Before putting your name down for this hike, please read all the information below, and especially the Important information at the end.
Come and join me on this beautiful hike in the Yuraygir National Park! I've lead this hike many times before, including three times last year. I love this hike so much, I want to show it off to the world! There are beautiful beaches and lots of Australian flora and fauna, including kangaroos, koalas, whales, dolphins and many different birds to see. This is a nice easy to moderate hike with a shower, a meal and a bed at the end of each day!

Safety Message - Safety is a key consideration when planning this walk. The dates are chosen to coincide with favourable tides as some sections include walking on rock platforms, especially on the last day. I will take an emergency beacon and first aid kit on the hike. I have basic first aid training. Daily briefings will be held to discuss the course, weather and other risks, prior to departure. By joining the hike, all participants accept the risks involved, and agreed to exonerate the leader and any other participants in our event from any liabilities, claims, including but not limited to liabilities and claims as a result of any injuries or deaths or damages arising thereof. All participants must sign a disclaimer prior to commencement of the hike.

First aid, blister pack, any drugs you rely on, and EAR PLUGS

Wi-Fi and mobile reception is so-so while hiking. Electricity, a kitchen, clean toilets, bed linen and hot showers are available in all cabins
Food – At each village there is a small store where you can buy food and drinks. Only buy enough for the following day, as everyone needs to carry their own pack. There is no opportunity to buy food or drinks during the hiking time each day. At most towns/villages there is also a hotel or club that sells reasonably priced meals for dinner. On Day 3 dinner is provided as there is no hotel or club.
