At the end of 2013 I decided to do the Great North Walk. My friend Peter wanted to do it too, in fact he had all the maps, but sadly he could not get leave from work. Peter did fly down from Brisbane and we walked the first few days together, starting officially at Queen's Wharf on beautiful Newcastle Harbour. The GNW is about 250km and was a Bicentennial Project under NSW Premier Nick Griener.
Doing the Great North Walk Backwards
Day 1 - 8 Dec 2013 Newcastle to Warner's Bay
|Bar Beach- 8 December 2013|
Day 2- 9 Dec 2013 Warner's Bay to Heaton Gap
|Peter, finally we made it to Heaton Gap.|
Early next morning Peter had to catch a bus to Morisset, train to Newcastle, then flew back to work at Brisbane. I decided to rest for a day, to drink lots of water and do some drawings of the local bush.
