This wonderful few days has been postponed - great news! If you weren't able to join in May, you now have time to plan for the new dates! The added bonus for this time of the year - longer days, big starry skies and it's warm enough to take a dip in the creek ?
Do you feel like slowing right down for a few days? Read on ...
We know you love to bush walk but sometimes it's important to take a moment to really observe our gorgeous landscapes - one of the best ways to do this is to actually stop. And breathe. And find your creative flow ... Even if you are a true beginner, or you tell yourself you don't have an artistic bone in your body ... don't worry ... artist and teacher Glynn Kelly is here to guide you to create something lovely ? Oh ... and there will be some walking too!
Our new program of immersion in landscape and art in the heartland of the Lost World valley is a collaborative event between artist and teacher Glynn Kelly and Horizon Guides; staying at the award winning Worendo Cottages and with delicious meals by Bev Ruskey of Spring Creek Mountain Cafe fame. Glynn will guide you in learning the basics of drawing, ink and water colour technique. For beginners, or those wishing to develop their practice: you will be so thrilled with the images you create. Take some time out to breath in the gloriously wild Scenic Rim!

ABOUT OUR WALKS Our eco-interpreted bushwalks are open to anyone with an urge to get out and experience the magnificent Scenic Rim region – and beyond.
This is a guided group trek and natural history interpretation is an integral part of the guided experience. You are expected to stay with the group. These are NOT fast-paced races to a destination! No drones please.
Our aim is to get out and explore the many facets of our amazing region, note the changes and develop a deeper understanding of the natural richness on our doorstep and, of course, become walking fit with a wonderful group of like-minded bushwalkers.
The nature of the Scenic Rim terrain means that there are few ‘easy’ walks on graded trails. The majority of routes feature uneven ground and ascents and descents, often with rocky sections. The gradients are sometimes very steep. We always allow plenty of time to complete walks so that there is not the necessity to speed through walks or to feel you are not keeping up.
Come - walk and create with Horizon Guides this season!
