1. Twilight of the Gods


c. CR Bravo 2017


The Gods were already old when talk started of retirement.

Only Zeus hung grimly to his corner of the old palace atop Mount Olympus. The others tended to avoid the place because the walk up the mountain left them gasping for air. Instead, they had drifted off, joining the diaspora to new places with the rest of their countrymen and women.

Here is the real story of the final days of the old Gods as they try to find a foothold in the modern world.

The pre-release version of Twilight of the Gods is available HERE

The completed book will be available towards the end of the year and a limited edition will be published in hard copy. For more details, or to pre-order, come back here shortly.


In the meantime, you can follow the story as it evolves in G+ HERE.

2. Wild Falls and Cascades of Australia



Many Australia wild falls are clustered around the Great Dividing Range from Queensland down to Victoria.

In the late nineteenth century, attempts were made to map and path some of the wild falls, but as the temper of the times changed, many of these have faded into the background.

The pre-release version of Wild Falls and Cascades of Australia is available HERE.

The completed book will be available towards the end of the year and a limited edition will be published in hard copy. For more details, or to pre-order, come back here shortly.

In the meantime, you can follow find some of the falls in G+ HERE.


3. The Dragons Eye Dyptych

A braided yarn about the great war between spider and dragon kin.

You say - The dragon must be asleep by now. Go get the gold, I cannot wait any longer.
I whisper - I am not sure. I think its eyes are still a little open.


I have been telling bits of the story here and on G+ for a little while now. The story has grown to a book of 400+ pages, including line drawings and maps of the places in the story.

A pre-release sampler of the Dragons Eye Dyptych will be available available here shortly.

The completed book will be available towards the end of the year and a limited edition will be published in hard copy. A sound version will be available and a film version is being considered. For more details, or to pre-order, come back here shortly.


In the meantime, you can read the original short stories on the Dragon Eye story page HERE

Cascades, Macquarie Pass National Park

Macquarie Pass abounds with small cascades and waterfalls. See also the nearby Rainbow Falls.


A short walk along a maintained path will get you to a 20m (60') fall into a decent pool.


Rainbow Fall

Clover Hill Road provides access to the Falls Walking Track in the Macquarie Pass National Park. There are small cascades along the Road, and the Track gives high views of the Macquarie Rivulet until it meets the creek at Rainbow Falls. Upstream there are a series of other waterfalls.

Rocks near the fall are slippery and some are fragile. Exercise extreme care.



Majors Creek Falls

Majors Creek Falls can be found in the Majors Creek State Conservation Area.

This area is not signposted and should be approached with a great deal of care.

The Majors Creek fall is a short walk from the town of Majors Creek. It races down a precipitous drop into the Araluen Valley. In total the creek's falls dance 240 m (790 feet) to the valley floor below. Only 15-20 meters of the main race from a chute fall is visible from adjoining cliff edges. Above the fall are a series of pretty pools and cascades.

While this fall was once well known (and is still well loved by the locals), the lookout for the fall is in ruins and the area is quietly fading back into the wilderness.

In the Talaganda Forest, an old logger's camp has become a park with an operating waterwheel, old mill machinery and short walks into the nearby forest.
