Family Hike

Read More

I crashed the bike riding down the Goat Track from Mt Nebo this week. I got some pretty bad scratches, and suffered a painful shoulder injury which will need a week or two to recover.

Rather than mope around the house, Liz and the kids agreed to come for a hike through one of my favourite mountain biking places. We drove up to Mt Tibrogargan and hiked 8.8km around the Trachyte Circuit in the Glasshouse Moiuntains.

Our Team

Liz and the kids walk along one of the many trails with Mount Tibrogargan hunched over pensively in the background.

Enjoying the Walk

We wound our way up towards the Jack Ferris Lookout which has some great views of the valley.

Two Mothers

Liz and Beerwah – two legendary mothers.


Harrison enjoys the view of Tibrogargan from the lookout.


Lilly checks out Mount Tiberoowuccum from the lookout.

Walking the Dog

This blue healer cattle dog was sitting eagerly on the back of a ute driving past us. Suddenly the driver stopped, turned around, let the dog off, and started driving again.

The blue healer happily ran along in front of the car – rejoicing in his dogginess.

And the driver seemed pretty happy that he didn’t have to walk while his dog got some exercise.

We Did It!

Harrison and Lilly celebrate finishing our walk.

Well done team. 8.8km, 548m ascent, just over 2 hours. Thanks so much for a great time.
