Arnhem Land Community Project Travel

It was such a great trip. Really rewarding to clean up the beautiful beaches up there - we found lots of ghost nets, which made us all feel glad to be there so we could get rid of them (didn't find any trapped turtles but saw lots of turtle tracks on the beaches) - and to hang out with the Dhimurru rangers and learn a bit about Yolngu culture. ....weather was sunny most days, and warm but not too hot - we even went swimming in the sea most days.

Ring of Kerry Walk

The Iveragh Peninsula is one of Ireland's great natural tourist attractions. It encompasses a 179-kilometre circuit from Killarney, via Killorglin, Cahersiveen, Waterville, Kenmare and back to Killarney across Moll's Gap and past Ladies View - one of Ireland's most famous viewpoints. We leave the tour bus route and journey along a network of ancient paths which weave between the main points, on the long-distance track known as the Kerry Way. During this superb week long self-guided walk we experience stunning coastal scenery and pretty fishing villages, such as Caherdaniel and Portmagee, whose beautifully preserved stone dwellings have weathered the coastal elements for centuries, nestled amid a picturesque scene of verdant hills. At night we get a taste of traditional Irish hospitality in comfortable B&B's chosen for their good character, location and fine Irish breakfasts.
