Food/Supplies Comments

The best source of energy were fruit and nuts.

Favourite Section

Woolbales to Long Point, reaching the spectacular southern ocean


Walking through the giant Tingle trees, reaching mandalay and seeing the spectacular southern ocean.  Observing the incredible magnitude of the sand dunes along the coast.


Surprised at the lack of sighting in the Northern section.  Loved the close encounters with kangaroos, the cockatoos and the visiting marsupials at some of the campsites.

Your Best Equipment

Sea to Summit pillow.

Advice for Others

If possible keep your feet dry and clean.  Always take off boots and socks and allow you feet and the socks to dry out.
