Wild Rivers Natonal Park, New South Wales, Australia. I visited here during my ‘Waterfalls Tour 2010,’ which was my recently completed holiday.

This photo is from the Gorge Rim Walk, which pretty much covers the area from the camping area at Apsley Falls to the actual lookout at Apsley Falls. This photo shows the Apsley River flowing wildly at the base of the Apsley River Gorge.

A Lookout from the Past


I have recently begun to salvage some images from slides taken well into the past – from the family archives. These archives I have had for some time and now I have the technology to be able to bring these images back into the present. So for the next few days I plan to post a number of these photos from past slides taken by my grandfather many years ago.

Today’s image has me in the middle of the photo pointing to something that can be seen from the lookout. I’m not sure just what it is that I am pointing to – possibly towards my house. I’m fairly sure that the lookout is that of Mount Sugarloaf near Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia. On my left is my brother David and on my right is my cousin Michael.

Gloucester Tops: Andrew Laurie Lookout


2007_0429_ 008 This shot is taken from the Andrew Laurie Lookout, which is on the short track to the Gloucester River Falls in the Gloucester Tops section of the Barrington Tops National Park in New South Wales, Australia.

The walk from the car park to the lookout is only about 5 to 10 minutes of easy walking, with a further 5 to 10 minutes until the Gloucester River Falls are reached. The circuit track back to the car park only takes about 30 minutes to complete in total and is an easy walk on a bush track, with some minor rises along the way.

Zeitgeist is Out There – Beware!!!

I came across this post at a lookout above Tea Gardens. I certainly agree with the idea that Catholicism is not Christianity (not Biblical Christianity), but there is something else in this photo that people need to beware.

What is that something else? It is Zeitgeist. It is a movement which is beginning to take root out there. I have a link below to the Australian branch of the movement – actually it is the Australian branch ‘about’ page. Beware of this movement, it is an anti-Christian movement in that it is not Christian.
