Issue 6: MARCH 2004


Welcome to the sixth issue of my bushwalking come wilderness ezine. 'Kevin's Walk on the Wildside' has been a little quiet of late, as has the website. I'm hoping to change all that in the near future. More room to expand should allow the addition of more content as well.

As you can tell the web site has changed URL's as we have changed servers/providers. I have also added another email address as I will soon be dumping my main email address in order to get rid of all the spam that's been coming my way. In future I will only be adding email addresses that I can get rid off easily (that way I can can the spam on a regular basis).

Not all of the links in this particular issue will probably work at the moment as I'm still moving content over to this site. In the next couple of weeks however it should all start to work.

There won't be much in this particular issue except to inform you of some of the changes and things that are going on in association with that, as well as some reminders of trips taken a little while back. Enjoy it none the less.







The big trip for 2003 has now been completed. Instead of the planned eight days, the modified walk was completed in five days and included a distance of about 76.5km in total. For all the information and photos see the link below.


With the extra space I now have for the website I am able to have information and photos from other sources added to the site. Perhaps you have a holiday or trip to some bush or wilderness area, be it in Australia or elsewhere that you would like to add to the site in order to share your experience with others. Please drop me a line and let me know at


My blog has now changed addresses as you would guess (having changed site's, etc). All the content from the previous site is available here, not that there is a lot currently. However, I do plan to add more to it over time. Visit the Blog and Diary at:


Associated with 'Kevin's Wilderness Journeys' web site is the 'Kevin's Wilderness Walkers Mail Group.' The mail group currently only has a few members and very little in the way of activity. One of the members (other than myself) has posted some photos in the photo album of her visits to the Colo and Wollemi wilderness area west of Sydney. Hopefully as more people join the group there will be an increase in activity.

Why join the mail group? A good question. The group gives an opportunity for those who love wilderness and the bush, especially in Australia, to share their experiences and perhaps pass on information about destinations, tack conditions, etc, to other group members. By doing so, there is an opportunity to assist others who are planning trips to the same area, etc. When you think about it the opportunities for the sharing of information are limitless.

Another feature of the 'Kevin's Wilderness Journeys' web site is the discussion board. As of yet there have been no comments or thoughts left in the forum. There are two comments/questions posted by me on the boards, but no responses have yet been received. This is another feature of the site that has the potential to be a real help to those travelling around Australia.

To visit the discussion board and perhaps leave a thought or two for further discussion among visitors to the forum, visit the forum:


I have created a number of screensavers of various trips I have taken. These can be downloaded for free from the web site. There are screensavers of the Australia Trips, the Barrington Tops, Dangar Falls, Dorrigo National Park and the Great Ocean Road. Visit the screensavers page at:
