The far north coast NSW comes across as being very urbanised, but quite often you'll walk around a headland and find solitude.

Lucky timing! An Eastern Water Dragon's tongue shoots out to grab one of the ants crawling over the rocks above the Wollangambe.

After traversing the summit ridge to reach the summit of Mount Gould our group returned to camp at the Gould Plateau tarns. This is a beautiful, secluded campsite with magnificent views in all directions.

WinnerClarke GorgeRob Croll
The road leading into this magic limestone karst area was closed, so it seemed a perfect time to avoid the crowds, and spend a few days exploring the caves, waterfalls and gorges.

Scoparia season is really variable. You can never be sure what you're going to get - I've seen it flowering at Pelion Gap midwinter. But this cold, late spring day at Lake Dobson it decided to turn on a show, and this specimen wasn't going anywhere.

Summer snow in our higher areas is common although not long lasting. There's always more than you would think when looking at it from a distance. Mawson wasn't too bad, but the ice and drifts on the Rodway Range made for hard work. Florentine, Naturaliste and Field West were a lot of (slippery) steps too far for a day walk.
