Attendees at our first club night for 2020 were amazed by the daring acts and photographs of Post WW2 bushwalkers and climbers, mostly from the Brisbane area, as presented by Michael Meadows.  Michael is an academic researcher, published author and blogger.  Australian climbing history is the main focus of his book “The Living Rock” 2015, drawn from an extensive archive of documents, images and interviews relevant to the origins of climbing and bushwalking in Australia.
