Dog friendly hiking

Having a fur child in the family can make adventures limited at times.  We love to get out and about but are often then faced with the guilt of leaving our beloved fur child behind.  Today we decided to head out to somewhere pet friendly .... and scratch that itch for a hike with the whole family.
Our venue today:  Moggill Conservation Park.  This conservation park can be found 22km west of central Brisbane, on Chalcot Rd (off Mt Crosby Rd) in Anstead.  Parking is available in a designated parking lot.  Popular activities at the conservation park include walking (our chosen activity for the day), horse riding and bike riding.  We even saw a rather keen bunch of 4x4 drivers taking to the track at one stage.  Sturdy shoes are advised and dogs are allowed as long as they are on a leash.  Perfect for us!

This weekend we took on an adventure of a new kind as a family.  With the desire for more 'adventurous' outings we joined a group of gym buddies and headed to Crank Indoor Climbing at Mt Gravatt.  Crank Indoor Climbing can be found near Garden City, at 2/537 Kessels Rd, MacGregor.  Parking is readily accessible at the adjacent parking facility.

We had so much fun at this venue!  The climbing walls available are graded from beginner to advanced, and are all well labelled so that you know which grade your chosen wall is.  The pegs are also colour coded, making life much easier.



The boys were AMAZING!  They worked together, even helping their cousin Amara (who joined us for the day).  Together they scaled walls, belayed for each other and encouraged everyone involved in our day out.  Much to my surprise, I even managed to scale several walls - there's a first for everything.  I absolutely LOVED it!!!  Proof that you are never too old to get fit and give new experiences a go.
