General Comments

A very big thank you to the BTF, volunteers and rangers. The Track is a wonderful experience to have on our West Australian doorstep. To be able to follow the Waugal to a shelter and water every night is a small miracle, made possible by the above.
An enormous thank you to my personal Track angel (my wife Teresa). Washing, food, driving.

Favourite Section

All sections had their own highlights.


The people I met. From all over the world with a great attitude and warmth on meeting fellow travellers.

Personal Reactions

Every time I finished a section. I looked forward to the next.


Echidna, kangaroos, emus, bush rats (2 campsites).
Snakes aplenty, cockatoos, lizards, whales.

Big Agnes tent, sticks, Osprey 55l pack.

Doing the first 200km with old heavy gear.

Advice for Others

Start small with day walks, then overnighters. You will become addicted.
