Good advice for the hikers about to start the Friends Supported Walk, stay safe and enjoy! Leading a hike is not always as simple as strapping on your pack and expecting the rest of the group to follow. There are different levels of fitness, capabilities, experience, skills, personalities and pace of individuals to consider when keeping your hiking group together.

WOW, good wrap! You all would have met our legendary co-founder, Bill Golding in the video. Well he has received a thank you letter, I thought I'd share.... "I have learned that you are the person behind the Great South West Walk. I have hiked in Europe, North America, Asia and the Himalayas, as well as throughout Australia, and this walk is easily equally the best of any long hikes in Australia and certainly the best coastal hike ANYWHERE. Thank you so much for what you have created." And A BIG SHOUT OUT to all the many volunteers involved with the walks maintenance & construction, all legends, thank you.

So happy to have the DVD now - beautiful memories forever. Thanks again to my talented husband Peter for producing such a wonderful DVD. Today the Glenelg Shire Council hosted the much-anticipated film of The Great South West Walk. Launched by former State Premier Denis Napthine, a full house at the Portland Art Centre was treated to the premiere of this outstanding production showcasing one of the great walks of the world. Filmed over the last two years, the film features the insights and experiences of three walkers who traveled through this rugged and beautiful landscape. This unforgettable journey winds around three National Parks, the pristine Glenelg River and the vast Southern Ocean. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the making of this production, including the Friends of the Great South West Walk, the Portland Field Naturalists Club, Powerhouse Productions, Glenelg Shire Council and the many volunteers who assisted in so many ways.

Another stunning pic of the "Enchanted Forest " section of the GSWW. This section is a very protected area from the weather due to it facing East and it has a good canopy overhead. This makes it a fantastic experience almost any day or time of the year. Tip - Its best to walk down the steps and head South West towards the Cape Nelson Light House and either have a second vehicle placed at the Flat Rocks car park or turn and walk back to where you began. Many thanks for allowing the Share, Darryl. This Mornings walk through the Enchanted Forest, just beautiful.

I really love it when you feel like you're discovering something just for yourself. That's how I felt hiking the Great South West Walk, out of Portland in Victoria. Not many people, LOADS of wildlife and an amazing variety of landscapes. Just yours to discover. For more info check out the current Great Walks Annual magazine for an article I wrote on this awesome hike. #greatsouthwestwalk
