Article about Teresa House in the Sydney Morning Herald

Filed under: Stuff On the Web, Teresa House — nicksmyname @ 9:38 am

Sean managed to get a great article about Teresa House published in the “Icon” section of the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday. “Icon” is the consumer IT section and the article is related to using the website to find volunteers, but it gives a good picture of Teresa House. Well done Sean!

Bushwalking in Glenbrook Gorge

Kai explores the rock holes

A few weekends ago Dirk organised a buskwalk in Glenbrook Gorge in the Blue Mountains. Rory, Nick, Dirk, Kai and Grace had a great day in the depths of the gorge.

We basically walked from Glenbrook train station to Lapstone train station via the Gorge and the Nepean River and caught the train back.

Georgeous scenery. It was a bit rough for a while; the track dissapeared a lot and we had to do a lot of clambering over rocks and streams. Well recommended for the able bodied. Probably not brilliant if you have your 2 year old on your back. 9 Tough Kilometres x 18 kilo baby = very tired at the end!

There are more photos on Flickr.

You can make out the Gorge on this Google Maps aerial shot.

Dirk, what was the name of the Gorge again?
