Take your Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick on Bushwalking Expeditions
Bushwalking, or what is also known as tramping or hiking, is enjoyed by many Australians year-round. Naturally, you’ll want to take your Irish blackthorn walking canes with you so you can cover a greater range of the interesting and beautiful Australian terrain.
A Safe Activity
What’s nice about hiking or bushwalking through Australia is that it’s considered a safe activity as you don’t usually encounter any wildlife that is averse to human exploration. Enjoy your hikes then and use your walking stick to aid you in your climbs as you wend your way through Australia’s scenic and lush terrain.
When you do see wildlife, you will be awed by the unique fauna. For example, you may see such indigenous animals as the popular and well-known koala bears and kangaroos as well as potoroos, bandicoots, wombats, and dingos. Before you go on any Australian jaunt though, you’ll want to read some travel guides and plan a bushwalk itinerary. Check out the Tidbinbilla Fauna Reserve as well as Mt. Franklin and Mt. Kelly-Gudgenby. The Blue Mountains also offer a myriad of good hikes as well.
Bird Species Galore
If you love nature, you will indeed find plenty of interesting vegetation, animals and bird species on the Australian continent. Of course, people who make full use of their Irish blackthorn walking stick cover such a distance that they often become birders as well. In Australia, in particular, you will come across birds that make the country and continent their primary habitat.
One of the birds that call Australia home is the cockatoo. This bird is denoted by its distinct bill and crest and original vocalizations. Most species typically live in large flocks and find a comforting habitat in the hollows of eucalypts. The trees often border stretches of Australian grassland or make up woods that are situated near bodies of water, such as brooks and lakes.
