Tidbinbilla NR - Camel's Hump
Australia

Camel’s Hump, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.

I guess the most straightforward way to get to Camel’s Hump is by walking north along Camel Back Trail from Mountain Creek car park in the western parts of Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. The walk along the trail is pleasant if uneventful – it is a constant but relatively gentle climb most of the way. The fun starts from the base of Camel’s Hump where there is an orange sign. There is a (probably unofficial?) path to the top but the climb is steep and involves a bit of rock scrambling in some parts – great care required!

The view from some way up Camel’s Hump is gorgeous, in particular the Tidbinbilla Range to the southwest, Tidbinbilla Valley to the south, and east towards Canberra...er, is blocked by trees. I did find an even better spot higher up on the way back down. That spot had a great unobstructed view to the east but unfortunately I was concentrating so hard on trying to come down safely that I didn’t even think to stop to take another panorama. Bummer! Perhaps next time.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
