General Comments

Great time of the year to walk the track, not too hot and no wading.  Good meeting all the Kalamunda to Albany End to Enders.  Track in great condition and easy to follow in most places.

Food/Supplies Comments

Dehydrated my own food and did food drops and called in favours from friends.

Favourite Section

To close to call.


Too many to mention, but down on Pingerup Plains would be up there with the best.

Personal Reactions

Great to know I was still up to it after walking Kalamunda to Albany 8 years ago.


Lots of it - cheeky bandicoots, possumsd and quaokkas at campsites.  Snakes in the southern half.  Lots of pigs and cats

Your Best Equipment

Lightweight free standing tent.

Your Worst Equipment

Anything claiming to be waterproof.

Advice for Others

If it is not essential to your survival don’t carry it.
