Bushwalking from the 1960s & 70s

I came across a great collection of bushwalking and climbing pictures from the 60s and 70s, these shots are part of Ted Cais' collection. Ted and his peers we're pioneers of Queensland climbing, opening countless new routes and exploring the Australian bush. These shots have captured a really special and historic time.

A big thank you to Ted for giving me permission to share these great pictures. you can see the entire early collection here and all Ted's galleries are here.

1970s Paddy Pallin Catalogue

An awesome 1970s catalogue from the Australian, bushwalking pioneer Paddy Pallin. Pallin was unhappy with the limited, heavy outdoor gear available and  began designing and making his own hiking equipment. Such was the demand that Pallin opened a retail store in the early 1930's on George Street, Sydney. There are still Paddy Pallin stores across Australia, producing and selling original gear.
