Welcome to the Bush Explorers Website

Bush Explorers and Authors, Michael Keats, Brian Fox and Yuri Bolotin have been exploring the Australian Bush for years.

Bush Explorers is a work in progress guide to ultimate bushwalking in the Greater Blue Mountains National Park and the Gardens of Stone National Park. It is a chronicle of challenges, discoveries, adventures, sweat, and research lead by Brian Fox, Michael Keats and Yuri Bolotin. It is also your key to enjoy seldom visited places, and through words and pictures, enjoy what is literally on Sydney’s back door step.

As it develops, this site will be an important resource for bush walkers and others interested in the Australian Bush.

Make sure you check back often to see whats changed.
