General Comments

Loved the experience, it only got better the longer I went!
Fabulous track, fantastic facilities and wonderful hospitality in the towns along the way.

Food/Supplies Comments

Mostly bought from track towns along the way, was very handy to have a food box kept at North Bannister Roadhouse for me.

Favourite Section

Albany-Denmark for the coastal views, Walpole-Northcliffe for the unique landscape & Dwellingup-Kalamunda for views from the hills.


Meeting so many wonderful people in the huts, not something I’d thought about beforehand.

Personal Reactions

It was great to feel myself getting stronger, mentally & physically, the sense of self-reliance & learning the power of positivity.

Your Best Equipment

All of it! very happy with everything I packed and nothing was useless/dead weight.

Advice for Others

If possible, give yourself time.  Without the pressure of time constraints I was able to take time out for rest & wait out storms, made all the difference for me.
