General Comments

This was the official inaugural end to end walk from Albany to Kalamunda, to commemorate the opening of the track.

Food/Supplies Comments

We were absolutely spoiled by so many community groups along the way who kept us well fed and watered

Favourite Section

Northcliffe to Pemberton in one day was such an achievement and the day I fell in love with the forest


The absolute camaraderie with my fellow walkers who never ever gave up on each other



Your Best Equipment

My trusty walking boots

Your Worst Equipment

I began the walk 2 stone heavier than when I finished and the very tight jeans

Advice for Others

Always remember there is no such thing as can’t, and everything is achievable.  Even when it hurts just keep putting one foot in front of the other and you will be so grateful you did when you reach the end
