Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail
In October 2012, while visiting friends in Warburton, near Melbourne, Australia, I walked from Warburton along the 42 kilometers of this trail which winds through the Yarra valley. Though tired at the end, the scenery, trees and bird life were well worth the walk.
I visited here in November 2012. It is a solemn place, as you take in the history and read the names of the fallen soldiers. There is a museum in the basement and I climbed to the top for a great view of Melbourne.
The Noojee railway line, no longer in service, was built in the late 1900's to transport timber, general goods, and passengers in the Victoria area of Australia. It featured a number of large timber trestle bridges, of which this is the last remaining one.
I visited here in October 2012.
This is at Punakaki, South Island, New Zealand. At Pancake Rocks the sea bursts though a number of vertical blowholes during high tides and erodes the limestone rocks. The pancake layering of the limestone is due to the immense pressure on alternating hard and soft layers of marine creatures and plant sediments.
Cape Reinga is at the most northern end of the Aupouri Peninsula, on the North Island of New Zealand. From here you have the Tasman Sea to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east. I love lighthouses, and was lucky to visit here in October 2012.
