It’s worth a thought


Mountain Barriers

There was a time in history when high mountains were a barrier.

When Hannibal crossed the Alps with his army it was considered a tremendous feat.  Napoleon too, was highly regarded when he led his troops over the highest part of the mountains that separate France and Italy.  In the hills west of Brisbane there is a memorial to Cunningham, the man who first crossed the Great Dividing Range at that point.  In the Darling Range east of Perth there is the Zig-Zag, a winding road that follows an old railway line that the early pioneers built, to help open up the inland areas.  And of course some will remember learning about Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth who found the first path across the Ranges into western New South Wales.

Today things are different.
