Hi there, I'm Raven, an ex-pat pom who saw the light and married an Aussie girl (well she did come all the way to England to snag me!). So I'm now living in Brisbane and getting used to the fact that the winter temps here are higher than the summer ones back home! It's a beautiful place and I'm looking forward to getting out there and learning more about it.

I've been into bushcraft for quite a while and have been a member of BCUK for years but TBH I know virtually nothing about the land here, the flora and fauna etc., so it's going to be interesting learning about it. Not seen any drop-bears yet :linguino::_risata: and the bugs are nowhere near as bad as all the doomsayers in England will tell you lol

Anyhow, good to meet you all and happy bushcrafting!

It's not the Drop Bears you have to worry about, it's the Hoop Sna... who am I kidding, you've probably heard all about those nasty critters.

Welcome to the site mate and congrats on the move to God's Own Country.

Here's an old John Williamson song just for you -

Hi Raven, keep us posted with your new adventures.
If you have difficulty finding enough bugs I'm sure some local folk from here can point out the right places :;):
