The start of the GNW journey, what went from a single day hike to an obsession to complete the whole thing with just day hikes . We have a number of others join us on different sections.

These blogs hope to give you an idea of the experiences we had from river crossing, clambering up 4x4 tracks, getting lost, running out of water, food and battling rising tides. And the logistics of doing 8 hikes between Sydney and Newcastle.

Thanks to all that enjoyed the experience with us!.
