Welcome to Blue Mountains History Hound!
During the past 25 years as I have been researching bushwalking tracks and other Blue Mountains History I have found a few mysteries and sometimes a find has raised further questions.
It has been my privilege to have solved a number of these mysteries, found answers to questions and, on a few occasions, rewritten our understanding of some aspect of local history.
Some of these topics will be covered in Blue Mountains History Hound reports.
The reports will be in PDF format for you to download. Please respect the fact that they are copyright and do ask me if you want to reproduce anything.
Thanks to my son Matthew and grandson Edward for their artistic efforts with our History Hound. Should we call him a mascot?
