The South Coast from above on a scenic seaplane flight The kidlets play in the sand on the banks of the Moruya River while we watch our pilot from South Coast Seaplanes beaching our plane nearby and getting it ready for us. “Is that thing really gonna fit all four of us?” I wonder out loud. “And the pilot, too.” The Fairy Princess exclaims. “It’s a good thing you guys are little.” When he seems ready, we approach and introduce ourselves.

The most common feedback I get from readers of The Bushwalking Blog is that they “just want more hikes to do”. I get it – hiking is my passion too. I do more hikes than I’d ever have the time to write about, so that’s why I’ve decided Bare Bones Bushwalking is now a thing.
