2019-04-14 Seaham Swamp Nature Reserve (VKFF-1994)

Last week I noticed a tiny little park that I had driven by that looked really very convenient and easy to activate. So, that's what I did today. Unfortunately I missed getting VK4SYD/P as I was packing my gear and he was spotting at that time. I got him later, but not in a park. … Continue reading 2019-04-14 Seaham Swamp Nature Reserve (VKFF-1994)

2019-04-06 Columbey National Park (VKFF-0581)

Australia Dy offered the opportunity to use the special AX prefix, so after a bit of google earth and google maps/streetview searching I decided on VKFF-1377. Driving up I was watching the outside temperature move to around 38.5 degrees C. Driving up the M1 on the Saturday of the Australia day weekend, google maps decided … Continue reading 2019-01-26 Tilligerry State Conservation Area – VKFF-1377

Belford National Park VKFF-0023

I did some google earth investigation along with checking where Gerard had activated this park. Gerard activated it from the side of the road, which actually manages to be inside the park. I noticed that there was a management trail at the northern end of Kirkton Road that looks like it had potential. At this … Continue reading Belford National Park VKFF-0023
