General Comments

I started my E2E in May 2016 with the intention of going all the way to Albany.  Unfortunately I suffered appendicitis along the Track and when I reached Pemberton couldn’t continue.  I had emergency surgery in Bunbury in July.
I started to walk again nearly 12 months later and finished on the 13th April 2017.

Food/Supplies Comments

Always carried too much.  I think I have a problem….........

Favourite Section

The south coast.


Many but climbing Mt Chance after walking 19km is up there with the best.  I felt like I was the only person alive, except for the fact I was talking to my family on my mobile.

Personal Reactions

Very disappointed when I realised I couldn’t complete it in one go.
Very emotional when I finally finished.  Its the greatest thing I have ever done for myself & by myself.  Something I will never forget.


Seen it all: snakes, lizards, kangaroos, emus, bandicoots, amazing bird life even a pod of dolphins surfing the waves.

Advice for Others

Don’t talk about it.  Just do it.  You won’t be sorry.
