No sophisticated pre planning - Just made do with the more than adequate supplies in the track town along the way. You can get ready made dehydrated hiking meals in every town except for Northcliffe.

Thunderous continuous rain booming on the shelter roof at Boardinghouse. Wow!
Erik the Red’s quote from the trail - “The trail takes from you what you didn’t know you didn’t need and gives to you what you didn’t know you needed”.
Whales, sea eagles, rock wallabies, waving seals and the ever present kookaburras who seemed to cackle at my every misfortune!

Always look up at night when the skies are clear. You’ll never forget the explosion of stars above and the Dark Emu stretching across the Milky Way for as long as you live. Special.
