    Have recently discovered the delight of wearing kilts, I have three, two tartan Sportkilts (Modern Ferguson and Buchanan) and a denim utility kilt.

    Delighted to have found this forum as a result of a Pinterest post.

    Looking forward to respectful conversations with other members.

    Sincerely,
    Welcome from the far western side of Oregon. Kilts should be perfect for those Aussie "walkabouts" we here so much about.

    Thank you!

    Thanks everyone, quite overwhelmed with the number of welcome greetings!

    Shout outs to all of you, and Queenslander, where do you live mate?

    And to you, MuscratMike, the famous "walkabouts" you refer to are actually part of the indigenous Australian culture. Walkabout is a rite of passage during which males undergo a journey during adolescence, typically ages 10 to 16, and live in the wilderness for a period as long as six months to make the spiritual and traditional transition into manhood.

    In the modern Aussie world, us "whitefellas" (and I use the term deliberately and with respect) tend to leave that until we're at school leaving age when we migrate to a beach and get totally inebriated as under-age drinkers before reluctantly accepting we now have to knuckle down and behave responsibly as young adults. Not that most of them from ever really do... we're all 16 at heart aren't we!

    Myself I enjoy bushwalking and a kilt is ideal for that.

    Cheers all.

    James

    Welcome, JamesY. Your opening raises the question, "Is there a part of Australia that isn't beautiful?". I only saw the Gold Coast from the air on my
    way from Sydney to Hamilton Island airport going to speak at a healing conference on South Molle, but it did look a lovely place. Following the conference,
    got out to Uluru and Kata Tjuta. At Kings Canyon we had an English participant take a nasty fall and got to meet the Flying Doctors. Visited her in the
    hospital in Alice Springs the next day following our tour of their headquarters. Then back to Sydney and some of the Central Coast.

    Gorgeous country, everywhere you look. Different, highly varied gorgeous everywhere. But of course, I only saw a teeny tiny smidgen of your vastness.
    Wish now I'd had kilts then.
