Walk on the Wild Side

Leave a comment

I cannot believe that I have lived here for 14 years and never walked along this section of the Obi Obi trail which runs from the Showgrounds to the centre of Maleny.

Although it is only 680m in length (according to the information board) it seems like a million miles from anywhere.

Here are a couple of views from my walk on Monday.

I was aware that the walk was there but it was not until I decided to walk that way to get to the gym which is at the Showgrounds that I discovered this hidden gem so close to the centre of town.

It is an easy and relaxing walk which I will incorporate into my routine more often in the future.






Tourists in Our Own Town

This morning we went to Baroon Pocket Dam.  The southern, or Maleny side where we went is only about 5 minutes drive from the centre of Maleny.  We took a short walk on a circuit overlooking the lake.  It is easy to overlook some of the spectacular natural scenery on our doorstep so I took these photos to remind us of how lucky we are.  We travel halfway around the world to see views like these and here it all is in our own backyard.  We took the camera, stainless steel water bottles, home-made muffins and apples in a backpack for our excursion.  So for next to no cost or environmental impact we had a lovely morning walk.

Here is one of the lake…..
