Well done ! The location looks like the hill I've seen behind Denman. We should make a map for it. Does it have a name? If not, how about calling it Aaron's Hill?

Thanks Michael B. Hahaha. Yep I think that's the hill you're talking about. It did seem to be good quality, untouched native grassland with a lot of interesting stuff in there. I'm keen to explore it way more.

I can't believe you actually named it "Aaron's Hill". Is it your property, Aaron?

Happy to baby sit it Matt until someone claims it! Seems like a completely open, undescribed nature reserve? It's very high quality native grassland. Not to be developed on!

Matt I also would have invited you to come join me, but I live an unpredictable hectic life. At very short notice I get a spare hour so I race out there and hard to plan for. Chaos at the moment...

I've been busy with work and uni, so it is unlikely I could have come regardless.

Ok I don't feel guilty any more Matt, thought that might be the case.

It's actually called Piney Ridge..
