- Start date: 21 April 2008
- Age When Completed: 69
- Direction Walked: North to South
- Others in Group:
More plastic boxes required to keep bats and mice from food - No point in hanging up food mice and rats can get to them Box as at Dookanelly best option. Campsites - small tables would be OK
Apart from North Bannister (due to renovations) plenty of food available at all small towns. (Coles at Collie best).
Woolbales to Long Point and Giants to Rame Head.
Dolphins surfing - seals waving at us - blue wrens and robins at camp sites - quokkas, bandicoots at Torbay - Crossing Torbay Inlet!!! Got rather wet.
Did same walk Aug/Sept 07 and surprised to see so many flowers and bushes in bloom and fungi incredible - Red, orange, purple mushrooms.
Lots of wallabies, kangaroos, white and red tail cockatoos - wedge tail eagles - lots raptors at cliffs around Southern Ocean.
Your Best Equipment
Sleeping bag and Termarest.
Advice for Others
Pack everything in plastic bags for that Inlet crossing. Don’t leave open food packs in your clothing or basic pack at night. The rats and mice will chew thru backpacks and anything else to get to food.
