Christmas Message from the President

On behalf of the Management Committee of Brisbane Bushwalkers Club I wish all members and families a very happy, safe and hopefully wet festive season and new year.

The walking world has been affected in many ways during this year, and the new year is starting as a continuance of the same. Our thoughts are with the fire and drought affected families and businesses, as well as all of the emergency services involved with these events. The affected environment, plants and animals are also in front of mind as we see the disastrous impacts on their habitats.

Please be safe out walking and celebrating during this dry, smokey, and busy time of year, and enjoy the time with family and friends.

We are looking forward to the continued friendships, camaraderie and enjoyment the Club brings to all.

Stephen Simpson
President Brisbane Bushwalkers Inc.

Hadrians Wall Path - Tom Vaughan

The 118 km Hadrians Wall forms part the Frontiers of the Roman Empire, a UNESCO World Heritage Area which was declared in 1987. The area stretching over 5,000 km includes sites in the UK and Germany with the Antonine Wall and Gask Ridge being added in 2008. The 135 km Hadrians Wall Path opened as a National Trail in 2003. It extends from the once great shipbuilding city of Newcastle upon Tyne in the East through some remote scenic areas of northern England, past castles, abbeys and of course Roman forts, Milecastles and Turrets to Carlisle then on to Bowness on Solway in the West.  The presentation will cover my usual topics, getting there and getting back, food and accomodation, people and places. I’ll also talk about getting to the best, remote sites on a shortened walk and plenty of photos.  

Please join us at Newmarket Memorial Hall, corner of Enoggera Road and Ashgrove Avenue, Newmarket (Map).
