Favourite Section

Walpole to Denmark


Too many to mention them all, but the day spent walking from Valley of the Giants through Rame Head and onto Peaceful Bay at the height of wildflower season was unforgettable. As were the many wildlife encounters.


Countless kangaroos, numerous emus, occasional possums, an enchanting quenda (bandicoot), at least a dozen tiger snakes and dugites (all very well behaved) and one domestic cat that looked like it was a long way from home.

Advice for Others

Take plenty of food and a good book.
