We are back from Australia after a very refreshing walk at GOW.
It is very well planned: keeping the starting point Apollo Bay and final end 12 Apostles, skipping some km in the middle of GOW.
It was not a relaxing walk but exciting to see breathtaking views: sky, ocean, waves, beaches, sands, shells, animals, plants, flowers, starry nights.
We did not expect that few people on the road, but still felt in security thanks to well indicated signs, also the mobile phone + emergency phone provided by Walk 91.
Signs are mostly well indicated and the 1st day route briefing before going was very important. Generally speaking, it is nearly perfect, except that there are still few bifurcations without signs. Some signs show small triangular shapes with red dots on, instead of simple blue arrows. We wondered if we were on the correct route.
Water is more important than food during the walk, esp in the severe sun.
Good rest and enough sleep are essential after one day’s hike, ready for the next day walk.
Though it is extremely hot in summer afternoon, warm clothes are necessary for evening and early morning periods.
To repel the annoying flies, a small branch of plant help. Fly repellent does not work very well.
Along the route, we did not see any rubbish. No trash on the beaches, in the waters. Fantastic!
Walk 91 can design the GOW programme according to your pace, need and time.
Thanks again for your assistance in our GOW hike.
