From Our Blog

Ten of us walked a seven day loop in the Discovery Bay Coastal Park and Lower Glenelg National Park in the third week of February this year.
The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world’s great long distance walk trails, stretching 1000km from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills, to Albany on the south coast, winding through the heart of the scenic South West of Western Australia.
Some years ago, the publication of the Abels - the list of Tasmania’s peaks with at least 1100m elevation and 150m or more of prominence - prompted me to make a similar listing for the Flinders Ranges. The first task was to decide on the lower limits for elevation and prominence and I set these at 700m and 150m. Despite the 400m difference in elevation limit between the two lists, the same minimum value for prominence was used and this reflects the fact that, with few exceptions, the peaks in both regions rise a similar height above their surroundings.
