DAY 12: MOUNT BROWN TO WILMINGTON

Today’s distance: 24.00 km

Total: 310.72 km

Still alive! Sorry my updates are a few days behind.


I want to share my genuine experience walking through the recent wooly weather so here it is!

Today was spent walking in the clouds. Once you get walking you are nice and warm. The trick is to keep moving and don’t stop for long. Lots of inclines and declines here to warm up my body.

Gail force winds and rain kicked up in the afternoon. Wind pushed the rain into my face. Each rain drop felt like freezing pin pricks. It’s times like these where you think “what am I even doing here?”.


Pushing on through farmland, I reached Horrocks Pass Road. I followed this to Wilmington where I was picked up by my beautiful and caring parents. I absolutely love having them around.
