General Comments

One of the significant accomplishments in my life. I discovered that my body can adapt and heal even while walking day in and day out for 7 weeks. I learned about West Australia’s south west and discovered places that I shall return to!

Food/Supplies Comments

My home dehydrated food was excellent. Next trip I would make it a bit more spicy, flavourful.

Favourite Section

Each section had its own unique points. Perhaps Northcliffe to Walpole!


Aigh lights? The people I met on the Track. Looking down on the mist and fog from the shelters first thin at sunrise.

Personal Reactions

Cost less than therapy! A wonderful way to settle your nerves and enjoy wilderness.


19 tiger snakes, enjoyed wallabies, emus, cockatoos, kangaroos. Bird song in the morning.

Your Best Equipment

Hubba single tent.

Your Worst Equipment

Can’t say. I used everything. Sent my pillow home from Dwellingup.

Advice for Others

Go light… eat well, don’t starve yourselves.
