From the casual walker to the hard-core BACKpack-wielding superhuman,there’s something for you.
The West Coast is home to some of Australia’s most untouched and untamed wilderness - and the best way to connect with it is to explore it on foot.
Group A: Sturdy walking shoes or boots, sun hat, sun block, sunglasses, clothes suited to the day, and water.
Group B: Group A + raincoat, woollen jumper or fibre pile jacket, snacks or drink.
Group C: Group A & B + thermal leggings or shorts, warm hat or beanie, gloves, waterproof trousers, gaiters, lunch, drink, and map.
You need to be prepared for cold weather, even in summer months. We’ve been known to have highland snowfall in January.
