Oh, the places you'll go!

Hiking & travel guides


Hi, I’m Kate

I write, take photographs, and build things on the internet… and on weekends I hike and visit new places.

Most of my adventures are close to home in the national parks around Sydney, and every now and then I head off on bigger trips (like here and here).

On this website I share my hikes and travels in the hope they might inspire you to head off on some tiny outdoor adventures of your own.

When you take a picture of protest you simultaneously confront the current conflict, competing visions for the future, and stories of what came before. This is where my photography journey began: capturing pictures of protest.
