General Comments

Great Trip and definitely glad I chose to travel north; it just felt right.

Food/Supplies Comments

Posted mainly to Local Post Office’s as I hadn’t confirmed most accomodation until a few days before each of my four rest days. When I did know where I was staying I would post to the accommodation.

Favourite Section

The Tingle forest in the south


The Tingle forest by far as well as the two days out of Collie heading north. Given the rainfall any day that wasn’t raining!

Personal Reactions

Good mix of solitude and people interaction at this time of the year.


No snakes on the entire trip but lots of Kangaroos, Wallabies, and Cockatoos.

Your Best Equipment

Foot strapping taping greatly helped me achieve trip my quick timeframe.

Advice for Others

However long you plan to take to do your end to end ensure that you prepare both logistically as well as physically.
