Mackay Highlands Great Walk

So goodbye for a while I’m off to explore
Every boundary and every door
Yeah I’m going north.

Tomorrow morning as the sun peeps over the horizon, Mum and I will be going north to do the Mackay Highlands Great Walk, 57km over four days with two of Mum’s friends. We have been wanting to do this walk for over a year now but due to a number of things we have had to keep putting it off.

I am really looking forward to exploring some new country, with my camera of course :D. Though I am only taking a very minimal kit with me which will be the following. Camera, 70-200mm f/4, 50mm f/1.8, extension tubes, ef-s 18-55mm, tripod, a polariser filter and a cable release.

Now I am off to pack up as there will be no time in the morning as our destination tomorrow night is Rocky and then onto the Mackay region the following day. We should be back July 3 so until then remember to smile πŸ˜€

  1. Minimal kit?! Minimal for me means just one lens, and no tripod. What aren’t you taking?

    (For reference, my current hiking setup is 24mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8, 100-300 f4.5-f5.6 and tripod)

  2. Lol Karl, though that is all very much subject to change. I need the wide-angle but the 12-24 is a heavy kid so the 18-55mm is in. Then perhaps I will drop the 50mm. Who knows at this stage.

    See you when we get back.
