The Gratitude button keeps getting pressed and that never wears out.
Each and every person and organisation responsible for this magnificent track should be congratulated and very proud of their efforts - thank you.


Wallabies were beautiful.
Wrens are always a joy to watch

My scarf/ neck tie (muti purpose)  - heating/ cooling and mozzie protection
Crocs - always a joy to put them on
Poles x 2 - couldn’t have got there in the same condition without them

Your Worst Equipment
