It’s a very good idea to always have gaiters with you as an option, depending on the terrain.
Yes! These definitely add some color to our hiking days!

Bushwalking Victoria are very keen to promote family bushwalking. Should we be doing more of it too?
When the family asks”Do you know a good place to.......” this is a good list to have at your fingertips!
Yes we love the Prom, and no we don’t want boats landing on pristine beaches.
Love the Prom?
Three large amphibious boats, each holding 34 people, could soon be operating from the Prom’s most popular beach – endangering swimmers and addi...ng to the Prom’s traffic chaos.

How cute is this little guy!
With its bulging eyes and spiky hide, this Knob-tailed gecko might have the appearance of a cartoon character native to the desert, but it actually calls Serend...ip Sanctuary home.
Knob-tailed geckos are native to Australia and are recognisable by their unusual appearance - big head, big eyes, short body and no tail.
This one is living a happy life at Serendip and is in care by local staff.
