Pierces Creek State Forest - Murrays Hill
Australia

Murrays Hill in Pierces Creek State Forest. Elevation at this point: 686m according to GPS.


This is a dis-used, rocky track that climbs steeply up the northern slope of Murrays Hill until it suddenly turns into a well maintained vehicle track some way up the hill. I had to zigzag my way up slowly in some sections of the un-maintained portion of this track - its steepness combined with lots of loose rocks calls for due care.

The view down below of Pierces Creek Forest covered in pine trees improves every year as the pine trees grow taller. Most of the network of forest tracks, once very visible after the original pines were destroyed by fire in 2003, is now well covered up in a sea of green.

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.
