General Comments

Thanks you to the Foundation and the volunteers for their hard work to ;make this walk possible. Also “Bib’s best Burgers”:
1, Mumballup Tavern
2, Dwellingup Hotel
3, Collie Crown hotel
4, Albany Earl of Spencer
5, Northcliffe hotel!
These were the best in that order, the remaining one are not worth mentioning I would say.

Food/Supplies Comments

I came with freeze dried food and walked with rice, noodles, eggs and cheese. From 20 packages I sent 10 back.

Favourite Section

Northcliffe to Denmark.


Meeting my new friends and fellow hikers: Waugal, Snail and Moonbeams. For the Track the transition from the Pingerup Plains to Southern Ocean, especially the walk from Woolbales to Long Point - the vies!. The spring flowers! The animals! Awesome.

Personal Reactions

I learned that I’m capable of walking over 1000km…that alone is an incredible experience.


I saw a breaching whaale, a big dugite, and eagle and roos on the same day - Woolbales to Long Point.

Your Best Equipment

Black Diamond Hiking Poles.

Your Worst Equipment

The same poles when one of them broke and until I got replacement 300km later.
