General Comments

A wonderfully varied walk which was tougher than I expected it to be as far as the hilly terrain and clambering over trees. We soon settled into the routine of packing walking, unpacking, sleeping and repeat. Met some lovely people along the way in particular Leao, Bibb & Byron, veterans of the Bibb.

Food/Supplies Comments

Muesli, Weetbix, dried apple, powdered coconut milk are great for breaky. Celery, carrot carry well for a crunchy snack. Boiled eggs also travelled well. Balingup was the only town where food (ie dinner) is a problem if you come into town late during the week.

Favourite Section

Warren to Schafer.


The site of each campsite at the end of the day. A cup of green tea & a piece of chocolate. The wildflowers everywhere we went!

Personal Reactions

I am resilient, flexible and patient. And tougher than I expected.


Kangaroos, emus, snakes, goannas, ants!! Mardu (by evidence of chewed pack), feral pigs.
