-The youth hostel movement began in Germany and has spread rapidly so that there are now 5000 hostels throughout the world, with 150 in Australia. There are no age limits to membership in Australia. An early impression of the "​youth"​ age range was on the Yorkshire Dales. The sight of a sixtyyear-old man cycling and putting up like me, with the cold water of a frigid spring morning. If a person accepts the attitude of "young at heart" then he/she can understand the world view of the youth hostel ethic. + 
-If you are a party of six or more you can, by booking ahead through our corporate pass, stay at a hostel somewhere in the bush or somewhere in a city. You may have to put up with a dormitary ​rather than a tent. Perhaps you will have to put up with ,a snore but I've found tents scant insulation. You'll have the luxury of a warm night and, probably, warm morning and shelter from the storm. You will buy or make a standard sheet sack - which you won't regret as it will be 'de reguer'​ at any of those 5000 other places. +The youth hostel movement began in Germany and has spread rapidly so that there are now 5000 hostels throughout the world, with 150 in Australia.

-ABORIGINAL ROCK ART + 
-IN KAKADU +=====To Swim Or Not To Swim.===== 
-The rock paintings in Kakadu reflect a cultural tradition spanning tens of thousands of yearsDuring this time, there has been a distinct + 
-sequence of styles, many of which are almost unknown to the general public. +By Morag Ryder 
-A few major galleries such as Nourlangie and Ubirr are easily accessible by vehicle. Hundreds of others are accessible only on treks of three days or more. Willis'​s Walkabouts offers trips which visit many such sites throughout Kakadu, the rest of the Top- End and the Kimberley. Even in areas where our guides have been walking for ten years or more, we continue to find as yet uncatalogued- art sites. + 
-Ifyou are reasonably fit and interested in seeing a wealth ofAboriginal rock paintings inaccessible to the average tourist, write or phone for our free brochure. +During the June long weekend, over 100 walkers had to be helped out of the Blue Mountains. Many were stranded on the wrong side of flooded rivers, as was an SBW party. Having waited 36 hours in vain for the river to subside, and almost out of food, we had to make a plan of action. S & R would probably have been alerted by this time, so it seemed wise to stay on our intended route. However, we didn't know what sort of rescue would be attempted, so we wanted to contact the outside world and discover what was being done. We might also have been able to obtain transport to take us out. Accordingly,​ two fast walkers spent four hours going to the nearest ​telephone ​(at Yerranderie) while the rest waited by the river.
