Let someone know before you go

It’s a good idea to let someone know where you’re going. Fill in a trip intention form to send important details about your trip to your emergency contact. If you are lost or require help and have phone reception, call 000 and ask for police. The international standard emergency number is 112, if you dial this number in Australia you will be treated exactly the same as a 000 call. If you believe your life is at risk, activate your personal locator beacon (PLB), then make your position visible to rescue teams and keep warm and dry.

  • oops got a walk ahead of myself in the previous comment.

    We walked to Admirals Arch after setting up camp. It’s a nice trail walk with views of Remarkable Rocks and the lighthouse. However it took longer than expected.

    The bonus was we had Admirals Arch to ourselves, as it was early evening by the time we got there. However it was dark by the time we left. So we walked back via the road, which was a long slog.

    After the days trail walk and then this side trip, it made for a 20km day and I don’t mind admitting I was pretty shattered by the time we crawled into the tent.

  • Day 3 was better, under foot than Day 2, some rocky cliff top walking but also a lot of inland trails. The inland trails are good under foot, so you don’t need to concentrate so much on your foot fall and can enjoy the scenery.
