An enjoyable track very well maintained thanks to the volunteers who do a great work. Breathtaking views along the track and friendly people to talk to. In short, It was a real pleasure and I had a perfect weather all in all.
I brought my pre-cooked french noodles (4KG) and I ressupplied without problem in the villages. More or less choice but when you are hungry it’s not a problem. Most of the time , bread and condensed milk (handy tube). Miam!....
The section from Northcliff to Albany with its different landscapes.
Probably when you see the sea from the ridge for the first time.
A good opportunity to try a long distance track before a longer one.
Different kind of animals, snakes, kangaroos, emu, grey fantail, scarlet robin, red-tailed black cockatoo, red-winged fairy wren (my favorite)......plenty of others. And such beautiful and huge trees.
Your Best Equipment
Probably my tent (Arpenaz) and my sleeping mat (trek forclaz air rouge Quechua) after a long walk without forgetting my comfortable Moab 2 Gore-tex mix shoes.
Your Worst Equipment
Nothing in particular.
Advice for Others
No more than a 16 KG rucksack and don’t forget your poles. Take also a free newspaper to dry your shoes if need be. I was happy to start from Kalamunda. It might be even better in spring because of the flowers.
