South West Tasmania – day 6

Day 6 on the South Coast Track. After a morning ocean bathing session we packed up our carry bags and smashed out the last couple of hours of walking towards Cockle Creek. I was pretty happy to be leaving the sandflies which had destroyed my body over night, but saddened to leave the simple life we had been living the last 6 days.

South West Tasmania – day 5

Day 5 on the South Coast Track. After another late departure we took off from our awesome clifftop camp spot at Surprise Bay and started for our last camp on the South Cape Rivulet. Today was hot, muddy, and a reasonably short walk which was a treat for our pins. There was even a rad natural shower on the way!

South West Tasmania – day 4

Day 4 on the South Coast Track. All but one of the posse awoke happy to a scorcher of a day on the coast. Unfortunately classic Alfredo had failed to wash his hands sufficiently somewhere along the journey and had come down with a bout of gastro. So we donated all our hydrolyte, hand sanitiser and corking pills to Gastro Boy before we took off from Deadman’s Bay. Unfortunately for him, today we had decided to make a long day of it and make for Surprise Bay camp. Day 4 was easily the highlight of the trip as we were treated to seals, boats, swimming, side trips, snakes, sunsets, and Surprise Bay itself was alright too.
