General Comments

Coming back to hike another two weeks of the track in winter, all the way from Queensland.

Food/Supplies Comments

Supermarket food had everything I needed, just plan it right.

Favourite Section

Valley of the Giants.


Enjoyed every day - hard and easy days.

Personal Reactions

Big thank you to all the track volunteers who made all this possible.


Snakes - lots of them, but not a problem,  just don’t step on one….

Your Best Equipment

My titanium billy and cup - used to eat and drink.

Your Worst Equipment

Backpack too heavy, as was most of my equipment.

Advice for Others

Wear gaiters.  March flies - Bushmans a must.  Also must have a PLB.
