The track was well marked and mostly well cleared. The efforts of the volunteers and DEC are appreciated. I enjoyed the hills and the beaches, but not the dune walking. The only real problem was the Denmark to Nullaki section which has been destroyed by development.
The water tastes so good. On some of the longer sections, and intermediate toilet and water tank would be a nice luxury.
Tom Road to Boarding House.
Sleeping on top of the rock behind Woolbales shelter, on a hot summer’s night. Overlooking the plains and Broke Inlet with not a single man made object visible 360 deg over many kms.
I walked it on my own, but enjoyed the company of others who I walked alongside or met at the shelters.
Once a wallaby charged out of the undergrowth and straight into my thighs, it would have been a good tackle if he had been bigger.
Your Best Equipment
My “free” Balga walking sticks which I found near Beraking. Hopefully they are now on their way back with someone else. I left them at Hidden Valley.
Your Worst Equipment
My Thermos, I got rid of it at the first opportunity.
Advice for Others
Concentrate on reducing the weight of your pack. Anything not used in the first week should be sent home.
