Fantastic track. Well organized with shelters, water and toilets.
Poorly signposted across the plains.
Good resupply possibilities in towns. I regularly carried too much food. DRV has a delightful general store.
Walpole to Denmark.
Seeing the ocean for the first time. The majestic karri and tingle forests. Wildflowers and animal life.
I had no idea there was so much wilderness in SW WA. At one stage it was five days without seeing another person.
Heaps. Snakes, echidnas, roos, wallabies, lizards, emus, birds…..
